  • Leaf loader swing hitch

    My freind owns a landscaping company and with leaf season coming he wanted to build a swinging hitch for his leaf loader to save on time dumping leafs. Its a little overkill but it gets the job done.

    Nice job. I especially like the roll cage to protect the leaf blower.

      I have done similar to a few units i mount the flanges to the d-side corner post of the body and swing the blower unit around to the side of the dump and use a chain hook latch with the thumb slide to attach it to a link i weld to the side to prevent swing back when the body is raised.This time of yr i see a few impellar housing and discharge chutes needing patchs i just did 2 last week for a couple of local leaf chasers around my area.BTW job on that looks good.

        thats next, his impeller housing is getting some holes in it.

          Is there something to hold it in the open position?

              I guess i just didnt want him getting any random phone calls, some thing that holds the impeller on? or the housing? its just bolted together
