    You guys with dump inserts with side boards. How do you get the grass from your mower to the insert? I have a Ford PU and I have a hard enough time getting the grass to the center of the truck when its almost full. I can't figure how I would effectively get use of all of the space there. I wouldn't be able to reach the center front of my PU - any thoughts would be great.

    Maybe a small step stool or step ladder??? I have a dump insert with 2 foot sideboards. When the bed gets close to full I throw the bags up in the bed, and then climb up to empty them. I can also stomp the clippings or leaves down while in up there to make room for more.
