More WOODMAXX 26e stuff..
« on: June 16, 2018, 01:53:04 PM »
Did't want ya to think I disappeared completely...

I needed a 3 point carryall for my tractor, so I bought a frame at TSC then took this log and in one afternoon I had a carryall... I had some lumber laying around but I needed 6" widths to fit the spacing so I cut some new ones.

So my log is on the mill.



And the 6" wide boards



Test fit on the frame..



And the finished (for now) product.



Will add a chainsaw scabbard etc as needed..

That would be great for farm use.  Load firewood, carry hunters/deer to and from the field, move hay, and the list goes on!  Gotta do one of these.  Thanks for sharing...

Yep the farm is where I use mine.. Great tool!

Researched all over, new and used for the frame, went back to the same one I had years ago, nice and heavy duty..

And you can build the "deck" what ever way works best for you..

I used the County Line carryall several years ago as a model for making my own design. 
I could not find any of my pictures before I started adding on the additional items so the one below has the sprayer boom attached. 
I found that I could build the carryall for significantly less than I could buy it (if I discounted my own time)

I also built my own boom sprayer (with modifications) based on the design of Fimco but I thought my design was better so  did it.  (Also cheaper if I discounted my own time)
I had the concept that I would use my carryall for multiple tasks so I designed it for all the "add-ons" that I could imagine.  I have never removed the sprayer from it however.  I put a much larger tank on it than any that manufacturer had until you got really, really expensive.

Been busy, and its been hot out so I've not done any sawing for a while. Helped a tree service guy this last week though and scored some logs in trade for the work. Oak and hickory.. I have then earmarked as my new kitchen cabinets once I start cutting.. Oh and one as a mantle for my living room.



So I AM still out here!  ;-)

Looks like you scored big.  That should keep you busy for awhile!  I know how the heat and humidity can make sawing tough.  This week I had the good fortune to have a mobile saw job in the shade.  A very nice gentleman I know is building a post and beam cabin in the mountains of Virginia.  He asked us to cut 4x6 and 6x6 beams out of tulip poplar, along with some pine and other hardwoods.  We also cut several board foot of cherry, which turned out to be really nice lumber.  Hope you the best of luck with your project, it appears you have it under control.... ;D

So I added that chainsaw scabbard to this..





Cut a channel in some 6/4 stock and mounted it to the backside of the carrier.



And I added a couple cuts in the sides which hold my saw as I'm sharpening the chain out in the field.

Thought it would be nice to have a saw on there without taking up floor space and bouncing all over the place! I may add one to the other side as well so I can carry a couple saws. Wish I could figure out a good way to carry my "chainsaw on a stick" its too long to do easily.

Ahhh… kitchen sink requires plumbing so that's a no go I guess! ;-)
