    Im curious how most of you are dumping the grass clippings from your walker and getting them into your truck... If youve put a ramp on the front of your trailer please tell me the good and bad as I think im going this way in the spring. Please post pictures if you have them! cant wait to get feedback:usflag:

    I have an electric dump unit and when I hauled clippings I would dump next to the truck and fork them in with a manure fork. It sounds hard but is quite fast and easy.

    Thanks for your input, I have a hydraulic dump insert in the truck bed...really thinking about modding my trailer with a front ramp that way I can back mower right into truck bed and dump. Just want to see if anyone has any other easy ways of doing timely

    your going to be using tarps or pitchforks to load it unless you build a gate
    the easiest way if using a trailer is build a container 4' tall from the front of the fender to the rear of the trailer and add a side gate and a little extra width to the front of the trailer to park the mower sideways . simply dump the grass in the rear part and fork it higher if you need it . fork it out at the end of the day .

    I used to use the dump inserts walker sells. I now have the hi-dump option. But the dump inserts works o.k If you back up the walker on the trailer and get close to the tailgate you can unload the dump inserts into the bed of the truck. I always put a tarp down on the trailer and then back the walker on top of that before opening the rear door.

    How do you like the truck craft dump insert? I was thinking of buying one for my pick-up. Thanks

    The one I am looking at is a scissor lift used model old truck craft model. Is there a big difference. I was curious about that? Any thoughts? Also, I can send pics of the dump bins if you never have seen them. Thanks

    I bought a different walker this winter. This one has an all seasons high lift on it. Yesterday was my first day of really using it and I love it! Have a couple electrical issues I'm still working out, but I think I'm gonna be real happy with it.

    We have a six foot wide oxlite arched aluminum ramp from trailer into the back of our 1 ton dump.
