    Home made dredge cart ?

    Was thinking about making a small cart to carry my 2 inch dredge. Just wanted to see some of your pictures or ideas on making one.

    If you get responses, look for the one option you shouldn't be without.........BRAKES !!!

    Didn't find much searching.
    Prospectors Cache Forum - Viewing topic #95150 - Anybody Know of Any Dredge Cart Plans

    Depending on the terrain, I'd incorporate the axles into the dredge, make the wheels removable.

    Skip to ~5:00


    Probably bigger than you're suggesting, and I'd put the wheels to the inside, but along those lines.

    I guess that could be one use for the $50 power chairs I saw at the thrift store.

    I had made another cart up over the winter. Matter fact just got done painting it.
    Sometimes my projects just seem to go in slowmo. But here is a picture of it. Brakes are a must if the terrain is less than flat.
    I use these to haul the heavies (Motors, pumps, winches...).

    GH fab job rocks,as usual, and see the brakes too!!. The outside bar over the wheels is a great stability edition as really makes the frame much more rigid and helps keep brush outta them spokes. All you have to figure out is the center of gravity on whatever your hauling and good to go for many pain free miles-cool tool-John

    Instead of building a cart I just added easily removable wheels to my 4" dredge.
    Pull 3 hitch pins and all the wheels are off...... or leave em on if the water is deep enough.
