Hi Adam,
I do the dump lifting to get more organic compost to the rear gates. I just didn't the third time....I was almost done and it didn't take too long.

That's the plus of have a dump truck compared to a dump trailer...the weight missing in the rear of my dump trailer can make it a little unsafe...not being able to evenly spread out the weight of the organic compost.

With your dump truck....the frame keeps everything in line....not so much with an uneven loaded trailer.

But I like your idea!

I am going to add sides to the dump trailer hopefully tomorrow...if it doesn't rain too much. Take them to my buddy's shop and paint the wood black, then in a day or two attach them to the dump trailer.

Then I'll take a few pictures with the Ecolawn Spreader attached to the rear of the dump trailer.

The weather is finally breaking into the 50 & low 60's and we've had rain the last few days....everything is starting to get "GREEN" now!!!!
