Default Shop Tour & Cleanup

Hey Guys,
It's been awhile since I've posted on here. I've been busy with the All Terrain Track Chair (ATTC) project, and I just took the prototype to Texas to demo for the client, and then got back to South Dakota.
I figured that would be a good time to do some shop cleaning, as the next item on the ATTC is to finish some detail work, and then tear it all apart for full welding, paint and assembly.
I also had a bit of fun during this, as I got the wife's '93 Camaro out for a spin, as well as my '98 BMW. Fresh gas and Stabil in the tanks, ready for winter.
I hauled out some scrap iron to make a bit more room, forklift came in handy for that.

Here's a video I put together of the before and after, and some pics of the cars.

Later,
Kent

That's a nice looking, handy machine, but I think you might be asking a lot from it by pulling that pto mower over that rough terrain with only 35 horses.

Well, that was worse case testing, and it performed quite well with that. The client doesn't have a rotary mower, and his grass isn't nearly that thick.
It actually mows better with the ATTC than my WD Allis does puling this mower.

I'd like to see the tour again with the car covers off.
