    How in the heck do you get the clippings into the truck? I want to build a fold down container on the side of my truck any ideas I want to run walkers only and 1 ztr. I love my new walker it just cuts so nice and man can it pile crap in that hopper. it took 3 tarp loads of leaves and turned them into dust! I don't want a high dump kit either my sides are to high.

    Get yourself a couple rubbermaid containers, and dump into them, then dump those into the truck.

    Try the 28cu/ft size "lawn-bags" that they sell at lesco.... they're the exact same thing as the walker bags that the dealer sells.

    They hold a full hopper perfectly and are pretty easy to handle into the truck.

    I'll pass, one of those loaded with 9.5 bushels of wet grass has got to weigh like 200lbs.

    We use the Walker plastic bags. A hopper full of green fescue is about 200lbs so you better have some help. Unless you are a BEAST!!!!!!!!:laugh:

    I would either get the containers that fit in the hoppers or get the bag to dump it in. I dont justify spending 3k on a high dump. And Kris i know i took your picture, only one i have haha.
