    So, you are looking at 30-plus loads. Pushing the gravel off manually with a rake is doable, especially on a "C" with dropsides. However....doing it for30 loads...no, thanks!

    Get an electric hoist installed! Otherwise it gets old, quickly.

    Well I was going to unload with my new holland l-425, First I was going to do some 2 wheel self unloading hijinks and then make a cut out in this one hill/slope then dig in some logs for a field expediant loading dock.
    Drive on, grab a half ton of gravel, go and dump where I need it, repeat.

    Though I have a big 4~ bore hydraulic clyinder laying aorund I was going to make my one trailer into a dump and never did so I could make a hoist for the bed and it would give me a reason for a hydraulic pump for a power steering while I'm at it.

    Yes, THAT is how things happen around here! Very nice score, by the way, says a fellow w/w and dropside owner!

    Completely agree with this statement!

    Congrats on the truck! Look around on the forums, there's a few guys who've turned their trucks into dump beds

    I hadn't thought about using the tires for retaining walls! Thats a great idea I'll need to make a thumb for my skid steer bucket to move around the 11.00-20" and other tractor tires that he stashed places but that should be hard.

    The transfer pump uses a "slow blow" fuse. Check applicable parts book TM 9-2320-209-20 for a part number. This is not Army unique so Auto Zone should have them. Don't make a move without the pubs: operator's manual, organization repair manual and parts book, and a lubrication order. A M35WOW has at least 31 grease points, four on the handbrake alone. The Army says a yard of gravel weighs 2970 pounds ( TM 9-2320-260-10 table 2-3) so you can load out a deuce for off road/unimproved roads with 2 yards. Overload it at your own peril, especially if you have to descend steep hills loaded. The brakes on these things are kinda cheezy at best so it is easy to overload them. The WW2 CKW dump truck had a bulkhead several feet behind the front of the body to keep the load to the rear as to not overload the hoist. These after market electric hoists will dump leaves but it will be easy to overload one with gravel. Better find a friend with a M817.
