    Default homemade dump trailer

    here are some pictures of a dump trailer i built this winter. the axle is from a horse trailer and all the steel is from a buddy who gets it as scrap for me. the bed is 4'x 8' and 12"h the cylinder is 4"bore double acting. i figure i can haul 2 ton on it . hinged the gate at 24" high so firewood wouldnt get hung up. it works great for firewood. also made a toolbox on the front and the lid when open makes a good table to work on chain saws. gate uses pin to keep closed but i am going to put a double latch system like on a dump truck & hook it up to open & close by hydraulic cylinder. need to put steel sheet in floor yet and paint when it warms up.

    Nice set up. Tool box is a good idea. Sure like to have one for this spring but I'm just in the scrounging stage of that project.

    Let's have a look at the lift mechanism and how you mounted the dump cylinder.
