Here's the one I made up this winter, based on the picture from the brochure.
I didn't make it a dump cart, as it's small enough, one could just unhitch it and dump
it by hand. Oh, it was too cold to find any pumkins.


Lowell, that's coming along nicely.

Will, that looks like the correct load for your trailer. Just watch the glass doesn't break when you dump it!

Will I'm sure those are probably Molson's, but you could have used these in the interest of attempting to be accurate.

As requested, here is the finished frame:

HPIM3838 (Custom).JPG

The main straps are 3/16" x 1-1/2" x 32", the braces are 1/8" x 1-1/2" x 19-3/4". The bushing between the main straps is 2-7/8" w/a 3/8" bolt, trip latch hooks over this bushing.

Axle is 3/4" x 32-1/2", I'll be making a longer axle as the tires had rubbed the sides of the tub.

The adjustable hitch plate (set in the center holes until reassembled, may need to be re-set);

HPIM3839 (Custom).JPG

The trip latch (there is a small spring on the top of the trip latch;

HPIM3840 (Custom).JPG

Got the inside of the tub painted today, as well as painting the tires w/Miller's "tire paint"!

I painted the tires with Miller's "Tire Paint". Will need to repair some paint damage on the bottom from handling it too soon, after the paint has had time to harden. But it's finished in time for our show next weekend!

It'll be behind the 70 I.

Probably won't get much actual use, primarily be used for shows! ~~ Lowell

Lowell, I haven't seen the 70 for a while and it looks especially good with the cart behind it.

That looks like a great cart! You did a good job on it! Did you do a repower on the 70I?
