    I thought of an idea today while talking with a friend. We both were wishing there was an easier way to dump wet heavy debris (be it grass, mulch, whatever) What if you could rig up something like they use for the garbage cans, where it has the hooks that pick up the can at the handles then drops it over into the bed. Think of how much it would save your back! Anyone have something similar to this that you have seen or heard of? or even use???

    I say this because I hve to bad discs that are being worked on, gotta find something to save the back!! All you youngsters out there TAKE CARE OF YOUR BACK!!! you only have the ability to bend over so many times in a lifetime.

    There's a crew here with a fancy trailer that does EXACTLY that. Has a small dumpster on the side while they're working. They dump their walkers into it. Then a hydraulic lift takes it up into a container on the front of the trailer...

    Get a Toro Dingo. It can accomplish a lot of tasks. It's worth the money.

    They bought theirs used, but I think these people manufactured it:

    In fact, looking at their site, this photo is of their exact trailer.
