    Easily carried like a ladder but with added wheels can be used like a barrow it can also be adopted as a carcass retrieve frame

    Constructed from 3x2" scant and the treads or 22mm Re bar inlet in the stiles and threaded bar to sandwich the the ladder together all folds within itself.

    I like the design concept but.........................I have a couple of questions.

    What do you actually sit on and how do you get into the seat? As it looks as if the ladder is fixed to the rear of the seat back support.

    The seat is positioned at the top rail hung on hindges and has a large hole through the centre and you perch on the outer rim like a big polo mint and your feet is supported on the swivel bar where the main frame pivots, if i get time i will do some additional pics but it may be a few weeks before i am up there again. I do need to do some minor design elements on it before i make a few more mostly to do with additional steel pivots as they want to be out of angle iron instead of strap steel the leverage is sufficient to bend them a little so need beefing up but a small technicality .

    Seems like a lot of hard work and messing about for such a simple construction
    why put wheel barrow wheels on it and not some flotation tyres so you can drag it easier over the wet and rough or even then hook it upto a quad providing you hav one
    as all this metal work must start adding a bit of weight by now and by the time you hav a beast or 2 your rifle and back pack
    that will be some walk back to the motor dragging that lot back
    braver man than thy
    but good luck with your venture anyway

    Should have said before. Great high seat design. Just what I've been looking for. Cheap, easy to build and easily transportable.

    Thanx for the explanation.

    A couple of design suggestions.

    1. Make the pivots out of short lengths of Dexion. Simply cut the top, bend to 90deg's and paint with Hammerite. That why you get multiple fixing locations and can cross brace if you feel it necessary without wheeling out the mig welder. You can weld the joint and brace if you really think it necessary. I wouldn't.

    2. Make the seat bottom in 2 pieces, fix one side and hinge the other. or hinge both sides. That way you can have a solid seat base and do away with the polo mint. Allowing you to loose the cause of pressure points due to the lack of a middle. There by aiding long term comfort.

    Stick with your wheel barrow wheel design modification. I have found that there really is no need for flotation tyres 98% of the time on high seats as you can still tow using a quad. You just have to back off the throttle and ride according to the ground conditions.

    Would it be safe on uneven ground, the "footprint" looks a bit small.
