    Forestry Trailer in Paint

    Just adding a couple of pictures to the thread I started some time back...
    http://www.thestalkingdirectory.co.u...railer-Project

    Waiting for a proper grab to turn up, and a repair kit for a check valve but for know it will go out and do a bit of work to find any niggles in the pipe work as this crane has sat for a long time.
    All 10mm wall box and scratch built, "with the saying if it looks right it should be right"

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    You can always tell an Essex Boy, just you cant tell him much...

    An hour in the field is worth a week of typing trash.....

    The beauty being that if it's not quite right, grind it off and start again - don't be surprised if someone clocks this first one and asks you to build another one for them! Might be worth doing a few dwgs/taking some dims?

    To be fair I only put one of those short bits on the wings on up side down as I was called away to look at job, so come back and carried on burning it on only to have to cut the bit of box off and buzz it down the bottom lol...
    The tricky bit was making sure the bias camber was the right way round on all four stub axles!

    Nice job Tim, but just wondering how big the deer are around your way that you need a Hiab to lift them.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Thank you, there are a few big reds around where you would need a bit of help to lift it...
