    Does anyone have a web site where i can get the removable bins for the walker dump?
    We have been dumping to tarps, but want to give the removable bins a try.

    walker sells them for about$200, they are only for the large 9.5 bushel hopper however. They work pretty good for leaves, when full of grass however they are a bit heavy tho. Also they are not a perfect fit so that when u open the door to unload them grass/leaves spills out and some is also in bottom so u have to dump whats left in the catcher to be able to put the bins back in.... and either put a small tarp down or vacuum up after

    The bins are an OK option. In fall leaves fill them up to fast and they become a real pain because you are opening the hopper and dumping them everyother pass. Like it was said not everything makes it into the hopper so you open the door dump the two then put one of the bins parallel to the hopper and dump the excess debris into the bin. So realistically you are dumping 3 bins. The grass does get a little heavy during spring when its lush but it just biulds lower back strength.

    What do you want them for? I've never really seen a use for them unless you have to dump into a truck bed (thought I have never used them myself).:waving:

    I just use a couple of garbage cans to empty into, then dump into my truck, takes like 3 min, then I'm back mowing. The bins to me just take up room in the hopper and I'm thinking would be heavy in the spring with the lush grass.
