    How are you going to lift the bed to dump it?

    By hand. It's hinged just ahead of the front spring hangers. It works successfully with a load of firewood. The two bolts near the trip handle are to be secured for on road travel for safety. The trip handle can also be pinned shut.

    I wanted to keep it simple and not have hydraulics or anything to dump so I looked at some old farm trailers for inspiration. That being said, I will probably at some point add a small hydraulic cylinder and electric hydraulic power unit. Because I can't leave well enough alone.

    Nice looking trailer, looks most useful.
    The boy on the tractor makes a great picture, many happy memories.
    I loved driving tractors and working on stuff on my uncle's farm.

    When we bought the farm growing up, there was a old dump truck bed trailer with a hyd pump on the drive shaft to the axle. Personally I would have gone with a 5hp Briggs and a old power steering pump so it could dump in place.
