There is a bend in the front.
There is also a bend in the back, they should both straighten out pretty easily.
I knew this was a dump trailer, but I didn't know how it locked. It has a thread-less bolt welded to the bed frame and a nail going through it. I already replaced it with an R-pin. When I first took the nail out the tilt was a little stiff but it freed right up after moving it back in forth a few times.
The hitch is a little strange. The twisted piece of flat stock moves up and down between the two pieces of angle iron. I dont know if its supposed to do that, or if the bolt going through it is supposed to squeeze the two pieces of angle iron together to hold it in place.
Here is a pic of the rot on the tires. When I looked at it last night, they didn't look that bad. Lol.
There is a funny story along with the delivery. The person who shipped it couldn't find out which house was mine. He stopped at my neighbors house, the delivery guy asked if he knew where the address was. My neighbor said he didn't know what house it was but it had to be a few houses up or down the road. The deliverer said he was supposed to drop off a yard trailer for some tractor. The neighbor told him "I can guarantee you is that house over there then." And pointed to my house. LOL! I am aware that the neighbors know what I do, but I didn't think it was that obvious!
