    That's a nice setup to haul away leaves. I haul some away in the front of my enclosed. Try to dump in the woods of my customers property - if they have any.

    I've wanted a vac like that for years. I don't have a lot of properties that need hauling away, just the commercials, the estates usually have a designated dump spot, but it's nice to dump on one end and put the truck on the other to speed things up.[​IMG]

    Pick the unit up used. Its a billy goat pro 11hp. 12foot 10inch dia hose. Had a piece of tree branch go in close to 2inch and didnt miss a beat. The suction is amazing!! Be sure nothing falls out of your pockets or its gone

    Nice! Just picked up a new-to-me vac with the 16hp vanguard a month or two ago, hoping for good results, going on the dump trailer Monday.

    Any more pics of how you mounted it? I've got a platform setup thats going on the tongue.

    It already had the truck mount on it so it can hang from a dump body tailgate. so I cut a few holes in the mesh on the trailers gate and a small gusset to hold some of the leaning weight, $300 in wood and a trap roof so we can fill it with mulch in the spring. I wasnt using that trailer anymore so it worked out perfect. not the prittest unit but works amazing...:mechanic:

    That look very much like the setup we have except we have expanded metal sides. My guys inhale small pumpkins, annuals, mums, sticks, leaves you name it. Have had the billy goat for 7 years and hasn't once let us down.

    That looks great. I would love one especially being solo right now. I am looking at buying a 13 hp blower I currently just have a br600. Def going with billy goat, do you have any input on the push blowers?
