    We run a 3 man crew. 1pickup with trailer and 1 3500 dump truck. We can dump at 50% of our accounts but the rest of the walker clippings we tarp and put in the truck. We fill the truck every 2-3days

    Green Barrels!!!!!

    Jrs. has a pretty slick way to deal with the clippings....

    But for the normal dump truck set up (i have a f350 with a 10 ft. dump bed)

    You can fit one full Walker hopper into 2 green barrels and get it up and into the dump truck in less than a minute.

    Are the barrels heavy? Yup, But do you get used to and gain the muscle memory to get them up? Yup.

    And, if you put grip tape on the side of your dump like I do, you can hop on the tire then onto the grip and not even have to go in the truck.....

    Video of this technique coming this spring...

    I can't wait to see that video :)

    I'd make one for when I have to use trash cans but it wouldn't be pretty :(

    All we run are diesels, the last two gas mowers are backup walker's.

    I told my wife I wish I had a go pro........ hard to mow and video with my phone at the same time

    The decal was fading a bit so I painted it along with the 2500 badge in the sides with a old partial can of paint I had kicking around from years past. At the time I painted it I did not even own a Walker, but I do now.
