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!

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."If you build it, they will come!"

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 build it, they will come!"

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

I think i might be able to help. I built these for a company a couple years ago. I have really good pics but as far as i can tell they are too large to post here. I think this is the type of desing you are looking for.
