    I 'm not going to pay 2800.00 for a collection system for my machine. I built this thing for less than 300.00 and a few evenings after work! this thing will pack the box tight to the top! with toggle switch dump from the seat!

    It use to be a Sears chipper vac like this one. the deck boot was made from the chippers drop chute.

    Around here these things(chippers) are a dime a dozen, And i felt the need to make something useful from something useless! 20 buck yard sale item.

    Thats awesome. I was going to take my pos chipper and use it as a leaf loader. This might be what I do as well. I was going to use corrugated irrigation pipe for the tube. Looks good.
