    There's a pic you wont see here the guy on the loader is wearing shorts. Half my fall season is 30-40 degrees for the highs for the day.

    Here is mine, first year for the leaf loader for me, its been good so far, I was also concerned about tongue weight being a single axle trailer, but it seems normal, I had a spare tire and heavier jack that I had to take off, so the weight increase is maybe 120 pounds or so, wondering if anyone covers their leaf loaders overnight when it rains or during frost? I got a generator cover for 20 bucks that fits perfect, just have to take off the discharge tube, also how does everyone secure their hoses? I just take mine off for the time being and put in in the bed of the truck. Forgive the lousy pictures form a blackberry, I still have to finish painting the inside (it had leaves in there when i did it, lol) this thread needs more updated loader pics, I know there is lots out there.

    here's mine for the season.
    Using a Fradan truck loader mounted in my trailer, a JRCO leaf plow, a Scag V-ride with custom-made vac bagger, and a leaf box on my F250. It's sweet except that I need a dump insert !

    Looks good, I thought about build a box in the bed of the truck, but I do small residential properties so no need to haul a rider or any bug equipment, so I just bring a 21", trimmer, hedge trimmer, blower, 2 gas can, 2 pales, 1 tarp and rakes and stuff, leaves room for the tube in the bed, works out okay for my small one man operation.

    yeah I wanted to build a box in the trailer, but then I couldn't take the mower with me, and that plow/ bagger has saved a lot of time, so it's worth it. Nice set-up though; what are the dimensions of the trailer? I would think the leaf-loader would make the trailer tongue pretty heavy? Did it last year on a little trailer and totally killed the frame!

    Trailer is 5x10, but is built really well, not some pos home depot special,the tongue weight is fine, I was more concerned about the truck, being that its only a 1500, but both were fine and when I first hooked it up it felt like nothing was there, which was a relief. You can see the frame on the final picture, best built trailers around.

    Nice rig man, that's bigger than most municipal rigs, but yes high costs, plus 4 people there, I like the diversity in the rigs, from my small solo operation rig, to that large municipal style one, keep it up.
