    Does anyone have a good plan or link to another thread for constructing a leaf box for a dump insert with a billygoat tailgate leaf vac (18hp).

    I just bit the bullet and installed a trac-vac truck cover on an EZ Dumper. If you are building from scratch, build it high enough to stand up inside, I'll be using mine over winter for bagged sand & salt. The whole top is a .25" hardware cloth vent with two covers that float up to relieve air pressure. I bolted a 2 X 6 on edge to the top of the tail gate to close the gap and hold the top two doors closed. Last season I used wood sideboards with a mesh tarp over, it didn't work too well.
