    Here's mine.

    That's the only pic I have of the F-700 box truck. The next one is an '82 F-650. Then the '82 GMC 3500 4x4. And the back end of the '94Dodge 2500. P1010149.JPG P1010292.JPG P1010359.JPG P1010289.JPG

    Welcome to Hearth!
    That picture of that wagon brings back some good old memories. Hauled firewood in the winter and became a hay wagon in the summer!

    The location only asks for your PRESENT location, not where you are actually from. HAHA!! I will try to get some pics of the fleet later.

    Here's a pic of my dodge 3/4 ton gas engine. Not ideal, I hate the short bed it's only 6'3". I bought this from an insurance auction using my iPhone for pics and bidding, it was a rollover. A little bondo and some glass and she's good as new, (well sort of)

    Cummins Power. Last run of the 5.9, wish it was a long bed though. Love cutting wood in the Rockies. Get to play with the bears and pole cats for a little bonus...

    I'm a little late on this one. Finally took pictures today. Using the Kubota BX2200 and trailer in the snow. What an animal that thing is in the snow with chains. I took a few runs in the 14" deep snow to pack it down and plowed out turnaround areas, dug out the trailer and back in action moving some wood since I am going to run out soon. I haven't used this much wood in the 7 years I have been burning, but it sure feels good not paying for propane. I haven't even come close to getting stuck yet as long as I stay away from the drifted areas. That little tractor works great moving really big rounds around saving the back. It also can snake into the woods in tight spots. Just isn't real good on side slopes.

    The trailer was homemade 30 years ago by my dad from an old car frame and 32 ford front end and welded tie rods - no springs. Needs to be loaded heavy to the front when going down the road or it will start the death wobble. 45 mph tops with a load. One time I forgot it was behind me empty and sped up to 65 on the highway until I heard a squeaking and felt something funny. I could see it in the side mirrors and it was jumping and wagging behind me pretty good. It is narrow and usually can't see it in the mirrors. I use the old F150 and ATV also.

    image.jpg image.jpg I use my old 78 Ford. It's still got the original 300/6 and a Borg/Warner T18 granny gear 4 speed in it. But most of my scrounge is hauled by the Honda. It feels more like play that way...

    hermancm, Back in my youthful days I had a very similar truck. Mine was a '77 F-150, long box, 2wd, 300 w/auto, it was the same orange color, without the white roof. My dad had a '76 Chevy short box, 2wd, 1/2 ton, 250-6 w/ a 4 speed with the granny 1st gear. They were fun trucks back then...

    I see the rural address sign.... Sawyer Co.? I'm a half hour north of Hayward.

    I do wish my truck had the granny gear. It is a 1990 F150 4x4 with the 300 six and mazda 5 speed. I make use of it to the fullest and the rear springs get a workout. I haven't broke it yet..... I put the transfer case in 4 low to crawl around the farm. Works pretty good. With 3.08 gears I can barely get it going and can't go so fast off road in standard 1st gear. When I am hauling a load in the bed and trailer it takes quite a bit of gas to get it going. I did break the motor mounds hauling a load a few years ago.

    image.jpg With a granny gear you usually start out in second gear unless you have a load or a hill to climb. First gear is non synchronized also. The T18 has a PTO on the side but I've never heard of it being used by anyone. I bought the truck a few years ago for $1000 and have done minor work to it, mostly replacing rotted window rubber and fixing some oil leaks but the truck is solid with little rust. I was going to use it as a beater log hauler but now I actually take care of it and spritz er up some... But I still haul lots of Maple in it no doubt!


    Erik- yep, I live in Winter, small world!

    If that were an F-350, and the box was shot, you could use the PTO and replace the box with a dump box. I wonder if anyone's ever used the PTO to turn a hydraulic pump for a tow behind, or bed mounted splitter?

    I thought about a splitter but you'd have to rig something up. A 3 point is all I've seen using PTOs. I've heard of some using a generator and conveyors but most likely they'd have a tractor to use around the place, like a Ford 3000..:)
