    looks pretty nice.....how about a full side view??? How many HP is the loader???? I like that you have it turned so the intake faces the curb......I want to do that to mine when I get it.....

    Very nice. Those supports will probably interfere with dumping if you leave them in. I'm guessing they are only there for transport.

    Thats sweet:cool2: Do yourself a big favor. put a tarp on the top part where you will be sucking up the leaves. if the wind blows in your direction, you will get covered.

    I have a piece of flex hose on the end of my steel discharge pipe that just fits insde the hole. This way I don't have to disconnect or play with anything when I finish dumping. The flex pops into the hole as it comes down and back to sucking we go.
    I agree you don't need the inside braces, likely there to support your weight while you built it.

    Good job, especially with the details. The grommet and slide set up where the discharge chute goes through the box as well as the the mounting for the intake hose are nice touches. Again, nice job.
