Build a Utility Cart With Dump Plans (The FeeJee)
These plans are for a utility cart with a dump function on the bed.
Handy around the poultry farm, the dairy barn, in the
feedlot and in industrial plants,
this capable midget dump truck
has the capacity for half-ton loads,
weighs 600 lbs. empty and has a
tread width of only 31 in.
air-cooled engine drives through
two standard automobile transmissions
hooked up in tandem,
thus giving a wide variation in
gear ratios for the heavy pulls. A
power-driven hydraulic lift, separate
foot brakes on the rear
wheels and a foot accelerator combine
to give a degree of control
equal to that of any standard dump
The narrow width lets the
midget through small gates and
feed-bunk alleys and its ability to
turn in its own length gets it
around square corners and into
and out of narrow driveways with
a full load.
Some departures from the design
as detailed are possible. A 3
or 5-hp. engine equipped with integral
clutch will save building the
spring-loaded clutch arrangement
shown. Where the going is fairly
level and there are no steep grades
to negotiate regularly, a 3-hp. engine
driving through a single
transmission will give satisfactory
Two types of side
panels are fitted to the platform
to provide three body types: a half
box, a flat bed and a deep double
With the sides removed the flat bed an be used to haul bulky
articles such as baled hay, lumber or large crates
With box-body half a ton of feed or fertilizer can be hauled.
Hydraulic cylinders hoist the body to the dumping position.
