Brian, I am going to hold off building until I get the 'tractor port' up. Then I will have more room to work on it. That is scheduled for right after the first of the month, depending on weather.

Kenny, is that the carport you got earlier this year? I had forgotten about that. It's a pretty big job if I recall correctly. I'd like to see the progress if you get a chance to do a thread on it.

Sure is, Brian. I am slowly finding new homes for all I have under the current lean-to in preparation for the switch.. Yeah, a thread would be good. Then you all can have a good laugh at what I have to work with. Just kidding!
I am currently redefining some of what I have drawn, as issues have arisen that I couldn't/didn't see before. That's why I like to draw out things, gives a different perspective.

? for any engineers out there. Which would be better to make the lift bars (what raises the bed for dump), 3/8" X 2" bar stock or 1 1/4"/1 1/2" black pipe? The black pipe is cheaper and easier to get.

Not an engineer but I think the black pipe would work fine.

Thanks, ducky. I was thinking the pipe would give more side motion support that bar stock won't.

Here is an update of the drawing thus far. I have changed the lift bars to black pipe, 1 1/2" for the lower & 1" for the two uppers. I have also opened the front of the frame for the cable to run through. Has a ways to go and I will probably change a few things yet, but it's looking pretty good.

I moved the lower lift attachment closer to the tongue, giving a better angle when it starts lifting. Here's a side view from DeltaCad.

That's all for now.

Gotta get the 'tractor' port done first. Lots more to do there. If I don't fill it up too quickly, I'll have lots of room for building this.

I know this will take all the fun outta the build but I have one o these and I think its the best of both worlds. It sits low enough to load without any problems [wheels outside the box so low and stable] and yet still dumps completely. It really does flip all the way over like in the pic.

But you still got to pick it up and dump it by hand right? Is it a handful with heavy loads?

Gtractor, neat dump cart. Probably works good with the two wheeler. I think it wouldn't work too well behind a GT. I don't quite understand how you start dumping it. Thanks for posting it.
