Handy Dumper Does Double Duty
The 4-wheel Barrow Dumper from Lapp Welding is designed to do double duty. Release the hand pull handle, and a clevis end is revealed for towing behind an ATV, garden tractor or even a pony.
  “It works great for hauling mulch or cleaning out stalls but you can also use it as a temporary livestock watering tank,” says Steven Lapp, Lapp Welding. “It’s heavy gauge aluminum, but still lightweight.”
  The wagon comes in three sizes – 6, 9 and 12 cu. ft. – with a maximum capacity of 2,000 lbs. on the 12 cu. ft. model. Sizes vary from 25 to 30 1/2-in. widths and 47 to 60-in. lengths. The smaller Model 1000 ($315) has a 10-in. depth, while the Model 1027 ($340) and Model 2000 ($418) are 13 in. deep. A pony shaft is an extra $67.
  Four different wheel options are available including smooth rib, heavy-duty saw tooth, turf tires and flat-free solid poly tires.
  The wagon has a beveled rear end that extends well past the rear axle with a support system that allows for two-stage dumping. Release the latch, and lift the two handles on the front end. The center of gravity shifts making lifting easy.
  In the first stage, the beveled end rests on the ground. Lift the tub farther, and the box pivots back on the top rear edge to empty out completely.
  Lapp says the wagons are easy to clean between jobs and are available with a hand brake for parking loads.
