Does anyone out there utilize a small dump truck for grass clippings and pull a trailer for mowers.
Looking at the possibility of a setup with a ramp going from the trailer onto the small dump truck to back up and unload clippings into truck.
Does anyone have a setup such as this that they could post photos; or is there something already posted?

I dont trust 500+lb mowers and cheap ramps. we pull a mower trailer with our one-ton and we just load the grass the old fasion way. empty baskets into green barrels, when barrels full push to truck with mower, empty barrel into truck

i thought about something like that. our 52 ztr weighs in at 1000lbs without my ass and grass clippings. i wouldn't trust that weight on ramps that you can easily lift. i'd kill myself. :dancing:
