Cub cadet dump bed

I'm getting ready to take a 105 cub cadet and streach the frame and add a dump bed to it. I'm looking for ideas at this point. Does anyone have any pictures of something like this. Any input would be great.
Thanks
Andy

Re: Cub cadet dump bed

Well I got started on the 105 dump bed today. WOW!! This is the first time that I've had to work much on a narrow frame. I like the wide frames much better. I gurantee one thing that when this goes back together it will be more like a wide frame than a narrow. I'm planning on making the tunnel cover come off for one thing. The plan is to stretch the frame about 3 feet and add a hydraulic dump bed. I think that I'm going to look for a doner narrow frame for the stretch. Does anyone know if the 100 has the same frame? I think that I have a 100 frame at my dads place. Thanks, Andy

Re: Cub cadet dump bed

Well I made some progress on the 105 dump truck today. I'm going to work tomarrow and going to bend the frame rails that I need to fill in the gap. I should have more pictures tomarrow. I'm streching the frame 38.5 inches.

Re: Cub cadet dump bed

Be sure to design for some flex, because it will! I would also want to allow ground clearance for the box when it dumps so that it will empty cleanly. I built a hydraulic dump and had to drag it to empty. This fall, I removed the box and moved it forward about a foot. The tongue was long enough for me to do that. Now I can dump with out dragging.

Qoute: How will you get power to the rear end? end quote


You could use a Case/Ingersoll transaxle and just run two hydraulic lines!
That would be my choice!

Re: Cub cadet dump bed

I think a tandem axle at the rear would look nice!

Re: Cub cadet dump bed

yea tandems would be awesome
Maybe put an dead axle out back just for extra load support and you get that cool factor

It shouldn;t be too tough to make it a live set of wheels if you can find an identical trans. If you where to make it a dead axle you could run the risk of low centering with the drive wheels off the ground. I've been planning to do a tandem axle, the search for a cheap matching trans continues.
