Got the Argon today. Most is finished welded. Just have to put the stake pockets on.

Sounds like the wagon is coming along nicely. Glad you got the gas today.

I'll get the stake pockets on today and a coat of the rust reformer. Then, depending on weather, it's paint the frame.

The wagon is coming along nicely! I've always wanted to build a hydraulic dump wagon, but never found the time yet.

Update! The stake pockets are on, paint is applied and it's ready for the wood. I just realized something today. I had built a small convex into the bed. That is a good thing. Once the wood is applied, it will have a bit more strength.

The wagon is coming along nicely! I've always wanted to build a hydraulic dump wagon, but never found the time yet.

I thought about that on this, but would need major structural rework for that to happen. With your tractors, you could probably go wider and longer with your dump trailer. Possibly a 5' X 10'. It would be nice to have it 4-wheel steer, let you in tight spots.

I love it when plans come together, especially when they weren't planed. Looking good.
What no Ford Blue?

I love that Ford, but this will be good colors for a change. Makes the Blue stand out more! I already have 2 Blue trailers. LOL

I don't have any yellow, but the bed boards will be Rustoleum Regal Red, That's what the tongue is. And, I'm sorry to say the yard was mowed with the MTD Ranch King. Had to take the deck off the Ford so I could use the box blade.

Yeah, yet another great wagon. I agree with switching it up on the color, too.

I'm glad I re did the front axle. It will turn pretty sharp now, probably won't go as sharp as a GT turns though. I'll have to hook it to a tractor and check. I was hoping to start cutting the wood side stakes today, but it's a bit damp for that.
