      With all your experimentation of it last year, will you be doing anything differently this year when it comes to your setup or your operation?

        I upgraded to two Redmax 8500 blowers WoW they move some air.
        Got a 48" z-turn with blower.
        I am hoping that jobs go faster so more money for me!!!

          willshome, very nice man, looks real good..when I worked in lower Michigan we had a 24' box truck that my brother modified to accept the vac so it attached to the truck..like two hitch mounts you slid it into..and he came up with a way to unload it (cant dump) so they had a drum that was permanently attached to the truck somehow on the back right below the doors and a strong mess type tarp attached to the drum, an electric motor to turn the drum, and we would run the tarp to the front of the box then up to the top and back to the back on the cieling where it was permanently attached there too...we had pins & rods we put in on the corners or where the tarp changed directions on the front end of the box, top & bottom... anyway, when it was full we would pull the pins out, open the doors, latch them and hit the switch for the drum and the drum roll the leaves out as it rolled the tarp up...was really neat and saved us a sh** load of time loading & unloading. Its been a while since I was down there but I will see if my brother can snap a few photo's for me...

              yeah he's checking the forums out & threads & stuff but his computor messed up on him so he will have to get registered on here later...he's also a master machanic..since the '80's so he's good at fixing stuff & fabricating. I've learned a lot through the years from him....a good asset to have when your equipments down...

                A short video of how it works would be wild to see as well.

                We see discussions on here every once in a while about if it's worth it or not to get the bigger powerful equipment.

                Here is a great opportunity for you to experiment with how this new equipment effects your productivity and if you feel it was worth it.

                  yeah its pretty cool, I 'll talk to him probably tommarrow and see if maybe he can vidio it in action and take some close-up pic's of it too, I'm sure they are getting ready for clean-ups soon so he will have to go through everything on it anyway.

                      That is very interesting!

                      What initially got you to think about installing such a crane on there? Was it only to be used for the leaf loader or has it been used for other purposes as well?

                        the crane helps with snow blowers, logs, hook the corners of a tarp to lift debris..... saves my back

                          Where do you load the snow blowers into? The back of that truck or onto a trailer?

                            back of the truck. Bed sits to high for ramps with out using the winch on the headboard to drag them up
                            I carry 3 large two stage and 2 single stage snow blowers

                              Nice rig. Why do you carry around so many snowblowers?

                                Most of my jobs have walkways or garage doors.
                                I some times have a helper (or two) with me.
                                Some driveways are hard to plow with deep snow (no place to push)
                                I am very good at breaking snow blowers and don't have time to fix mid storm.
