    Make it dump without raising the wheels, that would be sweat.

    You'd need a small hydralaulic pump, as I doubt linear acutators would be strong enough.

    Some guy here converted a old rear engine riding mower into a power dumper.

    I think I'm gonna make one. But I will NOT be using a wheel barrow frame. Probobly make it myself and like said above, put a small hydrolic piston to dump; 4x4 would be awesome and then put a sulky on the back and ride!

    Yeah for tires you'd want something like a ball cart's tires........wheel barrow frame would be a no but a metal tub would be okay
