 He could make that in anywhere from 2 hours, to 5 hours, if he had parts cut out.


Well, cutting the parts is part of the time consumption and must be included. Not to mention the design and layout time. If it were me, I would have 80 hours in that project :rolling:

I understand where you are coming from in the price, but there is waaayyyy more than 5 hours of work in this project and as Cat stated, if you build it, you can charge whatever you want. Not that you will get that price, but that is what American capitalism is all about.


I added the pics from the original CL add so they would be save once add disappears.

Whoever is responsible for this build it appears did a very nice job. I've been in the sheet metal trade for almost 25 years journeyman/fabricator for 20 years and am currently shop foreman of a residential, commercial, industrial hvac shop with the talk of price i was interested what the actual numbers on this gravity box would be this is what I came up with
Misc tubing fo frame $100.00
Paint decals $100.00
2 sheets 12ga steel $275.00
4 tires/rims $150.00
20 hours shop time $1700.00
Total $2325.00
If I fabbed as a side job -$1100.00 total $1225.00
That being said not really a terrible price IMO

We have in the area a major manufacturer of gravity/hopper wagons by the name of Unverfurth and I think they bought Killbros.


I thought this one was neat.
