    Looks like a oversized version of the box on my cub.

    Looks interesting, what kind of power does it have running it?

    That's essentially what it is, just made by Giant Vac. I put a new battery in it today, and after I figured out where the on switch was, it fired right up! It has a 4 cylinder Wisconsin, onl puts out 30 hp but man does it sound cool! Gonna take that small axle out later this week and throw a 3500 lb axle under it, then weld up the hitch.

    I was thinking of just throwing the axle under it without springs? I want to keep it as low to the ground as I can.:weightlifter:

    That 1997 chevy went for $150.00 at the auction!!! too bad the frame on it was snapped in half! It had the 6.5 litre diesel in it too, would have mabe a nice plow truck as it sat!

    I was thinking the same thing. Sell the motor and scrap it, but good luck.

    they have one just like that locally on craiglist....thought it would be too heavy for most lawns I take care of once its full and the ground gets wet. but the idea of the truck loader sounds good
