    Digging Box (for 360's)

    Post  Rich81 on Sun Dec 11, 2011 4:15 am

    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.










    Then you can have it so the other 2 corners are covered by just moving the decks about.






    And just a few other ways you can use it if there is no need to have 4 machines around it.










    And last but not least all packed up for transport, also the 2nd box that Elliot gave us should fit inside of this one

    Ok peeps here it is all finished and painted, well just got to test the ramp on Sunday at the meet to see if I need to put on a textured surface on it that’s why in the pic's its unpainted, but other than that done lol.






    This is what I meant about being able to unload back into the box it’s possible to drive up not just for 360 access.




    A simple move of the ramp and you got your dumping access.
