I just converted a 129 CC to hydraulic lift and in the process realized that I had enough parts left over to do something I have wanted to do for a long time. This is what I started with.

I started this afternoon and when I finished this evening this is where I'm at.

Any idea where this might be headed? No it's not going to be a limousine :smile1:

I am going to guess a "dump tractor". I like those for all except turning radius lol.

That was quick Casey. Good guess.
I just had to take advantage of the things I had available and the fact that the shop was empty. Now I have to come up with the cylinders. I'll try and post photos as this progresses.

Yep that was kind of a giveaway wasnt it?

I like your idea, keep us up to date with the progress. As far as the turning radius goes, I have gotten pretty good at "three-point-turns" with the grader. Usually dont grind the gears too bad

This'll be cool. As for the turn radius, it's a give and take situation. Best thing about something like this, it'll be a darned site easier to back up (vs a trailer) to where you want it.

Have a house full of company so it's going to be Monday before any more updates. I wish I had the woodworking skills to make an old style C-cab for it. I have always liked the old old trucks.

For a wooden cab, you could likely get away with lap joints and 1/2 inch plywood with today's adhesives. Woodworking skills are pretty much the same as metal-working skills...measure twice, cut once.

This is going to be fun to watch. Got a decent jig saw? That would work for cutting the side pieces.

Yes, go for the C-Cab! That would look so cool. As said, go with plywood & it would be easy to cut the curves. I have complete faith in your abilities Chris!
