    Default Just built my tipping trailer

    Hi all over the last year or so that i have owned my tractor i have been wishing that i had a hydrualic tipping trailer to go with it.

    Well over the last 3 days i have built it its 7foot x 4foot with drop down sides and tail gate and a removable head board and corner posts so i can make it a flat bed

    All i have left to do is put the board in the bottom

    I connected it to the rear remote and lifted it tonight and just couldn't stop grinning ( i only just fitted the remote as well)

    Worked first time no leaks

    And best of all i only paid 」10 for the wheels and axle that i rescued from the scrap yard and 」50 for the hydrualic ram from ebay and the new hydrualic hose was 」18 and 」5 for the quick release connector

    Everything else i had kicking around so 3 days labour and 」83

    Plus the valves and parts to tap the tractor hydrualics but i will class that as a different project as it has a lot more than one use


    So in the morning if i can work it out i will post a few pics for you

    still grinning

    O.K. Fixit. You know the rules.

    No pictures - it didn't happen.

    Post the pictures so we can smile with you!

    Definitely more pics. I am hoping to make a trailer very similar. Did you have a plan drawn up? I will probably use more wood cause I don't have steel laying around but I was wanting to do it like yours with how you can make it a flat bed.
    Nice Job

    Good morning gentlement as promised i have taken a few pics this morning

    As you can see the tail board is made to pivot from the top or bottom so it will fold down or up so i can let material out underneth

    There are no plans for the trailer i just made it out of what i had it is the size it is as i used 2 of the sides from 14 foot trailer as you can see in the pics

    I don't use the sides that often on the large trailer so sharing them won't be an issue

    The tipping arrangement is a close copy from a trailer that my brother owns but modified to suit the ram i got from ebay

    So just the wheels the paint and a sheet of board for the bottom
    then it will be time to scratch it up

    Almost seems a shame to use it

    ps go easy on the mess the workshop is in

    Very professional build. Nice job. Thanks for the pics. I have an even bigger smile after looking at them.

    Are you a professional welder? Looks like it.

    About your "messy" shop. My wife longs for the day when mine will look as good as yours is now.
