Built this from pressure treated lumber ask a birthday pressure for my grandson a couple years ago. It is weathering nicely. Used a section of very old brass pipe as the fulcrum.

If that’s a full size 4-wheeler, that teeter totter appears to be about 50 feet ling and 25 feet tall. Quite the undertaking!

BinghamtonEd – the picture compresses distance. Teeter totter is about 10 foot long and under 3 ft tall at center.

Every once in awhile the idea to make one of these for my kids comes into my head, but I never wanted to have to secure something into the ground permanently. What a cool idea.

Ever have trouble with it tipping side-to-side?

Helkat – this one is hefty enough to just sit without any anchors. Base is wide enough that we don’t see any side to side problems.
