    Nothing wrong with bed rail. My first welding project (4H) was a large work bench made of bed rail, inexpensive and strong.

    How ticked off is your wife going to be when she comes home from work and sees her mattress is now on the floor?

    If that walk behind is a belt drive you're wasting your time. The belts will start to slip when you start pushing a good deal of leaves. I've seen the JRCO units on a belt drive Metro, once you get to like half capacity you're pretty much just digging ruts

    Have used bed frame angle many times years ago. It is a bit more subject to cracking at the welds because it is such hard metal.

    Just saying keep that in mind and design for it.
