    Since I havent purchased a dump truck yet I am still loading grass clippings in the back of my truck. I have been laying a tarp underneath and then dump the debris on and fold the rest of the tarp over the top of the debris towards the back of the truck. Its a 8x16 blue tarp, but if theres not so much weight to the clippings and debris I can pull it out myself at my dump site but if its heavy i have to fork it out till its light enough. Now my question is if i had an anchor point what would you recommend i use for a tarp or canvas so i could hook a rope to the tarp and anchor point so that i could just drive the truck forward to unload it? I havent really found what the best tarp or canvas is by searching the forums but one guy said he ripped his canvas but recommended bulldog tarps? Anyways just looking to make my business more efficient, thank you
