    I have a 14x7 dump trailer i just bought. I built the sides up an additional 5 feet all around. Im going to put a leaf VAC loader on it, I guess thats what they call it. I believe you mount it on passenger side or drivers side. I cant find one. where do i go?

    Here is a pic of my setup. It's a 16hp Lesco I paid $1500. They had it laying around and needed to get rid of it. It usually sells for $2200. I love the way I have my setup. It allows me to pull a trailer and dump my load without taking off the loader.

    I use a 16hp Billy Goat mounted on the front of a 6 x 10 dump trailer.

    I have the 16HP Billy Goat... It hangs off the back of our dump trailer. The trailer bed is 16' I believe...maybe 18. You should be able to pick these up where you purchase commercial mowers at.

    I believe if you hang it over the passenger or driver side you will be illegal...or at least need a special permit for transporting your trailer cause you'll be over the federal 102" limit.
