    So...you like shovel snow into it and it blows it into a trailer or something? That's pretty cool if it's something you need :dizzy:

    must've been a pretty small dump trailer then?............I get sooo many leaves here, that I can fill up a 12' grain body dump with another 3' of box on just two decent sized yards.......thats with like a 30hp loader too!

    Nice, that'll work fine. I picked up a billygoat with a 16hp on it. picked it up used, like brandnew. It actually is on a MM2 frame lol...gonna hafta change that soon.

    I think the guys in the northeast can agree to this...you havent experienced a leaf cleanup untill youve done one up here.

    I am sure leaf clean up is a whole different animal up there.......but for here this rig works great.......I just bought a Force 13 HP.......it is heavy also...

    SO now I have a Cyclone Rake
    Shindiawa BP
    Force 13hp
    BG truck loader 13hp
    and a HH Stihl blower....

    I was thinking about a leaf plow for the Stander.......

    Dumb question, but what and where are you blowing the leaves into?

    Well, usually a person rakes up or uses blowers to make a big pile of leaves and then sucks them up with this unit and blows them into a box of some sort. The box can be on a dump trailer, dump truck or what ever a person wants to haul the leaves to a dump site. The loader itself will reduce the leaves 12:1 so, u can really haul alot of leaves offsite. We have a loader on a 1 ton dump w/ a 12ft body and can get about 15 cu. yds. in it.:D
