    I'm looking to get a leaf shredder to mount on the front of my trailer that will shoot the debri into my truck bed. I have only found one so far. Could someone please point me in the right direction as to finding more models. Please let me know of web sites and/or brands to look at.

    what have you found so far? I have a giant vac mounted on the front of my dump trailer (blowing into the dump trailer, not truck). Giant Vac makes a vacuum that mounts on the tailgate.

    i have a giant-vac model 2501 mounted on my trailer blowing into a 1 ton dump truck. it was origanly a tow behind that the wheels and tongue were removed and the vertical discharge pipe had about 1.5 feet cut off. discharge height is about 11.5 feet from the ground to the bottom of the flex pipe. you would have to set it on your trailer and measure to determine the height you would need.

    Trac-Vac has a unit mounted on a trailer, I saw it a couple of years ago.
    I wouldn't want a dedicated trailer but, it got me thinking that a 12 foot trailer could double up as a leaf loader. It looked like a regular tailgate type loader that just shot the debris into a trailer, it was mounted on the trailer tongue though.
