    Default home made lifter.

    Hello all, I was just updating my details and choose a shot of my home made lifter for the avatar.(on the old mf65)

    I needed something up front as I have difficulty turning around.
    Its used as shown for helping the mobile butcher (thats him in photo)
    Lifting 55 gallon drums of molasses, and logs which I turn into charcoal.

    My work in progress ia a home made conical screw log splitter.
    Our timber here is very tough.

    You have a large and interesting forum here and I find the differences great.
    I've never even seen snow.

    regards vince.

    Looking at the avatar, it is kind of hard to see the lift. Can you post a larger picture in the body of your post.

    Also pictures of your splitter.

    When I works, I works hard. When I sits and thinks, I goes to sleep.

    Git er done.

    Hello J.J. will do when I get fresh batteries for my camera.

    Re the lifter, in earlier times they (the cane farmers) would get the cane bins onto the trailers by pushing with the tractor ( fitted with a h.d bull bar ) that system is gone now and I got the bull bar for nothing and it forms the basis of the lifter. Maybe I should mention the cane bins and haulage to the mills is by way of diesel locomotives on a narrow gauge. (2 ft ) I drove one of these loco's in the late sixties and its still in use, in fact my old fergy was once fitted with a cane harvester in the same era.

    Regards vince.

    I would be interested in that, too! I looked at your profile and Biography: a bit of a mad inventor. We can use more like you around here (mainly so I can copy ideas ).

    If you need help loading the photos, just ask...

    Hello all, I will try an add pics of the lifter below.
    Will do the log splitter after I add another lay shaft as it needs more grunt.
    Regards Vince.
