    I hope I resized these pictures correctly to post. Anyway, I needed something to help load leaves and clippings. I have an enclosed trailer, so that rules out dumping it in the trailer or building a ramp on the front of the trailer to drive into the back of the truck. I didn't want the walker hi-dump, too expensive and limits it to the one mower. I kicked some ideas around and this was the one I went with. This project justified the Miller welder purchase over the winter.

    Very creative. Better than spending the money on a Dump and Go truck body.

    Very cool. If you haven't talked to a patent attorney yet, you might want to do it tomorrow.

    Awesome! Did you do all the fabrication yourself? If you did, it's amazing!
