Fall clean up rig set up (insert, loader, pulling trailer)

Here is my set up which works well with little physical work and you can have a trailer behind it. It solves the problem of lifting the loader on/off, being able to tow a trailer, and not mounting the loader on the trailer.

Basically swing away the loader, pull the rear door (going to improve that), and dump the load. Small loads you can have the trailer still hooked up. Large loads I disconnect the trailer before unloading.

It has a Truckcaft 8ft dump insert (bought used $2000), a Billy goat leaf loader (used $900), Billy Goat swing away mount (new $700), Trac Vac bed cover (used $350), and a custom mount to attach the swing away to the dump insert ($200). $4150 total.

Depends on the jobs for the day. I have some large jobs that can fill it twice, but again they are large. The loader packs them in good so that helps a lot. Again just depends on the days workload. I think at a 12 acre cemetery with a lot of trees we probably dump it 6 times in a day. 2 to 3 mower/baggers going the whole time.
