Here are some pics of a Deuce converted to a dump that one of my customers had done. The conversion cost him about $4800 complete.

I looked it over today and it looks REALLY good!!! He works the heck out of it. Hauls asphalt, wood and rock all the time. He has been using the front winch to pull 100' trees up out of the canyon. He is in the tree business and he is totally impressed by his new dumpbed with winch!

The rear of the frame was chopped and lowered for the hinge, bed lift stops, and it also lowers the hitch as an added bonus. Pretty trick.

$4800 is alot of dough, but I may have one of these done and keep it in stock for sale. It came out very nice.

The Deuce has been eating tires. He put locking hubs on the front, and that helped alot. Can he put a set of hubs on the rear, too? Would that help in turning and eating tires?

Enjoy the pics---

4800!? I've got about 800 in mine, and some on here have one for less. 500 at the junkyard for the hoist/pump/hinge off a grain truck, 220 for the correct PTO, 80 in hoses and fluid. Sure it took a week of work to install it, but looks like I made 4000 that week! :D

You can put a double splined axle, and one lock-out hub on the rear to unlock the rear axles from each other.

Yeah, that sounds like alotta $$$ to me, too. But it is new, and all he had to do was pick it up 3 days later. I like your way better.!

Good idea on the axle- I will tell him that- thx.

I have done these dump conversions on M35s too. I have been searching for the best prices on new hoists and hinges, and PTOs and pumps and tanks and contrls. All the cheap numbers being kicked around here sound delicious, but when it comes down to it, The cheapest new hoist I found was 1900, accessory drive for a used PTO was $295, lucky I had the PTO at least. The hinge was $85, there was a charge of $250 to change from electric hoist to PTO powered hoist. And I know what it takes in hours, welding rod, hole drilling and grinding to make this job happen, and please a payng customer. There is a difference between doing it for yourself and doing it as a business for a paying customer who wants what he wants. Big Difference.
