    Thought this one up myself. Might work on mulch but mainly just for tree branches and brush.

    Cool idea. What are you using to pull the chain?

    There's a guy that I know that has a similar setup to drag cut tires off with. He has a 8000 pound winch on the back of the truck, and the cable goes right under the trailer to the back and has a guide wheel on the rear and the cable comes up from the bottom of the trailer to the top of the floor and then on to the drag on the front. Push of a button, and here comes everything off the trailer

    It worked great, pulled everything out of the trailer and saved us 25 min of unloading time.

    Oh and you either hook the chain to a wheel loader at the dump or to a tree.

    I might attach the chain lower on the pellet so it pushes better.
