This is rather neat, to say the least.  It sure beats the heck out of a golf cart.

Someone took a Cub Cadet and turned it into a dump truck.

What does the lifting though?  Is that a fan behind the hydro?

I was wondering that myself.

 

Gotta say it's well done, and is probably right handy.

Looks to me like the driver does the lifting.

Its all grunt work there I believe. 

 

Not a cheap character, either.

Looks like a sundstrand hydro with the stock fan removed and an electric one mounted.  A nice build but surely needs a hydraulic lift. The turning radius would be mighty large.

The buyer must own 40 acres..................So you can turn it around.

I like the idea but I would change a few things... first being the lift, it would be hydraulic. Second, it either needs a bench seat or dual buckets.

 

If neither of my GT-14's sell that is the plan for one of them... man I wished I had as much time as I do ideas...

Darn it now! I was all set to chastise you all and remind you that Gravity was invented long before Hydralics.

Gravity Dump was common on golf course dumpers.

But he has the hinges too far back for a gravity dump.  I like it but would like to see more myself.
