Hey guys, I thought of this idea the other day and ive thought it over for a while:
What if i take the c-channel frame from the widebody i have out back, slap a deck under it and set an opposed on the front, where the engine would normally go...but in the back, where the dash/seat/fenders would normally go, put a pretty heavy dump bed? Down the road there is an abandoned farm, and back there is a very light duty logsplitter with a tiny hydraulic pump on it. It is belt driven, by the way. My idea was to have this hydraulic powered dump cart that can haul a fair amount of weight (600-800 pounds tops) but also have it able to be a pull behind. I would make a quick remove deck, for when i just need the dump cart. It's main purpose would be for mowing ditchbanks and treelines. The bed would be handy for picking all the rocks and crap out of the ditchbank and putting them into the bed without having to pull a wagon behind the pull behind. I would likely pull this contraption with my sears or my murray...when they get finished. Any ideas on this?
