    How do you like that Billy Goat leaf loader? Is it electric start or recoil? We looked at getting one, but stayed with another Trac Vac. Our dump trailer is setup almost exactly like yours. However, we have our leaf loader mounted in a receiver tube on the back of the dump trailer.

    Not sure how long it is. F350 with 8ft bed, 14ft goose-neck Dump, and 8ft utility trailer. It's legal in Oklahoma to pull a bumper pull trailer behind a goose-neck. It pulls really easy. If the dump trailer makes the turn the utility trailer will too.

    If you're referring to my post, I just bought it this year and haven't used it yet. It's a recoil. I wanted to mount mine to the dump, but I needed room for my other equipment.

    Thanks. Just unhook the little trailer and dump.
    Doesn't take any longer than a swing away loader.

    Wow, out here the township collects the leaves, I just have to put them on the curb via blower/bagging/ old fashioned rake/tarping.

    You don't. Lol
    I put a pneumatic tire on the jack, so if I have to I'll just unhook and it's easy to roll around.
    Like I said not the most practical. But it's what I already own.

    i think its awesome. Im always trying to think of a way to get my lawn equipment to a job when Im using my dump trailer. I think thats about the only way.

    I have the same dump tailer, 7 ton, regular hitch though, how do you like it?
