Grass Dumping

I am looking for the most efficient manner to dump grass, etc. from my F250. I dump at least once a day and see many types in action. Any recommendations.

Dumping Grass

I put the hood of an old Import Car down inside my 14' Trailer, between the ZTR and the Walkbehind. When doing a customers yard I will drive back up onto the trailer and dump my 15 Bushel Grass Collector onto the Car Hood. (hood is upside down) I have dumped 9 Loads of Grass in my trailer before It starts getting too high. I then tarp the grass. When the trailer is full I bring it home and hook up the chain from the car hood to the ZTR Hitch and drag it off the trailer to the compost pile. Then I shovel off the hood onto the pile. Usually Take 15 Minutes with the pitchfork.

I was thinking about getting 2 hoods, bring the full one to the neighbours cows while I pick up the old one that the cows ate the grass off of.

Anything that falls off the hood while pulling it is hand balmed into a garbage can and dumped onto the pile.

I have a side ramp to get my Walkbehind on/off the trailer so the grass pile is not in the way of unloading.

Tarp in bed. Pull it off (needs a little work) but works great
