    Default moving metal

    does anyone have a good idea as to how to move metal around. I have a fairly smallish yard thats next to the road so any truck that would be delivering the metal would be able to pull right up next to the yard only problem is theres a hill nopt to steep but a hill none the less. and i would need to get the metal from the truck to my shop entrance which is at the back of the house, i had considerd buying a used towmotor but that wont work cause i have all grass to travel through, any ideas to dang bad 4 wheel drive towmotors are so danged big. if any one has an idea please let m know.

    build a traiklor to haul it behind your riding mower, or quad.
    nice set of big quad tires to keep the grass safe.

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    that would work but i dont have anything to pull a trailer with and i was kinda hopeing for something that would be able to lift things if needed too. I was thinking about a used skidsteer or something small manuverable, but can lift stuff on pallets with a fork attachment, but at the same time i want to keep costs down also. It would be a shame to buy a bobcat even used and just use it to move metal once in a while. Although if i build a cart i could get a cheap quad from TSC to haul it that may be the cheapest route what do you guys think?

    may well be cheaper to hit TSC for a quad and go from there. i suspect once you have it you will find many uses for it.


    as for smaller pic'c. if you have win.XP there is an Image Resizer for free download from microsoft. works great, easy and fast to download .

    If you go with a skid steer, you are going to be tearing up the yard when you turn that thing. A quad might be your best bet or an old small farm tractor, then build a set of forks for the front that you can mount to the bucket. If you live in an area where there is snow, the tractor could serve double duty in snow removal, good money in that when your not welding.
