Trowel, there are lots of good ideas in this thread. Depending on what you have available, you could build any number of ways. I am just looking for a use of the winch I bought this spring. And, since bringing home my 'big hoist on wheels', I no longer need it where it is being used now.

That's another good idea. I've seen something similar somewhere. Some tractor/trailer dumps work somewhat this way. Thanks.

After looking at this computer screen trying to get it to work right most of last night and today, I needed a break. So I got Sketchup fired up and added a little more to the drawing. For your viewing pleasure, here goes.

This is a fascinating thread and I'm hoping for a succesful build... so that I can copy it! On the original build, it's a great concept. I have just one concern on that type of scissor action. That is - what about when the top arm of the scissor is straight in line with the cable? That would seem to me to be the point where it would resist going up the most. Wish I still had my erector set from my childhood to test that out. Anybody got one? shouldn't be too hard to model. About the same concern for the one trowel just put up. Would be toughest leverage to lift right from the get-go and everything would need to be extra heavy duty because it's going to put a lot of weight on the tongue and tractor hitch from the wheels being so far back.

I got that mast idea kind of stuck in my head, though. Since you got a winch... And I understand that the mast would have to be tall, but what if you "leaned" the mast rearward or build it from the sides so that it's pulling from above the wheels instead of from the front?? lots of good brainpower going on, here. This will get done if you stick with it long enough...

Isn't sketch up wonderful?
Nice job Kenny, looks like you're down to finding the parts and mocking it up.
BTW, Why Blue? I thought you'd paint it to match that green work horse of yours.

Since Alan showed a bit of displeasure in the blue version, I thought I would make a RED
one for those inclined.

I added in the second set of lift bars. Figured out I need to rework the front lower frame, can't get the cable to lift the whole trailer. OOOOPPS!

I can do green and yellow! Might do each side a different color to go with my rainbow of tractors.

Kenny, Looks like it may be time to get out the metal and start building!
