IH running gear with dump

Postby cowboy » Mon May 10, 2010 7:42 am

I was at a auction a few weeks ago and got a IH running gear. It has a hyd dump bed on it. I have never seen one before. Anyone know anything about them? I got it for $150 with a bad deck and two blow out front tires. And I found something to check when I buy another one. Make sure it steers! The front spindles were seized up and it would not turn. Which is probably why the front tires blew out. We broke one spindle housing taking it apart. And since its NLA my younger brother welded it up for me.

The trailer is going to be sharp when its done. I got lucky and have four tires on aluminum rims that fit right on. That came off of my old F150.

Image

The cylinder is leaking bad and needs to be rebuilt.

Image

I did get it to dump and was surprised at how high it lifted the deck. Its going to be really handy around the farm hauling brush and firewood.

Image

Rather than having the front and back tied together with a single pipe it has two frame rails like a truck frame.

Image

All in all its a neat toy. And I can't wait to get it all done up.

Let me know when you want to go up and saw some lumber :{_}: Bring a trailer and we will get you a load :||): Want a new cedar deck I got alot down that needs to be cut up :!:

Thanks David

When I got out of HS in 1984 thats what I wanted to do :!: But I did not find anyone to hire on with. But I love being and working in the woods. I wish I was closer to Rudi. So he could teach me how to work with wood. I would love to know how to build cabinets and furniture. I like old world and early american furniture and it would be great to build my own to what I want and make it look the way I think it should. I can't stand all this pressboard junk that has no style at all.

Billy,
After seeing all the things you have accomplished via pics on the forum, I refuse to believe there is a lazy bone in your body, much less your backside :shock:

Howdy Bill E Bob

Well I guess there are two me's. The one that is up north that has no problem working daylight to dark. And me at my home that does his thing on the computer in the morning. Then grabs a book and may sit in the lazyboy and read all day. But when I do make it to the garage I usually get a lot done. But its that getting started part I am bad about.

I completely identify with the slow start some mornings... btdt -- :lol:

Anytime you wanna come spend some time will be fine by me. I am sure I will earn much more from you :!: Right now I am rebuilding my cabinet shop to make it more user friendly. It used to be my business - but since I got ill in 92 it sat pretty idle for a number of years. I am back in it -- new floors/cabinetry for tools etc.,/dust collection system and hopefully a new 14" bandsaw :D Summer project that I hope to get done.

Sound great Rudi :{_}:

I don't even know what tools I need much less how to use them :oops: Metal is a lot easier just weld it up and grind it down. Wood is for craftsmen :!:

I bought basically the same thing about a year ago at a farm sale, for $20. Bad tires, hoist was complete, and the only wood remaining was the wooden grain sides.

I had a sawmill make me some 3"x14"x12' runners and 4"x6"x8' crossmembers from red oak. Got that all put together and put on some 2"x12"x12' pine planks I had on for a bed, then fit the sides to complete it.

The hoist cylinder had bad orings and seals and had water/rust damage. I honed it out and made some big orings for the piston, and reinstalled it.

After that, on ebay I bought a radio remote controlled, 12 volt hydraulic power unit to run the hoist with. It works just fine and that makes it usable on any vehicle I pull it with.

I use it to haul a heaping loads of firewood back from the country. Worst problem with it is the tires~ they are narrow and they sink in soft soil a few times when I'm cutting out in some soggy timber ground. Had to unload the trailer onto a truck and pull the trailer out on solid ground and reload it..... Other than that it comes in real handy.

PS~ impossible to back the thing up unless you have a hitch on the front of the vehicle you are steering it with.

Howdy Joe

Thats great :!: thanks for letting me know. I was wondering what to expect from its lift capacity. Mine is setup at 14 foot long and I was thinking of shortening it up to 12'. I am mainly planing on using it to haul firewood and brush. My friend wants to try round bales with it.

Thats a really cool using R/C 12v hyd unit. Dad has a woodmizer sawmill and I can cut my own lumber but I wish I had some oak.

I have never been able to back a running gear up. So all my trails are loops. I have seen my friend back two at a time into his barn full of hay and I have no idea how he does it.

I have seen those wagons with hoists sell for 100 to 1000 around here. I was at a sale once and saw a real nice one sell for 1200, it had 6' sides on it. It was a sale where I bought one of my cubs. The sale where I bought my Super M I saw one sell for 350. but they left the box and took the running gear and hoist with them. I wouldn't mind finding one around to haul and spread mulch with. I could fit more in it than the dump truck..

They do look handy.

Cowboy,
I teach wood working and would love to have a saw mill of my own to mill my own lumber. I have access to a lot of oak timber in my area but no way to mill it so it is still standing... I just bought 700bf of cherry of a mill for 400. I think I got a steal?? an I did. It is nice stuff.. has to dry till next spring though...

Good luck with it..

I've heard that the only way to do it is to have a hitch on the front of whatever you are steering it with and steer it from the front of that vehicle.

I managed to back mine about 5 feet ~ once~ and I've got a little old dodge d-50 ram pickup that is easy to steer. Didn't make much difference.

On the subject of prices, I was at a farm sale couple of weeks ago that had 4 of them. One with a box and hoist went for 650, a plain set of running gears went for 350, and can't remember the other two, but they were in the 400 dollar range.

Mine with the remote control is fun to amaze people with that happen to walk by it. I have a young 4 year old friend who came over one day to annoy me, and I had the remote in my pocket. She is sharp as a tack. I told her that I was magic, to which she knew I was F.O.S., until I pointed my finger at that wagon parked out on the street and got a real determined scowl on my face like I was really concentrating. Had the other hand in my pocket with the remote. I told her to watch, and she looked back and forth from me to the wagon, and back~ until it started to raise and you shoulda seen her eyes get big as a saucer.

She looked at me and I was her new hero!!!! But, she quickly asked if I could make her lift off the ground and I had to think fast for some excuse why I couldn't........
