  • 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.
