    Very nice WP! Looks like you converted a snowblower?

    Ya, 9hp ariens with an added 4' frame and casters. Could not pay the $1500+ for a muck truck!
    box is removable to convert to flatbed (pellet hauler) as well.

    How far away is your woodpile? Like the powered cart contraption, I'll bet a lot of people could use one of those.
    Our woodshed is close enough to the backdoor and wood stove we just bring wood in an armful at a time.

    We also have surveillance system installed around our house, it's nice to have a video record of everything that happens around your home, whether you are home or not. I'ts also nice to be able to check in on things, via the internet, when you're out of town. Everybody aught to have one.

    Could not agree more...I have been addicted to seeing the yard and woodpile while at work!

    My pile is a mere 50ish feet from the garage up a VERY mild hill...I don't need the cart for wood but it has a multitude of uses, hauling anything heavy around the yard/neighborhood.

    Having that camera can really be a blessing. Same goes for the cart. I've considered buying one or making one but have not done so yet.

    Neat cart!

    Was that your snowblower or one you picked up just for this?

    Was a 9hp 29" sno-brush from work that had the front blow apart, basically rendering it useless. Took some steel "C" channel that was also in the dumpster.
    PT 2x's however were paid for!

    I've got a vintage snowblower out in the shop sitting, runs great but it's from somewhere in the 70's (has those hard rubber tires, chain drive augers, etc.) not really worth rebuilding for snow BUT, after seeing this thread, I have a re-purpose project for it. I bet that would be handy for some of my tree jobs, for getting big rounds out of tight backyards and such....oh and for hauling wood from the stacks to the basement door....

    Nice job, WP!

    I haven't done it yet but, you can use the second control handle to engage the pulley and drive a hydro pump/piston and make it a dump cart!
    Good luck get pics!
