Drive Through Wagon Dump
To dump gravity box wagons on his farm near Rockford, Iowa, Henry Kalke, Jr., designed a drive-through wagon dump that's easy to use and portable.
The wagon dump consists of a tube steel frame with enough clearance for a tractor and wagon, and a ramp on one side. The ramp is lifted at both ends by cables running to the top of the frame, through pulleys, and down the side of the frame to a drive shaft which is powered by an electric motor. The ramp lifts the wagon high enough to dump 100% of every load, no matter what the moisture content, according to Kalke. His unit has been in use for 4 to 5 years. He's looking for a manufacturer for the wagon dump.
