Just thought you Guys May Like a Peak at my latest Backyard DB Fabrication. I've wanted to make this for a very long time, finally got it done and I'm very Pleased with how it works.
To be able to just walk over to this Cart & just USE IT instead of having to drag it out and Hook it up to a Tractor just to move one or two loads of material is gonna be very convenient & a great Time Saver.
So Here it is at Last.... My Homemade David Bradley Dump Cart...
Let me know what you think...

Looks good for hauling your firewood !! When you use it as a cart do you hook up a 2 wheel or 4 tractor to tow it ? Al

DanO, looks great. Bet that will make your life easier and with the wide stance, it should be pretty steady.
If you pull it with another tractor, you'd have to disconnect to dump right?

If you are by yourself and want to dump your load, how do you remove the front kickstand?

Well Guys, It's Not Perfect, YET,,,But Like all backyard Fabricated pieces of equipment, it's a 'Work In Progress" and so it has to Evolve by Trial & Error. Nothing Worth Doing Ever Comes easy.
Right now, The way you see it, For Hauling My Firewood from the woodpile to the Front door and unloading it, it has been Great. However I do see it's shortcomings with the kickstand, should I be working alone and having to haul & Dump Dirt, Mulch, whatever... and so i am presently working on a Spring Loaded Folding Kickstand that I can operate up & Down by way of a a Rod up to the Handlebars. I am also adding a Folding Kickstand to the rear as well. That should solve that problem i think. I Really Appreciate your input, Thanks
BTW, As far as hooking it up to a GT, it has been relieved of that Duty...I have other carts & trailers for that .

Nice job on the cart. I think your idea of the spring load stand on the front would be a real winner. Thanks for the post.

Nice way to use a old DB, very rugged and the grabber green is striking, looking forwards to the spring-loaded kick stand.
