    Just wanted to see what sort of customer mounting ideas you all have done in the way of truck loading leaf vacs.

    Lets see some pics of where or how you have yours mounted.

    How much does a trailer like that weigh?

    I've been curious to this method, it sure makes loading AND unloading a lot faster (and easier) than a 6x12x2 non-tilt... I can only hold maybe 10 yards, and it's back-breaking work.

    But the weight concerns me, do you need at least a full-ton truck to pull it, or is 3/4 ton enough?

    I wouldn't mind seeing a close up of that mount if you've got one. I was thinking of doing something like that this year.

    How easy do those tubes clog up that are on the front of the truck? I mean from the top of the loader to the truck itself. It seems that if there was a clog, it'd be a pain trying to unclog it. Just curious.:confused:
