I think the top would be OK but if it were me I'd figure a way to provide backward bracing for the bottom pivots since they would absorb the brunt of the pulling. Seems doable.

Time for an update. The weather finally got decent enough I could finish painting the planter. The front wheel and the planter guts, shaft, and gears are Planet Jr model 300A from the 1940's. The cradle and rear wheel are current Cole Planter production. Isn't it amazing that after all these years the planter itself has the exact same dimensions and fits the cradle perfectly. For now I'm going with the original hopper but it would be easy enough to bend a piece of aluminum to insert into the hopper to increase it's capacity. Maybe later.

I wonder what the lift capability is. A few hundred pounds?

Man was this thing a hit at the RPRU show. Dozens of people took photos, asked questions, and even took measurements. I thought there might be some interest but even I was surprised.
