I adopted new baby-girl
« on: December 17, 2015, 06:19:15 pm »
I adopted new baby-girl. It cost me $22,000
Her name is T8500 last name GMC.
She does not pee or poop. Clean and dry.
She born in 2002 and only traveled 9,000 miles ( oh yes! under 10 thousand)
Also got for her a boy-friend. He will ride her in near future.

That looks good.  ;D Once you get the deck mounted you will have a nice storage container.

I am hoping to sale it. Some one needs 30 ft dry box.

Neat truck but I'm confused (not a trucker).  The axles look pretty far forward (long tail end) and you moved them further forward?  Are you going to trim off some of the tail?  Is it not good to have a 30' bed to haul some long logs, or would they be too heavy?

Yes. I am planing to have 18ft long bad and Prentice 120 on the back.

... Are you going to trim off some of the tail? ...
A: Already done.

...  Is it not good to have a 30' bed to haul some long logs, or would they be too heavy?

A: Weight is not a problem -   Maneuverability IS. Getting into tight spots is my specialty. I have some friend (See Picture)

 



he got huge log truck. Some times he can't get into places where I need him to be. My truck will be About 26 ft bumper to bumper. His truck is 40 ft + 34 ft trailer.

Sure looks like it could do some serious hauling - looking good.

Is the purpose of the sub frame carrying the return oil to give it a chance to cool off or to add more capacity?  Will there be anything attached/welded to this sub frame?

I wouldn't recommend using the square tube sub frame as part of the hydraulic loop, even for the return circuit.  Too many stress risers, flexing and the like.  Seems like a leak is inevitable and almost unrepairable after it happens.  Iron pipe is cheap.

 what are you going to cover the motor with and what motor is in it   I would think the single frame would crack faster or bend    jmop
