Tractor-Mounted 3-Pt. "Dump Box"
The Mity Dump mounts on steel skids and comes with a mesh screen headboard and a 2-in. thick wooden tail board that can be removed for loading or unloading. The tailboard stores up against the headboard when not in use. The box is equipped with adjustable screened sideboards that can be set at four different positions depending on what you're hauling: straight up; at a 45 degree angle; straight out; or straight down.
A hydraulic cylinder dumps the box. A mechanical dump model is also available. "It's much handier to use than a trailer because it's so much easier to back up and maneuver. It also costs considerably less than most trailers," says Conway.
"To load the unit you lower the skids to the ground. During transport, the skids can be just above the soil surface if you have a heavy load."
Available in four different models. The smallest model measures 4 ft. long and wide and is recommended for tractors from 18 to 60 hp. The mechanical dump version of this model sells for $690; hydraulic dump, $740. The biggest model measures 5 ft. long by 8 ft. wide and is recommended for tractors with 100 hp and up. It comes with hydraulic dump only and sells for $1,885.
A pair of towable models are also available.
