I think I'm going to do a semi trailer & converter dolly, hauling scrap from the maintenance depot. I dug through my scrap drawers and found a Wather's pulpwood truck pup I scrapped due to it being bent, and tons of wheels, and parts I need.
Well, I've been prepping the boom most of the day. I'm going to make it fully positionable, which means breaking it into segments, and making all new hydraulic pistons. I have the basic sections of the boom done, I just need to do the seat and base hinge now. The biggest problem there will be adding the top mounted hydraulic piston, because the model had a bottom mounted one. I may got bottom mounted, not sure yet.
I just stumbled across this thread and it looks great! I want to see more pics. I want to buls one of those, but with a mack cab, and another without the pup, for hauling brush, maybe a ford areomax? Please post mer pics.
