    A friend of mine has one and uses it to deliver split firewood and loves it. I have seen it used once and it did it what it is suppose to do.

    I got one and they are great for the price, Especially doing leaf cleanups or when you have to bag grass. I hate putting all that on the trailer along with the all the machinery, gets crowded really quick. But throw it in the truck, crank it out, and then use the leaf blower and get the rest.

    Best investment I have made. Cut my truck dump time from 15-20 min to 3 minutes max. Do it unless you have a insert. That is my next purchase for next year. One step at a time.

    Get one. They are awesome. I got mine last spring and I dont know how I ever got by without it. It does everything it is supposed to do. A great investment for not a lot of money.

    :D I just got one for my step dad at Christmas. He's always getting mulch and yard stuff, and has a hard time unloading due to bi lateral shoulder surgeries. He never wants to ask me to deliver anything for him and mom, so I figured it may be worth the 90 bucks i paid for it. We'll see here as soon as it warms up, he's waiting to get it installed

    Anybody use a LoadHandler for a 5X10 trailer? If so, how did you mount the brackets for the take-up spool?

    Honestly - i dont care for those. Insert is the best way to go. But for the money - it could be useful for small loads. I used one for a year and it was a pita. try to unload topsoil. they say it works, but if your only loaded with a 1/2 yard??

    I have pulled 2 solid yards of top soil out of my 3/4 ton with absolutely no problems. You better work those bicepts out Scaper. j/k :)

    When you do have a real heavy load you do have to clean out behind the wheelwells from time to time. But I can honestly say I have had my truck loaded as far as I would ever want to load it, and had no problems.
