    I don't have much of a problem getting rounds out of a truck, But, I use a '88 S10 which has a much smaller bed. I could put one to good use though, that and a cant hook maybe....

    MrWhoopee, you will wonder why you didn't do that sooner.

    A machete with a long square tipped blade is my choice for this type of work.

    For pulling out small stuff from the trailer my ,.home made log rite hookaroon wasn't doing the job , I tried a steel rake, tines to short , then, I picked up one of these Ames 4-Tine Cultivators $16, works great ,also use it for gathering up pieces while pole cutting, ,raking in tight places , like leafs between bushes.

    No reason that would not work well, even for moving the small limbs out of the way.

    Mine has a 4' handle, truck is 8' bed....with tailgate down I guess it's up to 9' to the bed wall. Now I only have to get into the bed once for unloading, sometimes wish I had a 5' handle! Soooo much easier unloading now! Haven't used it or any of my other tools this summer but pulled out the saw this weekend to remove a small tree on our lane and now the itch is back!!!
