I have two rollers, a 317 and a 400. Neither have an engine in them, but the 400 is about stripped down to the frame. I have been thinking about turning the 400 into a hydraulic dump cart to be pulled and powered with a 430. My idea would be to take off the front axle and wheels and replace with a 2 inch receiver hitch, cap the transmission with fluid in it and leave the selector (weld?)in neutral. I have it laying around is the best reason why I'd do it, instead of buying a trailer frame to start from. Before I jump in I thought I better ask if this is not a good idea. No idea if the transmission will appreciate this kind of treatment. Please weigh in if this is a dumb idea, or if you have suggestions to make it work. I think painted up yellow and green it would look pretty nice.
