I decided that we needed a garden cart. Since we had just purchased a John Deere riding lawn mower, I needed the cart to look “John Deereish”. Most of the wood used were pieces that I had laying around the shop. I did have to buy the 14 inch tires and the 5/8th inch treaded rod for the axle. I had the winch already (got it for a couple of bucks from a garage sale) so it made sense to me to make this a “DUMP” cart. I tried using a light cable on the winch but it just wouldnt wind up on the reel smoothly, so i replaced it with a light rope. Wonder if I will ever carry a heavy enuf load to have to winch up the dump bed. Now we are waiting til spring to put it into use.
