3-Pt Dump Box
I made a 3-pt. dump box for the back of my Massey Ferguson 235 tractor that'll fit any 3-pt. Cat. I tractor. It started out as a 2-pronged forklift. I designed the box to mount on the forks. The box has a steel frame and wood sides and mounts on a steel shaft which allows it to pivot. I trip the box by operating a lever from the tractor seat. Afer I dump a load I start moving forward and drop the 3-pt. until the box locks in place. The box is about the same height as a pickup bed when it's all the way up and can be lowered to within 3 in. off the ground. I can move heavy objects from a truck onto the box, then let it down to the ground or visa versa.
When I want to use the forklift I simply remove cotter pins from the pivot shaft and remove the box. (Donald E. Feilbach, Rt. 1, Box 10, Piasa, Ill. 62079 ph 618 729-4491)
