After 2 months construction I can now haul my backhoe. This may be the prettiest truck I have built to date. Made from Myrtle wood ordered from Oregon and Black Walnut from our property. Finish is Min wax satin Poly, hand brushed.
I spent about 2 months working on and off [mostly off] I detailed it down to the last thing I could think of. The interior has air seat and a jump seat. Button on the shifter for the 2 speed. cup holder, CB radio hanging from the roof. Walking beam construction for the axles. Air brakes, drive line connects to the Cat engine, bogey gears on both axles. Steerable front wheels. The pindle hitch will pull the tri axle trailer I made for the 4×4 backhoe,
