That's what i thought, but it looks different from cat pickup brooms i've seen. After a little bit of digging i see it'll pick up stuff in reverse, does that work well?

thanks jnb heres the before picture when i firest striped the wood off. For somer reason I did not take pictures of the supports i welded in after cutting out the oe supports. I ran 4-1/4" 2x4 support across the steal beams the gussted them to the beams. After that i enclosed it with 1/4" ar plate. Alittle over kill but im rough on my trailers. I would have like to go all the way to the rear support of the trailer with the tub but I have rollers on the back of the dove tail and the tub would have interfered with them if I went to the rear more.
