Digging Box (for 360's)

Digging Box (for 360's)

Postby Rich81 » Sat Dec 10, 2011 6:17 pm

After the last Detling meet on the 9-10-11 where we had 3 360 bits of plant, i decided to make something for the layout that was a bit more built for purpose and the other box that we was using last time which was Elliot’s (which he has now given us to use) will be used for a dumping area for trucks and plant to tip into.

This box can hold a nice amount of dirt and up to 4 360 plant diggers or the ramp will take a dump truck or a wheel loader if you decide to tip back into the same box.

It will get a coat of paint and undecided yet but the ramp may get ribbed to help the 360 with traction but this will be tested at the next meet.

Here it is in just some of the different combinations it can be used

This is it with the 4 different positions you can have the ramp as you need to track each machine on and off with all 4 sides up.

Rich, that looks superb. I will bring some anti slip thingy with me on sunday. It's the stuff you stick to steps, the with is 200mm and 1000mm long, shoud do the trick?
Also I should have the merc ready so i'll bring it along with the KW.

Cheers Pete glad the box has been liked, i normally chuck dryed sand into the paint when its wet to give the same effect as the grip tape you have got but we shall try it on sunday any case because ill be leaving the ramp unpainted atm.
