    i was wondering if anyone is using the walker GHS, and how you guys manage the heap. Thought of using a front mounted leaf loader. . . or just giving up using walkers all together, lol. any ideas??

    High dump lol. Before that I used the dump bins, but they're frickin heavy. Not sure there is any good solution that isn't super expensive.

    High dump as well, I used to use canvas made bags but they are also heavy. The good side of that is that they were only about $35.00 and will last about 2-3 years. I am glad I got my high dump though.

    we use the lawn bags, you can hook them on the back of the walker yourself and dump it. if your strong enough your can also pick it up yourself and toss it in the bed of the truck. we used to just dump the box on the road and shovel it in the bed which was a really stupid idea. the bags made life easier. you can also try a garbage can. i know lots of guys that do that and i've tried it but i like the lawn bags better. much cheaper than a high dump for 2k

    Check out my thread: search Trailer modification and equipement pics... Just posted it today. I had a 50" ramp installed on the front of my trailer so i can ride the walker mower onto the trailer then into the back of the truck and dump the clippings. Also will work great for wheelbarrows full of soild nice and easy dumping:)
    Cost me $300 total to have it fabricated and installed
