  1. Kubota 7100 1978 project

    Looking better now you've got some red bits,
  3. Been a bit wet today.

    Looks bad Norm, if you had a mini digger you could make a drainage ditch
  4. Give us a Lift

    Made some progress today with the hoist, found a box of caster wheels and luckily a set of 4 heavy duty ones, 2 with brakes. The box section is thick wall and nice to weld, 4 plates were cut to mount the wheels and then welded to the box section then the uprights were added. I going to weld a A frame at the bottom to give it more strength and make the top bar detachable so i can fold it up when not in use. heres some photos of today's efforts

    No danger at Johns, i was in the mini digger.
  6. Give us a Lift

    Had a rummage through my boxes and found my tackles that ive collected over the years ( don't know why ) but here's some photos.
  7. Give us a Lift

    I could have parked it on Pam's lawn and put the dipper arm through the window . Thats a good idea. I want something more manoeuvrable than that Mark
  8. Give us a Lift

    As I advance into my mature years I'm finding it harder to pick-up engines and transmissions so i'm looking at making these things easier without spending any money. I'm looking at making an engine hoist or gantry and was wondering the +s and -s are between them
  9. Wheelhorse from bits

    Had the Wheelhorse out today in the southern sunshine and drove it round the garden a few times. Runs and drives as it should so I'm very pleased with it.
