Awesome. I am a huge fan of the old Cushman, Studebaker, IH Scout, Diamond REO, and a whole bunch of non-mechanical equipment.

6 – 6V batteries or the newer forklift type I have seen in some?

Wait a minute, doc. Are you telling me, that you made a Delorian, out of a time machine?

Thanks everyone for the kind words, since I’m an apprentice I like to do practical projects that cover new operations whenever possible.
Dallas, this one uses 4-6 volt deep cell batteries.
John, that bed mostly sees grandchildren, I don’t really use it for work. You probably are used to seeing them covered with carbon black.
Jeff, it is indeed a time machine.
Art I sent you a PM with statistics.
David, this is the only level of woody that fits my budget.

Wood is great but steel is stronger. I really love metal working but its the lack of tooling that makes it harder for me.

Beautiful. Hopefully all you put in that bed is your grandkids.

Extremely gloat worthy refurb job.
Excellent work.
I love to see old things brought back to their previous glory. You went a step or two beyond and it works.

Wow Bob! That’s beautiful! I’d love to have one of these to “tool” around in.
Nice work!!
