Never dump

deleting the dump feature on a lawn trailer

I hate the dumping feature on lawn trailers.

Maybe it works okay for people with "lawns"...but our driveway has enough bumps to trigger the dump feature while moving, which is why I modified ours to never dump.

It was easy to drill a hole where the dump lever slides in and out. A short bolt with a couple of washers and a nut keeps it in no-dump mode for good.

My "lifetime" brand dump cart is frustrating because it has no tailgate. So when you "dump" the load just ends up on the rear wall of the box.
