Self-Unloading Trailer
"I made my own self-unloading wagon for collecting leaves and grass. It's used in combination with my 430 Deere tractor and the E-Z Rake lawn vacuum mounted on it.
"The trailer unloads in seconds, thanks to the self-unloading apron I salvaged from an old manure spreader. An orbit motor, powered by the tractor's hydraulics, powers it. To unload, you just open the back door and hit the hydraulic lever. Even with the box completely full, itself unloads with ease in a matter of seconds.
"As far as I know, no company makes a wagon like this for this purpose. The box itself is 30 in. wide, 48 in. high and 60 in. long and has a cover on top.
"If there's enough interest, I'd like to produce the trailer commercially, or work with an interested manufacturer in getting it produced."
