july august 070.JPG A V-8 powered Manure Spreader? Holy Rat Rod!  I would not have believed it but I saw and heard it yesterday at Almelund Threshing Show. There is so much detail, I looked it over for a good 1/2 hour.  I hope the pictures will explain what I mean.

I've seen pictures of that before.  I always find something different each time I look at it.  Quite a unique form of transportation.  :thumbs:  Rick

I love it. What a creative mind! I bet this all started over a beer between buddies.

One technical q tho, is that one or two ply?

Very cool ride, bet it would outrun the bulls just fine.

That is a cool build! I like the tea Kettle for the radiator overflow. Heck there are so many cool things they incorporated into that! :D

I wondered what happened to the Munsters! I guess they retired to a farm.

Every time this shows up I see something new on the creation..

 

When I was farming I hauled several spreaders to the junk yard (Couldn't get the dealer to stand behind them!!). Now they are works of art.
