Got my show transportation sorted out yesterday. Took a few pics. Can't resist showing the JD, Cub, Bolens and other make enthusiasts how a dump cart really should work. No residue stays in these!!! Best design of a dump cart ever. Couldn't resist braggin' just a bit!!.....Dave

I guess that makes up for not having a pretty Hood and Grille on the tractor?  :poke:    :D

Yes, but how do you get the thing tipped back over and ready for another load. Looks awkward to say the least.

Brian; tips back very easily with one hand. They are a well engineered and balanced unit. I have a common box store unit I use behind my BigTen because I don't care if it gets scratched or dented. It is harder to tip and clean out by far. Don't be fooled by this one appearing to be a solid four sides. I just didn't tilt or remove the tailgate when I took the picks..Dave.

Now that's a dump trailer! That is the first one I've ever seen that the bed completely dumps over,whoever designed it sure knew what they were doing. Thanks for sharing it with us! :thumbs:

That is a very unique dump cart.  

I see that it even has brake shoe pads that can be pushed against the tries to keep it from rolling.

Does it have any tag on it as to who manufactured it ?

JD Crawler; The cart is made by Simplicity. They made this style with the long tongue and seat for the walk behinds and the same design with a shorter tongue for the 4 wheel GTs.The brakes are on the carts for the walk behinds because they have ratchets in the wheels and no engine braking on a down hill slope.....Dave
