The two Garage-in-a-Boxes I ordered :dancingbanana:

 

Now my tractors and most implements won't have to stay outside shivering in the cold :D :D :D

 

Surprised the heck out of the driver that was delivering it when I cranked up the Forklift.  Made his day too, as it made off loading them a snap.

 

According to the shipping invoice, the pallet weighs in at 393 lbs. and the FL didn't even grunt.  Man that thing is handier than pockets on a shirt.

Yeah it was.  When I ordered, they were estimating sometime around OCT 2.

 

As soon as I can get a 'scrub' tree or two cut down and lay out just where I want them, I'll put an ad on the Oberlin College site.

 

Another option would be to contact my 'little visitor' from the other day, and see if she knows any young lads that would like to earn a bit of money.  :D :D :D

Do you if so how much counter weight do you carry on the back. If you set those up end to end could you lay a tarp on top where they meet to keep the rain out. If you could HF has them pretty reasonable. Hope everything goes together well for you.

  Man that thing is handier than pockets on a shirt.

 

I'll bet it is then because I really like shirts with pockets.  Two if possible!

 

I hope you get them up without too much of an issue.  My neighbor at camp has one and he fits a LOT of stuff into it besides his boat.

Do you if so how much counter weight do you carry on the back. ...

 

 

Well, the box itself is 3/16" which is a dab over 7.6 lbs./sq. ft. I measured it and calculated the weight.  It's a bit over 125 lbs.

 

The barrel section that is filled with concrete is around 265 lbs. and there are a couple of other weights in there.

 

I'm guessing that there is about 450 lbs. hanging off the back.

 

If that's not enough, I have over 600lbs, of various wheel weights that I could and any number of them if necessary.

:D :D :D

The hardest part is digging the holes for the corner post hold downs every thing is simple from there on till you get to the tarp.

Yeah, that does sound like a lot.

 

But, it had a lot more than that hanging on it.  I've taken out one set of 15" wheel weights, a Simplicity rear weight, and two big rectangular weights that had to be 100 lbs. + each, so it's not carrying as much as it was before I got it.

 

Plus it's had weight there for 40 years or so, and hasn't broken yet.

 

I guess that with that whole assembly hanging on both the front and rear that it might lessen the stress a bit too.

I really want to know how handy that forklift is. Bring it down here and let me see.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had a nice portable building till a tree decided to attack it.
