Does anybody have an original Brinly "sleeve hitch" dump cart? If so, could you get the "tub" measurements for me (length, width & depth)? I'm wanting to make a replica of one. I have the parts diagram, but need the dimensions.

Also could use the strap dimensions for the Brinly "Gard-N-Cart", would like to make one of those this winter too!

Thanks, grnspot110

OK.... I'll agree that getting actual measurements would be the most ideal way to go about these projects but what if that does not happen?

So, here are my suggestions.

In my opinion, both attachments are scalable because you have a known lawn tractor that is in the one photo.

I am providing you with a photo for the front carrier. If you want to know how high the grille is on a Case, I'll give you that along with the width. It should not be too difficult to figure out whether 2", 2 1/4" or 2 1/2" flat bar was used. Nothing needs to be heavier than 1/4" thick stock.

There are plenty of wheelbarrows around that use a pan that looks a lot like the one in that photo. It's easy to fabricate your own heavy duty hinge from cold rolled round rod and some black iron pipe. If you have a 3 pt hitch, then an A-frame plus a length of 2 x 4" x 1/8 wall tubing should be plenty strong enough. I think that you would want to have both on your tractor so that you could drop the front rack down and load it with items that would counter balance the load in the barrow.

I'd put the hinge 1/3 of the way back from the front of the barrow so that the stuff in the front of the barrow won't have to be lifted during the dump cycle. In fact, that weight will help you during the dump cycle. A small latch at the rear will make sure that the barrow does not dump accidentally during transport.

Mine will be mostly for shows, so I want them as accurate as possible! I think I have the measurements for the 'Gard-N-Cart', just have to find them.

As for using, I have plenty of dump carts (9 different JD models). ~~ grnspot110

Hydriv: If you don't mind getting that measurement (grill hgt) I would like to build a "close enough" replica at some point in the future & that would definately help.

I will get Jack to do that for you because he has his tractors in a warm place next to his bed. I won't go into the reasons for that because they are all XXX rated.

I wish you wouldn't laugh at him. It only encourages him to be more incorrigible.
