Old Truck Dump Trailer
"We cut the frame off in front of the dump bed and welded a gooseneck hitch to it. A 7 hp. Briggs & Stratton motor powers the hydaulic pump. We added a jack shaft to boost power and reduce rpm's going to the pump.
"We have only about $600 total in-vested in the dump trailer and we were able to sell the transmission and other parts from the truck to help offset the cost. The trailer works great. The best part is that you don't have cost of license tags, antifreeze, clutches and other things that we'd have with a truck."
