I use a dumpbed truck. Yes I think you are underestimating the weight of grass clippings. Granted my bed is larger than a std. 8' truck bed but I have had 3,500lbs of GRASS in the bed, in one day, sometimes not even a full day, and sometimes I can fill the bed in one stop at a HOA. Point is, you aren't going to be dragging a tarp out or lifting a "box" out by hand if the bed is more than 1/2 full, and that's not much grass. I know of some that use plastic 55 gallon barrels, but those really get to heavy to lift safely when full of grass. The load handler is a good option for a std. 8' truck bed though. I used one for several years, and still have the first one I bought. It dosn't get everything out but it gets 90% of it, though sometimes you may have to really work at it to get it to roll up!
