    My gosh dude!!! That thing is a monster!!!!!!! You must be doing massive cleanups. How much did you pay for it and where'd you get it?

    No money to be made in fall cleanups around here. The city has vac trucks running non stop. All people have to do halfassed rake the leaves out to curb and the city picks it all up for free. Good deal for homeowners but terrible for lawns guys.

    My dump truck converted to leaf removal rig. I follow with my pickup and enclosed trailer filled to the max with equipment. All the sticks wind up in the bed of the pickup. IMG_0639.jpg

    Looks good!
    Why dont you pull the trailer with that truck?
    (thats why most people choose that way to set up their loader.)
    I bet some leaves fall back on the hood since that pipe is angles down like that lol but im sure thats int a big deal

    Great rigs guys! I only have an F-150 in my second year, and I was wondering if anyone had any clever ideas on how I could make the most out of it for leaf season. Oh...I do pull a 5 X 12 open trailer with it. Thanks a bunch!
