Had the F250 outside for a while today

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Had the F250 outside for a while today

Postby Bob Perry » Mon Oct 22, 2012 5:01 pm

Today was "re-arrange the barn" day so I figured, as long as I have it outside, better make sure a Cub fits on the 8' body I built last year. This truck will be getting a crate engine (351 c.i.) in the near future. In case you're wondering, the IH on the door is a magnetic sign.

Bob,

Tell us more about the design of those ramps. Looks interesting.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Each is a simple PT 14' 2x12 with 2x4 sides and 5/16 x 3 1/2 lags every 16". I considered adding steel to each but actually they only deflect an inch or 2, so I decided to avoid adding weight. At the top end there's a steel connector which I will post a picture tomorrow (it's dark out).

A while back I had made this video, different truck, same ramps:

You should get rid of that sissy winch and drive the cub up the ramp. :tractor:

That winch is used almost every day believe it or not. And Sunday morning it will assist in taking down a 100' pine tree that's 68' from my house. Nothing like waiting until the last minute with a hurricane coming !

I know you're joking because those wooden ramps give a little. it would be a scary !
