    IMO if you are doing existing lawns it causes more damage to the area being worked on. Also, it accumulated trash from all the neighbors if left over night.

    It would work, but I rather have a regular dump, but whatever will work for you! And I totally agree with the trash, leave that anywhere and people will find it to dump. Thats what they do...

    There is a guy around here who uses a brand new Freightliner truck (FL70 I think)with the bed than comes back and down, not just down, like a roll off truck, but all he hauls is one Exmark TT WB, thats it? That big of a truck and only using one WB..hmmm? I dont think ha has that many acconts, so Im not sure why he bought that type of truck? and he uses the freightliner as a daily driver too, I see him at the grocery store and out other places all the time and he is always driving that huge truck! One of these days, Im going to talk with him and find out why

    i think they are great idea. thought about them a while back but decided it doesn't fit my business plan but i could see how they could work well for others.

    One downside I know from a friend who has one is when he has a heavy load and it rains at the landfill it is a bear to back up through the muck.
