Good news. I put 440 lbs. (my Son and I) on the front of the bed and it lifted us with no problem. He was able to stiff arm one of the rafters and stop it with both of us on it. Didn't load the engine so I'm thinking the by-pass in the hydro is opening. I'm guessing it will dump anything I plan to haul. Takes 3 1/2 seconds to go from horizontal to almost vertical. Much faster than I ever imagined. I will try taking a video and post it here. I may need some help. Hint hint.


That's great. Remember, you'll be adding, about 100lbs of dead load by the time your done.
Maybe you should fiddle with the relief valve now, as it may help you determine how much dead load you can add.

Hey, I could play it on QuickTime, but not put on youtube, so I just played it on my PC and took a movie of it with my camera! I forgot to turn my sound higher for camera to pick it up good.

.....

Way to go Daniel, if there is a will there is a way.

Chris, that works really well. Is it that fast WITH the load or just when it's empty?

Yes. I really appreciate Daniels help!
Now I'm going to see if I can find some software to convert "quick time" to a normal format.

Nice! The video shows a steeper angle on the cylinders than the pics did. Looks great. Fine job!

Alan has a software program that converted it to .mpg. So here's a better video.

I'll give it a try.
Thanks for your help!

I just thought that I would add that the speed in the last video would be more representative of full throttle operation. Low throttle cycle speed is about half that.

If the speed of the lifting of the cylinders is too fast, you could install a flow control valve like the one that is installed on some of the hydraulic wire winders. It has a handle that you can adjust to allow the speed to be really fast or it will restrict the flow so you can dump at a slower rate of speed.

I was going to install a metal deck but now that it has been confirmed that the bed goes almost vertical I'm going to use plywood. I don't like the way things slide all over on a metal deck. I can always change it to steel later if desired.
Today will be priming and painting the bed frame and some other small stuff. I really wish I had a 12hp. Kohler to install in this as it is one of my favorite engines.

Wood would be much quieter too. An empty metal deck might be noisy with the engine at higher rpm's. It can vibrate & make some funny frequencies sometimes.
