I have been toying with the idea of making a mini dump bed for my garden tractor. I have a 3x5 cart with four wheels, that I tow around. I would like it to dump. Instead of hydraulics, I'm thinking 12v scissors Jack. It has the up down controls already. It strong enough to lift a truck up. What do you think? I'm trying to find some plans that would work, if I scaled them down.
Any input?
