Thought I'd post pics of my homemade leaf vac. 1&2 shows attachment to deck that Marlboro 180 wanted to see. 3&4 shows restrictions that have to be removed for max air flow. Ed: #4 shows the shredder plate removed since it covers half of the opening. I failed to get a pic of it in place. 5&6 show intake and exhaust attachment to chipper. 7,8&9 show tlr interior,gate, and overall pic of the rig.
Thanks for looking,
Mike

Ed: Well, the pics didn't post in the order I described but I guess they're self explanatory.

Is the whole top vented, or just the piece in the rear? I'm still trying to figure how much area I need open for the one I'm building.

The sides and top are all sunscreen which will let the air thru but hold the small particles. Never had any restriction problem w/ it.The trailer will dump but w/ the fabric it won't so I unload w/ a manure fork.
