Gooseneck Grain Hauler
I wanted a way to move small grain from field to storage without using another tractor so I cut down a salvaged truck chassis, keeping the rear duals and springs. I used heavy-walled 2 by 6-in. steel tubing with steel plate reinforcing gussets to make a gooseneck that hooks up to a pickup. A hand-cranked jack holds the tongue up when the trailer's not in use. Lengths of 3-in. I-beam, clamped to the frame rails down each side of the truck help distribute the weight of the loaded gravity dump box. (Roger J.
