    i bought a 16hp Lesco leaf loader w/ the swing away mount and when i picked it up there was no hardware and no instructions.. i have no clue on how this thing is supposed to hook together. the lesco dealer i bought it from said it was easy but didn't know anything about it........??????????????????????? if any of you guys have one could you possibly tell me how it works. thanks

    i would contact lesco company online and ask for some instructions or take it back to lesco and go get a giant vac or one from someone else who is smart enough to put one together and service what they sell...............but thats just me

    yeah i know but i really do like the machine i know a lot of people have them but it's just the point. i think a lot of these places i deal w/ look at me as a "kid"because of my age (20) they just don't take me serious enough i guess. i dunno

    try contacting lesco direct instead of through your service center. They will tell you what to do or give you the number of someone that can Good luck. There phone number is on there website.

    go back to the dealer and tell them that you mean bussiness and want the hardware and instructions...I hear where you are coming from as far as being treated like a kid. I am almost 16 and whenever I walk into a dealer its like a big joke and no one asks if I need help or anything.

    Its bogus:dizzy:

    Hi ManleyLawn,

    This was the best pic I could find that showed the swing away. Maybe it will help you.

    Place the sucker in the mount, drill 4 3/8" holes through the sucker base where the holes are on the swing mount, get stainless 3/8" 1" bolts and nuts with lock washers to bolt it together. What else don't you understand? The green flap that goes over the discharge chute makes a good paperweight.
