    Thanks!...

    My BB really weighs 1381 lbs... When I was weighing everything, I wrote it all down on paper in my shop and then put it in my notepad on my laptop... I weighed my HF QH, which is 65 lbs., And somehow got mixed up and included that weight!... I need to change it in my signature.

    Thanks for the info'!!!

    Now I know why a couple of them have a ''ring around them''!!!

    Yeah, That would be nice!!!... It would be easy for members to find them if they was planning to build a BB!

    Yes, It's well underway. In fact, I dropped it off two days ago to get my free batch of concrete poured into it, and I'll be picking it up today.

    I didn't take any photos during construction because I only had a very short time each night to work on it, but I'll take a couple photos of the finished product and post them soon. Maybe today!

    Thanks again for all your advice! You'll find it looks similar to yours, but not in JD green. ;-)

    I put 6 pipes to hold rakes etc', chain and I put in a large PVC pipe to hold my chainsaw!... I also made a ''storage box'' so I can put small items in it like wrenches and other tools!... And I put a hitch on the back so I can pull trailers!

    Here's a few pictures...(I do have pictures of the whole build)
