    Who cares what it looks like, if it fits the leaves then get r done. I am making a box for my truck. I am going to paint it though.

    Oh im not about to say anybodys box/rig looks bad......
    i just thought it would be cool to see what other peoples set up looks like in different states/ areas

    --Also it could give others the opportunity to get ideas from others (for their box they are making or are gonna make)
    this is a win win situation!

    Right now our new 2010 Chev 3500HD Dually with an 8ft dump is in the shop getting a new 9 1/2 ft Western MVP put on it. As soon as we get it back we'll build a new box and attach our new 16HP Trac Vac to it.

    Don't say I'm not doing my part to end the recesssion.

    Mine is partly in the back yard and partly in the shed. I run my standard mowing setup for about half of my accounts where I have onsite disposal and the other half I load my Lazer into my dump truck.

    Every year I say that I'm gonna mount the leaf loader and box and go after piles after I'm done with my regulars but it never happens. I've tried using the leaf loader for my regulars but I find it to be more efficient to just pick them up with my mower and dump to my trailer.
