Tipping mulch without a tipper

Recommended Posts

So does anyone have any sneaky tips on tipping mulch without a tipper truck. Basically I have an open back high sided truck without a tipper and was thinking someone must have a better idea than shoveling it out! back braking to say the least!

A Loadhandler if you have/can arrange a horizontal tailgate for unloading?

 

It wouldn't be good for full loads probably (too much weight) but for lesser loads perhaps a winner.

Secure a heavy duty tarp with strong eyelets to the bed of the truck at the tailgate and run it along the bed and up the back wall. Chip onto it. When you want to empty it tie a strong rope to the tarp at the back (cab end) of the truck and tie the other end to a strong anchor point such as a tree behind where you want to tip. When you slowly drive forward the tarp should pull the load off the bed. Or
