Old homebuilt implements
[Return to Topics]

I was wondering if anyone here has seen many home built implements built in the old days, I ve been fixing an old pulpwood trucks stick wood loader made out af a car transmission and rearend. This got my interest stirred up, Dad had an old 48 Chevy when he was a teenager where he worked at a hardwarestore/ house builder he got a dime for every young pine they stripped to make fence stakes out of. Dad made a rim extension on his car that hed put on at work the had a series of chains on it. It would debark a whole 6 foot post in 10 seconds. Theres all kinds of these implements here like that, just good old enginuity. I know theres been alot of home built tractors here to.

Most of my homemade contraptions are pretty crude and not worthy for public viewing. They all worked for the intended purpose though and then were scrapped for other projects. Made this dandy little scraper blade from some discarded culivator parts and odds and ends of scrap metal. The angle and tilt is adjustable. Believe I'll hang on to this one. Rebuilt a 450 4-row cultivator into a 2-row to fit on my M with the rear section made from the outriggers of the front pieces. Works pretty good too.

Well, I built my own power-lift log arch, if that qualifies.

Hi F14; We made it down to the Oregon Logging Conference & Equipment Show [www.oregonloggingconf.com] this year and what a show, had to see the Lucas portable sawmill operate. Anyway one of the vendors [www.futureforestry.com] there had the logging arch for tractor and ATV's, spiked my interest enough to build one-one of these days.

Here's the neatest log arch i've seen for an ATV. It lifts the log it self, with out haveing to have a winch ect.. I don't see why it couldn't be sized up for bigger logs.
I have this companys saw mill and edger, and they build good products! Check it out!

Cabbaged ideas off of both of them when building mine. Theirs cost $1500 or more, plus shipping. I have about $150 in materials in mine ":^) (already had the winch)

Also, I don't think theirs lifts the entire log clear of the ground. I need to do that as I travel over paved roads, and the town gets a mite testy when ya start dragging stuff down the road...
