If you cant afford an actual dump insert Make your own. Couple years ago my neighbor who was a 17 year old had me help him make this. Dad refused to pay for his dump insert so we rigged one up.
Winch $70 for a 12 volt 5k winch.
Wood, hinges, screws- $500

Total cost about 600 bucks.

Winch limited the lift hight a little bit but He managed to get the leaves out!
OH Oh OH! We also added brackets on the inside of the box so i could lift it out of his bed with my skidsteer. I have pics SOMEWHERE!

im good with graphics so i made a quick demo of what it looked like.
