    I rarely see leaf loaders out here in the southwest...We just rake onto tarps and put it in the trailer.

    we just use our 12'open trailer and stomp and load the leaves in on tarps.all by hand and all unloaded by hand, doesn't take long with a pitchfork.

    anyone having trouble w/ the leaves coming out after they sit for a day or 2? Im thinking I will have to dump daily whether its full or not, and btw my bed goes really high, the problem is that the vac chews them up really fine and they are starting to decompose quick

    u got wet leaves! (sounds like)
    or moist

    I never have this problem with salt... but i just jerk the truck a little bit......like forward fast then stop or vice versa.......
    i dont usually load leaves into my dump. unless my pick up is full but when i do load it up they sometimes sit for a couple days or so not too much of a problem....

    Ferris walks with gators, br600 blowers, 42" Walker GHS, 18hp Giant Vac
    Removed front cage and slide on 8ft Bri Mar dump insert.
