Default Mini "hoe" mini grizzly

the Kingdom was once a borrow pit and there was lots and lots of rocks. over the years i have used the material from the banks to flatten out the yard. the rocks were part of the job and when you back bladed they all came out of the material i used to make things flat. today i decided to whip up a mini grizzle above the tub that i have been hauling with the loader as the mini "hoe" digs. it was also a good time to use up the screen i have saved for 21 years for a project like this too, lol.

more on this tomorrow

I saw one that was mounted with car coil springs under it, the operator
gave it a BONK after loading it to make it bounce around while he
swung around to get the next bucket.

Rutt Roh....Remember, keep it S-M-O-O-T-H

Nice and smooth, no jerking, no smashing, no breaking
things in the great white north eh ?

I looked a simple little screen down the street, for sale.
Simplest thing, had a Chonda (HF $99 one) a belt drive
to a long shaft running under the screen, beaings on both
side, and some chunks welded on the shaft at both ends to make it shake.

They sell for $11k or so.....

oh my, i was 4 hours whipping this one up, the tub is from the mine which is the 1970s, the screen is about that old too and the drill steel is last winter's drill program that got damaged. i used my fancy pipe wrap around temp-plates which save a lot of grinding when cutting.

in the morning i'll stick weld the leggs solid and be in full operation by noon. rains are coming monday so i want to have one part smoothed out so i know which way the rain water runs.

Yup, yours looks stronger too.

The one I looed at (the $11k one) was thin sheet metal, and you really
had to watch when loading it, not to bump the funnel.
