Here is what I am starting with.
A troy bilt walk behind vac, chipper.
and a old boat trailer.
I have removed the tounge off the boat trailer and also removed the bunks that supported the boat.
I am going to move the rear cross member forward to right behind the rear spring mount. Here is a rough drawing of the design.

Right now the designed hopper is 295 gallons, approximately 46 Cu ft. I am a little worried about how difficult it will be to tip the hopper to dump it. Also my friend plans to pull this with his zero turn I hope it wont be to heavy and kill the tranny in his mower.
