    What do you think? I have a converted 8hp billy goat leaf loader. if this was mounted to the front of a trailer do you think it would be faster than the tarp method or about the same...
    whats your thought?

    8HP will work fine in a pickup or a trailor of the same size. I used one for years. The bigger the loader is (HP), the more volume you can push, espically when wet.

    I've got the Billy Goat with a 16hp B&S. Glad I went bigger. It really handles large volumes of leaves, especially dry. Never had a problem with it picking up wet either. If you are going to be doing a lot of leaves, I think it would be worth the extra $, since time & labor savings is what you are spending the $ for in the first place!
