    Mystic, with those leaves around your truck, about how much does it fill up your box? I'm wondering if its worth buying a loader for 3k or just to toss the leaves into a dump trailer and just stamp them down by walking on them?

    1/4, if that for the whole property. We could usually go a whole day before dumping, we did the calculations an figured we could fit 11.8 cu yards of leaves in the box.

    You'll fit 10x more leaves into a trailer or box with a loader, than trying to stomp them down. The loader will grind them up and pack them in. Not to mention how tiring it is to be stomping down mass amounts of waist deep leaves all day. We stomped them down two years ago, and last year got a loader- will never do it any other way from here on out.
    My 2 cents for what its worth.
