    Any idea's on how to get grass clippings into my dump truck 62" high, besides using a shovel. i've found the wet grass gets too heavy to lift by hand. i tried a tarp and 2 clowns lifting but it was real heavy. thinking of putting a small crane up on the corner of the bed next to the tail gate to hoist a bag up and into the bed. Any of you have any ideas???? :confused:

    Me and a buddy fabbed up a ramp that goes from the trailer into the back of the truck. Just drive right into the dump, real easy. I'll get some pics later today.

    That's how it's done. All dump body set-ups, utilize their trailer, backing up onto trailer, and ramp into truck, dump, & out for another load. Most folks here use "Walker" mowers & that is the common procedure. Sweet set-up!

    I'm a solo op with a pick-up. Don't use a "Walker", & get rid of clippings in various ways, depending on the prop.
