I see there may be some misunderstanding of a couple of things here.

First, I should clarify that my aversion is with all power drive when not needed not just electric power. I believe adding power drive and control systems to our lives is a disservice to humanity that will be realized by everyone soon enough. Hydraulics introduce another distasteful element for me, that is the possibility of leaks. I was quite upset when more than a gallon of fluid soaked into the ground after a hose burst on my backhoe last year.

Second, this dumping hoist/winch will be used with my tractor as a tow behind trailer with two wheels. When the skid steer quick attach plate is installed the trailer frame and dumping hoist will be removed and the caster wheel will be attached in its place. With this configuration the tractor loader will dump the box, there is no need for any other dumping mechanism.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

Aren't energy consumption and computers supposed to make life less stressful?

The new axle components ready for being pressed together. Since I will weld the assembly I only created about .001” interference.

Pressing the parts.
Notice the square on the press bed, I use it to check my progress. Notice the offset of the press ram and the axle. Here I am trying to make a correction to bring them square. I check this about five times for the first inch of travel.

These pieces needed about 8 tons of force.

Some overdue updates for this thread. I have this contraption mostly done. Despite several obstacles and set-backs I have managed to get that fuzzy feeling about a job well done. My fingers are crossed however as I have yet to actually use this thing.

For those interested I will try to add a link here https://www.shopfloortalk.com/forums...ad.php?t=51567 for a thread that shows how I made this pintle ring.

This shows some of the parts for the tailgate latch.

I added a 3/8”-16 threaded hole to both pivot supports. Here there is a threaded rod screwed into one of the holes. With this rod I can fish the support deep into the tube.

I also added a cover the the latch pawl. This to help prevent debris from entering and fouling the movement of the latch. I hope this works.

Showing the quick attach mounting plate. In this configuration the box will be removed from the trailer frame and the single caster wheel will be attached.

This is a reminder that I have yet to make the hub and modify a wheel for the caster.

The empty trailer frame with all ancillaries installed.

From front to rear:
Pintle ring and mast support anchor
Pivoting jack
Pivoting mast with winch, switch box and mast support anchor
Short crossmember
Axle/crossmember
Battery/tool tray/crossmember
Rear crossmember with tie-down shackles
Bed pivot assembly

All parts are separate and bolted together. The axle and battery can be placed anywhere along the frame that has holes to accommodate them, they share the same pitch.

Showing an attachment I made to funnel concrete out. The sheet metal filler has not been installed yet. It replaces the swing out tailgate and attaches with six 3/8” screws. The sliding door has only edges in contact with it to reduce the chance of a stone jamming the movement.

It should easily be able to contain 1 cubic yard of concrete.

Here are the pile of sliding door parts that I cut off from the concrete funnel.

The action of the door was inconsistent. At times it worked fine, other times it would completely jam. Sometimes it would bind near the bottom of the stroke, sometime at the top or both. I tried in vein to correct it. I would get some improvement but it seemed to be extremely sensitive to any debris in the track.

I have changed my design to a swing door.
