Progress with pics! Got the lower main frame all painted. Got all the grease zerk holes drilled and tapped. Painted the lift parts. Worked over the bed some. The front corners only had a cover on one side. Took it off and made some pieces that angled instead of the round of before. Look these over and have a great day!

Got a lot of sanding to do to the box. I beat some of the major dents out of it yesterday. I need to set into the frame again and see what holes can be plugged easily. I want to make a tailgate like a dump truck for it, but that may be next spring. I need to get some dirt moved real soon.

Kenny, too bad you've got to get it all dirty! It's looking real nice. Maybe you should line the box, or at least the floor, with some thin wood to keep from gouging it up with rocks and such. I built a wooden liner for the last cart I had and it still looked like new when I sold it.

Brian, I don't think it will see many rocks and such. Most all the dents were in it when I got it.

That's good Kenny. I had to use mine for crushed rock and for moving rocks that I "harvested" when digging holes or landscaping. Without the 1" pine box I had in it there wouldn't have been much left of it after a few years.
There was another thread here about an old JD cart a few days back. It had a top rail on the box made out of pipe. The tail gate hinged at the top and it used pipe elbows on the back corners of the box top rail to mate with a pipe on the top of the tailgate. It was a really simple and sturdy way to make a top swinging gate.

Yeah, I saw that. Pretty cool set up. Knowing me, I'll chose a much harder to build option.:bigrofl: I usually have some plywood laying around if I haul something that may dent it. Just cut some to fit..

I wonder if a pair of large barrel bolts would work. I have some large ones on my shed doors that have a bolt about 5/8" dia. There is a hole through the bolt for a padlock. You could use a pin through the hole if you needed to keep the bolt from accidentally sliding back. You could easily remove the gate by hauling back both bolts.

I'll ponder on that for a while. I need to get it put together before I can figure out anything, but the tailgate latch will operate from the tractor seat. I'm getting lazy these years.:bigrofl:

Kenny, use a 12 volt actuator on the gate, power open and close. Uses small wire (lower amps) and momentary reverse polarity switch, that can be operated from the seat lol.

Now that would be one cool and fun dump cart.
