    Maybe, the first quarter of the thing is a hydraulic arm that you lower to the ground and dump clippings into and then raise to dump into a build in storage hopper. The other 3/4 is a normal flatbed with a Ramp/tailgate. They advertised in Turf mag. a while back in the back section.

    Found the answer to my own question, any of you guys ever do that? Anyway had one of my friends looking to and he found it. They were made by Hughes Man. but were recently bought out. The website is dumpandgo.com CHECK OUT THE VIDEO TO. I think you could really be profitable with one of there Dump/trailer systems.

    In the past I had only considered "bag" type collectors. The hopper type were nice and convenient but where did a man dump them? On the ground or on a tarp? That seemed like alot of work to me so I chose to empty 2 or 3 bags instead, up untill now. This system changes everything! :dizzy:

    They are built very well and I have had no problems other than a few minor little normal maintenance things.I am sure you have seen the pictures I have posted under ultimate lawn truck.Feel free to ask me any other questions yu might have.I would highly recommend this truck.If you do get one I would recommend going with Isuzu and going with the nqr not the npr model.The nqr is heavier.
