    Here's a .jpg of my setup, the .bmp might not open for some you you. If you are seriously going to get into leaf removal and use a vac soing so, I would go bigger than a 16hp....maybe a 20hp or larger.

    We also have the 16hp Lesco. We put a hitch on our dump trailer that a platform goes into and the loader sits on. When its time to dump we slide the platform/loader onto our forklift.
