I have an old 5x10 utility trailer that was in rough shape, It was my fathers when he started out landscaping 35 years ago. As its to small for me to do much with and i have equipment haulers and a 6x12 dump i thought i would make this into a small dump trailer i could use around the yard. First i removed the floor, cut the side rails and the folding ramp off, Then removed 2' from the rear making it now 5x8. I added my top frame and hinges all is well so far.
I can't figure out a lift system. Id like to use a DC hydraulic power pack. Any dimension and suggestions as to what some guys have used would be extremely helpful!
Attached are 2 photos of where its at now as well as a lift mechanism I've seen but don't really know where to start.
