Meanwhile at the Busted Knuckle Garage we have a Redneck Winch Truck conversion just finished. The old 1953 Ford that looks like "Mater" hadn't run in a decade. But I would sure like to use that old winch on the back sometime.
Trying to sell the engine in the classifieds to help offset the conversion project expenses.
So the Ole Knuckle Buster got to brain storming and decided to cut "Maybelline"* in half. Put a hitch on, and a hydraulic driven motor on to run the winch with the tractor's hydraulics.
(*Papaw calls her Maybelline because she is so beautiful)
And voila! A winch truck, that is not a winch truck. Now instead of trying to start the old truck, just hook a tractor on. It was fun running around the machinery lot picking up stuff and setting it back down.
Anybody need something picked up?
