    I may have this figured out....hauling mulch.

    Picked up a couple of totes from a place giving them away. I cut the tops out and took them to a place selling mulch by the scoop. It took two scoops to fill them and when I get them home, I'll take them off with the forks. No spill, no waste, no expensive dump trailer.

    How do you get the mulch out of the totes? Last time I just had them dump it my pick up bed but it does make a mess and then I had to shovel it into my end loader from my truck.

    When I pick them up with forks, I strap them to the headache rack. Then I can go to where I need to dump and tilt the forks forward. A little mulch will stay in the tote, but it's easy to get out. I don't have to clean out the truck bed, and I don't waste the mulch.

    Nice. I wish they would give them away here... Seems everyone wants $50-100 each for them.

    You guys need to come down and vacation at the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and Gatlinburg and I'll fix you up with a tote to carry home.
