Bill, it's going to be hard enough to build a one-of-a-kind, much less two or more. I lack serious tools to start an assembly line.

Never thought you'd need to add on to the garage addition, did ya? LOL

There are some fantastic ideas in here! Re: the Simplicity Pic, I would think a load of gravel would make a real man out of you. Or put you in the hospital.

I'm glad folks are adding their ideas and pics. Gives me things to ponder, they are all pretty neat in their own way. It'll be fun to get started on mine.
I added a mast to it for the cable. Contemplating how to run the cable over the top of it.

Slowly, I am getting things figured out. Hardest part of the build will be making the lift pieces, keeping the pivots square with the pipe. Probably make a jig for them.

How about mounting the winch in front of the mast on the tongue and use a HD garage door pulley mounted on the the top of the mast this way there would be equal out some of the tension on either side of the mast , Al

Al, you are thinking along the same lines I am. I figured to mount the winch off a mast brace to the tongue. Pulley is being thought thru. I can get a 3" cast iron from McMaster-Carr, possibly a couple of bearings for the shaft so it will turn freely. Probably a 3/4" shaft? I don't want it to bend. May have to add something to make sure the cable stays in the pulley. I also need to figure out some thing that turns at the front of the bed so the cable doesn't wear.

I got the name wrong for the pulley location. It's Surplus Center. OOOPS!

I was thinking something like this , but it's only rated at 200lb so maybe not strong enough.

That's only for 1/4" cable, I have 5/16" on my winch. How about this:

If I use an 1 1/8" shaft for this, the left over could be used for the 3-point on the Ford. Hmmmm!

Kenny, I've been back through this thread again because I am building a leaf vac trailer and will need to have a good way to dump a full load of chopped leaves. Will post a design once I have it finished.

Thanks, Chuck. The more designs, the better the end result will be for anyone who endeavors to build one. I will be using mine more for dirt/gravel, so looking to make it stronger.

One of those pulleys with a bronze bushing would be a better choice , Al

while not dirt or rock my hopper I am designing is 46 cu ft, which will be packed full of grass and leaves. I think that will end up being enough of load to not want to man handle it to dump.

This has been an interesting thread!! Thanks to all so far, here's my two cents. Hoping this may help others to understand the tilt dump function on a simplicity style dump cart:confuse::

Locked down
Posted Image


Lock released, pivots at axle
Of course the force to achieve the initial tilt after releasing the lock depends on where you place the load as with any trailer.
Posted Image


Posted Image
dump box pivots back from frame to stand upright or continue all the way over( would of done that if I had not had the sides on)
Posted Image

Posted Image
It can be tilted as shown (with no sides) and slowly backed up to the point the entire box flips upside down. :smile1:

Hope this helps everyone understand the concept of these, they work pretty slick and may help you all with your designs, hopefully preventing some of the dreadful :wallbanging: we all run into sometimes.
Greg
