    How should I move clippings without a pickup truck? It will only be for about 6 months, until I have enough capital to afford one.

    believe me, I am opposed to the idea as well, but I have no other option. I think putting a tarp down might work?

    How are you transporting your equipment?

    I think your best bet would be to throw a tarp down on the trailer and just pile it on there....When unloading it you'll probably have to pitchfork it off, but if it's light enough you might be able to slide it off.

    Yeah so long you have a trailer it's no big deal.
    I don't use a tarp, the stuff's so dang heavy anyhow...

    I usually shovel it out with a pitchfork, use a wheel barrow to transport the stuff.

    Thats true...it usually gets so heavy you won't be able to use a tarp to pull it off...the only reason that I would use one is so you don't get stank grass all stuck to your trailer.

    It looks like you pull a small trailer with your zero turn. The only thing that you could do is pull a bigger trailer, or pull a second trailer behind your other one. You won't be able to put much in it, though.
