    Heres the scene, Im a small company with 60 accounts. i do some leaf removal in the fall for all sorts of people. This year I just purchased myself a Little wonder leaf loader. I, of course, dont have the one ton dump yet, coming next season i hope, has anyone used a loadhandler to empty their truck full of leaves. Second question where do I get a mesh tarp. thanks Joe

    Most guys I see with pick ups used the vac to empty it. If not get out the pitch forks. As for the tarp, I have no idea.

    I use a loadhandler and it works well... the only thing I would recommend doing is build to little boxes in front of the wheel wells the are the same height and width as the wheelwells so the load is directly on the loadhandler. If you don't as soon as the load in front of the wheel wells gets to the wheel well it will stop moving and the loadhandler will slip underneath the load.

    What size little wonder did you get and how much was it? That is my next purchase.

    Sounds like a plant tarp are we talking heavy fabric tarp if so go to your local wholesale nursery.
