    i just picked up a "Workhorse Load Lifter" dump insert (identical to Dump-Pro) for $500. now i know i said they are junk in an earlier post, and still hold that opinion, but i priced the EZ-Dumper and found out that freight alone is going to cost me $900 and i have to drive 100 miles one-way to pick it up. i thought this would make a good temporary dump until i can work up the cash to order an EZ-Dumper. i figure that the Workhorse will pay for itself in no time with the time saved, and when i do get a hydraulic insert i should have no problem re-selling it at the same price... i hope.

    Where did you get it? How old is it?

    i actually bought it from my old boss, it has to be at least 6 or 7 years old, maybe older.
