    what else would you throw grass clippings in. for that matter what else would you drive being in the lawn business. sure you see a few hauling there trailer with an SUV but not many.

    i use a long bed pick up with a nice truck loader. one of the best investments i've made so far. fill it up drop the gate at the recycle center, crack the leaver and i'm gone.

    the load handlerer works ok it gets mostof the grass out theres always some to clean out but for the price you pay for one its probably ok I'm getting a dump insert this yr for my exsisting pickup instead of buying another truck trying to keep my multi vehicle costs down

    I can't share your opinion on this one.

    I only offer 2 ways. side discharging or bagging. when the grass is long enough it needs bagged anyway.

    sure mulching is good but there are to many variables to make it work and make it work good. it has to be dry and can only be so long.

    I can side discharge and bag any time. wet, dry, short or long.
