    Question I Need Ideas for Dump Box Design!

    I have a custom built flatbed on my truck, lately I have been tossing the idea of adding a dump feature to it. I have seen scissor type and hydraulic piston in the front. Does anybody have a good design they can share? I have an old Fisher plow for parts to cover the hydraulic motor.

    ANY help welcome!

    Thanks

    I did welding repairs on haulers similar to that in 1987. They were WABCO's (Westinghouse Air Brake), a 170 ton haul pack.
    The first time I saw one coming across the maintenance yard it looked like a dinosaur they're so huge.

    Question For The Love of GOD!!!!!!!!!

    Isn't there anybody that can give me a real answer?

    I just want to make a dump box for a 1/4 tonne Toyota pick-up! I built a flatbed for it and threw the box away. I know I can get a huge cylinder and hook it up front, but I can't figure out how to make one with a small cylinder in the middle with a scissor type lift.

    Go have a look at one.

    I have only built full-sized dump boxes with the hoist on the front. If I was going to build one like you want, I'd look at some that exist.

    If you have not already do so, try running a search on projects. There are several threads on dump trailers and converting truck beds to dump.

    Do a google search on trailer frame blue prints or do it your self instructions. I have seen some for dump trailers that include specs and suppliers for scissor dump systems. I'm sorry I don't have specifics but I have looked at these several times over the years. Good Luck, JEFF
