Yea you have a good bit of a work load. Sounds like a 3rd person to me.

Yes I need a dump trailer. I use a load handler in the back of the trucks and if the trailer is full of debris I've built a large pallet out of 4x4s and just hook the tractor up and pull the pallet out along with te debris. I've been shopping for a dump trailer. Also a dump insert. Eh, we'll see what i decide here in the next couple weeks. Thanks for asking though.

I went back and looked and the few mowing pics i found were stripe from either the Kubota or the Exmark. My Lesco however does lay down some nice stripes.

Dump Insert

We use an Isuzu NPR Dump in the spring for clippings...holds a ton...plus for any kind of large pruning job its awesome....as for the rest of the season...a Dodge 2500 with a Truckcraft aluminum dump insert....for our weekly mow routes this works great once the spring green up slows down...its lightweight...doesnt rust....and so much easier to unload...with the sideboards on it will haul 3 yards of mulch....altho there again for large mulch jobs we use the Isuzu...dump trailers are nice...but if you have small areas to get back into a truck is a lot simpler.
