    U may see the strap i have on front of box. I use that when its empty, it doesn't seat well in dump cradle, so it wabbles a bit . When it's full , no problems on wobbling, just squatting,lol

    Leaves were from back yard, 36 inch gate, we tarped them out because not worth taking in mower. I usually use my 60 z to mulch them up too .

    I added 2 feet to top of box because the dump charges by truck size , not cubic yards. mine holds about 14 cubic yards.

    yeah well i just use the pallet and chain tech. and once i pull the pallet the leaf brick comes right out then everything else i just sweep out!

    Unless i use the dump truck (i only use that if the trailer is down.. or full

    Thats great...my box on my trailer figures just over 280 cubic ft which I guess is just a bit over 10 yards.

    20hp loader, been using a vac setup like this on trucks for about 25yrs always works great and never clogs. holds just about 20yds. never been stopped for having it on front, does obstruct view in one spot but it's a pain to break it down every time you move the truck. If I have to take off up tube it's just two quick bolts.

    Looks like a very effective and efficient setup. Not the prettiest, but I'd bet you can get a lot done during the day with that.

    On another note, how do all you guys in CT not bump into each other daily?...your state's so small, I mean, you must all have tight coverage areas.

    no not the prettiest(but thats alright).........but I'm big on efficiency. the loader used to be a tow behind, when I downsized a bit I went to a one truck setup. We have a lot of trees out here and proccess lots of leaves.
