I'm letting out some company secrets here.
Sorry the these pics are not that clear:
Ah nice, I pretty much bag every thing I do and have thought about using a loader all the time. Ive mowed with a walker style toro, exmark , and dixie choppers 3 bag systems. I don't know what rider I will get this time around. However Ive envisioned a dump with the leaf loader located under the bed (think tool box location). So that using a vac is always an option. Without the hassle of the swing mounts and stuff.
I have thought of the side mount in the past but, you will still have to go through some work to dump. The only other system that works well is to mount in front of the dump. A friend of mine had it custom made for himself. It works great but, you lose a least 2 ft of bed space.
What I have does not interfer with the trailer and you just pull 1 pin and swing the vac to dump. One man operation.
I see, I was thinking along the line of going thru the front corner of the bed and have the shute bolted to the floor of the dump. I saw a small trash compactor set up on a cabover a few years ago and I immediately wondered how much leaves and grass would fit in it.
Wow that's impressive.
Are you running any VX4s? If so what can you tell us about the deck and how much more if any power the hydos use?
I also have a red new body style GMC dump, just like yours! I really like it. They are great work trucks! How do you like yours?
I don't think any other of us on here will ever own that many mowers. Very impressive.
