    I have a probably five year old truck loader b and s vangaurd nice eagle loader. It is a hitch mounted loader with the swing away. But i am mounting on the trailer due to the fact that i need to bring the mower and blower with me as well. I have a 2010 chevy silverado 1500 without the dum bed. To much weight? any suggestions

    I had a 1500 gmc way back in 01, i never had a leaf box on it, but it should be able to handle the weight, unless you have a 18ft trailer loaded? i found that it was a waste to try to use a small truck for leaves, you cant fit much in the bed, but if thats all you have, it will work you just have to make more trips.
