I have been cleaning the area in front of the 'Tractor Port' before weather gets bad around here. Even moved the old 'wagon' to a better spot. Now have more open space in front.

I thought about using these and putting plywood over for a floor in there. The gravel hurts the knees and I'm too old for that (362-400 yrs old). But Aaron came to the rescue. Before long I will have 5 pieces of ~36' X 12' X ~1/2 to 5/8" thick conveyor belting to lay down in there. Nice soft floor.

Beside that, I have helped Aaron build this addition to his building out back. We added on a 14' X 30' covered area (right side in pic):

The conveyor belting sounds like a great idea. Becareful, some kinds get very slippery when wet. Good Luck, Rick

This is used from a gravel pit! He has a 2500' belt to replace soon!

Yes, the Ford was in there! I have enough siding to enclose the rest, just short on 2X4 to frame it!

That belting sounds like a nice floor. Locally there is a company that installs it in barns for in the animal stalls. I think that they groove it somehow before installation. Supposed to be much better for the feet. Hope it works out good for you.

I'm surprised you still have knees at that age Kenny. :D  I'd have thought you

would have worn your legs right off by now.

 

That belting should do the trick for you.

Belting works but its very slippery and will let oil lay on top of it.

We tried it in my dads shed and we took it out after we both fell in the winter a few times

Sounds like you've been busy. Your knees will thank you for the belting, just make sure you don't slip and land on a different body part.

I hope to keep the liquids/slippery stuff cleaned up. Once the belting gets here, I may see what the back side looks like. May be a rougher material. I'll have to watch welding around it also!

Sounds like a good idea on the belting. It can be slippery, but gives some cushion, gotta be better than rough gravel.

Horse people use the rubber mats for the horses, little easier on their legs than standing on the concrete.

My dad got a bunch of "dryer felt" way back from a local paper company, it was big 15-20' wide fabric belts the fresh paper was dried on. Water proof and we use it to cover all our wood piles....and now GT's &  implements :D

Worked great for putting in the back of the truck or trailer like a bed liner, keeps the gravel in one plae and easy to shovel off of.
