Well, I really enjoyed this project!! I have to acknowledge Wood Magazine for their great and easy to follow plans! This was my first go-around at this type of project and I’m very satisfied with the end results. Although, next time I’m going to downsize! Man, these toys are big! Not sure where I’m going to put them….but I have sons/grandsons who would find a place for them. Hope the rest of the LJs enjoy them too…

Think I might be able to haul a few of your units of 2×4’s. Will have to stay away from the weigh stations along the way!

I have seen these plans and have been tempted to order. Looks like I am now that much closer! How long did these take to make? Great job!

You got to build the hoe and dozer and be ready for the skid steer in next month’s issue then build a shelf to hold all of them.
I got the poly on my truck and flatbed today, will get some pictures and post in the next few days

sam…Took about a week for each….give or take (don’t forget, I’m retired, so lots of time on my hands!) The plans were in the “Wood” magazine…

You have done a very fine job on the builds Prez… They look great.
The Wood Magazine plans are very popular on the LJ forum and it’s encouraging for us who are still learning.
