    Anyone familiar W/Dump Pro? It's a heavy duty plastic dump insert that operates with a winch and cable. Can be removed quickly and stored.
    Looks sort of light duty but may have some applications.

    Here's the site. http://www.dump-pro.com/pgs/prods/products.htm It looks pretty cool, but I wonder what the price comparability is compared to something like an EZ Dumper. Also, I'm not sure how sturdy it would be as far as lifting capacity.

    I like it, nice and light, the change out is cool to.

    but the price seems a bit high, for just alittle more i could get an EZ dumper.

    Looks real cool but I would like a 6-foot bed version as well as the 8 since I have both in my fleet and emptying grass clippings can sometimes take a half an hour.

    It sure would be handy for salt. You could buy bulk and not have to handle bags. I would much rather shovel material that 1/3 the cost than to be handling those bags again. This, combined with being able to use it for other things, makes it attractive.

    Um for $890 you can get a kit from northern tool that turns the bed of your truck into a dump bed.

    Joe, I demoed this unit at Expo, and was pretty impressed by the ability of the dumper. The first thing I didn't like was there is no pockets for stakes / sideboards, but Mark told me they are making a kit that will retrofit all of their units. It is constructed of heavy gauge steel, but with a channel frame, it weighs half or less of other similar dumpers. Mark told me they weighed an EZ Dumper in at over 900#, and I think this one weighs about 385-400#. It cycles in less than 30 seconds at a +60 degree angle. Very cool for clippings and such.It's rated for 3000#, and believe me, I don't think the tubwould ever crack, it's pretty tough stuff.BTW-It will also hold water, could double as a 20" deep pool at the end of the day :p
