Right now the plan is still shaping in my mind. I had read on a welding forum, one guy talked of using regular rod. If it gives a good bond, what's a little paint.

Sorry I have not responded sooner The scoop is 39 inches wide, 14 inches deep, & 14 inches high. If it is full of dirt it is more difficult to raise it & this will make the front end light, so weights are needed on the front.

That gives you around 550 square inches on the floor. What I was hoping for is over 1000. I need to think over this now. I want it 24" deep to haul a snow blower and wide enough to cover the tire tracks. Next thing I will have a scoop I can't use because it is too heavy.

Was starting to rethink this project last night. So this morning I went to check out the box again. AND IT WAS GONE! Some time over winter some prick needed it. At 200-250 pounds it wasn't easy to carry off. But it irritates me so much.

Figure somewhere around $30-40 at the scrap yard. Enough for a couple cheap joints. Now I am wondering if how much else grew a set of legs that I didn't find yet. This was in the back yard for a decade and no problem. Move it inside to be a project and it gets stolen.
