Dump trailer log arch / winch setup
« on: November 04, 2018, 09:32:16 PM »
I just finished up modifying my dump trailer with a 13000lbs winch and log arch. Just sharing some photos and video for everyone.

I love it . A great use for a dump trailer. I had a small mowing business and have a 7x12 dump trailer that would be a great project to do. My trailer has a full width landscape gate so to keep from hitting dirt the log could be winched up blocked and rolled right into the trailer with no lifting.

Nice job and welding, too. What are the dimensions of the steel in the arch? How easily does it disassemble?

I used 1.5 x 3 tubing and has a .25 wall thickness. Removes by pulling 4 pins. Its removed fairly easy but it dose have alittle weight to it. I can lift it into place myself. Better with 2 people tho.

Does your dump pump have the guts to dump a trailer full of logs?

Yes it will lift a load of logs with ease.  The trailer uses a scissors lift and is rated for 20000lbs.
