I have been doing it this way for seven years now. This way has freed up $$$ to purchase other equipment such as: New Skid Loader ~ New Back Pack Blowers ~ New mowers ~ Trucks ~ Snow Blowers[/FONT]

Yes that is a tarp, doubled up! Cables bolted to the floor, crawling underneath the tarp....ready to be connected to the chain.

That looks really cool. I wold love to see a picture or video of the tarp outside of the trailer to see how you set that all up.

It seems like a sweet set up.

That's awesome man! I've been thinking of doing something like that cause I don't have a dump at this stage in the game and it takes forever to pitchfork my box out.

Like Steve, I would love to see it set up before the leaves. Great idea!

What about using an old rug or carpet it may hold up better

IDK about a rug, but I know I only go through one tarp per clean up season..That would mean Fall & Spring

That's awesome! Hopefully next year I'll give that set-up a shot!

I would have had this video sooner for ya Steve, but it has been raining all day here. Plus I had a full load to dump prior to shooting this.

That is brilliant! It seems this design gives you the greatest bang for your buck.

If you could remake it now, would you do anything differently?

Thanks Man!
I too used to rake all the leaves and grass out of the trailer and just loathed it. So basically I had to either by a dump or figure something out and this is what I came up with.
I'm certain the day will come when I do not use this contraption anymore, but am very satisfied with the results.
