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!

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.
