Hi wiffysparks....yeah the Ecolawn hopper is higher than the dump to push it off the rear would not work.

Now I do what you suggested... I'll shovel out the rear, then lift the dump bed to move the compost to the rear, open the gate and start shoveling again. I use a 29" shovel and it fills the Ecolawn fairly quick. But I've seen adam.neusbaum use a shelf in his dump truck bed. So I was wanting something like that....but I don't want to wield or drill holes through my dump bed.

Adam said he can unload his dump truck in 1 1/2hrs. Me....depends on how much I have but its longer. Just wanting to speed up my "Loading" times.

I am slammed with a ton of yards to do....and when it rains here, the compost gets really heavy, so I have to wait for a few sunny days to get some of the moisture out of the compost.
