Dump carts

I can just hear the executive conversation when reviewing the original dump cart designs.  They probably realized that there was potential for the dump cart to tilt far enough to possibly contact the ground and create a pinch point.  The simple solution is to drop the functionality of the dump portion of the trailer and just have trailer but keep the dump trailer price tag.

Yes, sensor pro, it does sound like some overly-aggressive safety factor.

Well, you just experienced the normal process of fixing a bad design to fit your application. However you may never be able to bring it to life as a viable product because some clerk feels that longer base is too dangerous or some other stupid reason.

There are thousands of modifications to products that never see the light of day due to poor regulations.
