As far as cost I got the tires for $5 each at harbor freight have to see how good they will hold up. I got the steel scrap and told them they story and they gave it to me for free its 1/4" diamond plate it shouldn't break lolol. I had to pay for the round steel tubing though that was about $10. I also have bushings in each of the pivots, those cost about $ 15 total. If any of you want more pics or drawing files let me know I drew it up on the comp.

I'm not sure. If you look at the trash cans as a guage, I think that the foot plate may just be extra large.

Looks good! Can we see some more pic's?

These dim. are close but not exect i made some changed when i made it. I am not sure if the arm will be long enough I had no idea how long to make it so i took my best guess at it I can always cut it and extend it out more.

Very impressive Steve, mind if I use your plans. I have some 1/4 diamond plate laying around and been thinking of making one. They cost a bunch when you buy one. Did you bend the 1/4 plate or cut & weld it?

Do any of you have auto desk inventer, or auto cad, or anything that can read a step file or iges or dwg? I can export it so any of those. If you just was a 2d drawing file I can post those like the 1 i did. There are some spots that i strengthed up though than whats in the drawing. Hopefully in a couple of weeks I will be able to test it out and let you guys know how it works.
