Found this dump cart at my local dump at the metal recycle bin. Couldn't pass it up. Needs a tire and the metal is thinned out neart the top with some small holes.The wife doesn't know I brought it home as the inside house honey do list is looming large!:o

Great lucky find! I have one in the Radio colors amd plan to give it the Simplicoty look some day when the boy is old enough to understand he's "working" with Dad.

I welded the spindles in place on a front axle from a 7117. Added the contractor wheel barrow, and a trip lever from a variable tractor. WOW I have hauled some loads. I also put a regular trailer receiver on it. You will love it. http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=110841&SearchTerms=cart

Hey thanks Josh. It was one of those...welders out, what can I weld ideas. Once I started looking at it I got into it. I had to move some clay that I was digging drywells and tired of wheelbarrowing it. The simplicity cart was overloaded and a pain to shovel out. This one did the trick. I even filled it to the point I had to air up the sovy tires hard so they did not come off the rim. It did the trick. One of these days I will paint it up. It was just some spare parts, an old trailer tongue, and my parents wheelbarrow after the handles rotted off. Sometimes things just work out!

Thanks guys! Did the wheel barrow tires make the cart ride to low? I proably have to reinforce the cart edge were it has thined out and rotted. Obviously someone left it full of crap for a few years in the dump position. I already restored an old Sears dump cart which I have adapted the tongue to fit a ball hitch but you have slide out the back panel before dumping. The guys at the dump told me that the lady who got rid of it tied it to here bumper and dragged it down the street to the dump. That must have been a site!
