How Built Garden Cart
I think my home-built garden cart is the handiest trailer around. I needed something to move dirt around the farm. With most trailers, you have to load the back heavier than the front in order to dump them by hand. I can load mine heavier on the front for better weight transfer to the hitch, giving the added traction I need. To dump, I just pull a safety pin and jack it up like I would a floor jack. Even fully loaded my 6-year old daughter can dump it. The trailer measures 49 in. wide by 57 in. long and 12 in. deep. I'd like to find a manufacturer to produce it. I plan to put the same dump mechanism on a fifth wheel trailer for my pickup. (Roger Dierckman, Rt. 3, Box 287C, Sunman, Ind. 47041 ph 812 623-4104).
