    I was wanting to see everybodys trailer setups that bag grass. I have a 20ft trailer and run 3 zs and most of the time I run out of room for grass on the trailer. Im either going to get a bigger trailer or figure something else out. If anybody has pics please share.

    Get a dump truck. We run 2 Walkers and fill up a truck evey day. If we used a trailer it woud have to be 40' long.

    We use the dump bins right now or just dump and scoop into truck if it's wet and heavy.
    I was thinking about getting high dumps put on my new ones we are getting this month.

    Dump truck here too. 1 Ton w/ 8'x 12' bed. 2' high sides. and still wish I had more room a lot of days.

    I use a walker with the dump bins too. But I get them into the truck reguardless of their weight. haha! I can tell ya, cutting not a lot off, on a dewy morning, will PACK that hopper. I'd guess those bins weigh over 100 lbs each. I also have a grasshopper with the 3 bag catcher. Bag type catchers are the easiest to work with/dump into a truck.

    We have a box truck to hauls mowers and a 14 ft dump trailer with 6 ft sides holds around 18 yrds. We fill it everyday during cleanups.
