    Default Skidsteer plans

    Hi Moose, no I have no plans. It is just a build as I go project. I'll try and keep you guys posted with my progress. Currently I am busy with other stuff so the project is moving slowly.

    When you're using the backhoe, does it have enough weight or leverage to keep YOU in one place while it digs? Looks like a nice tool for all the trenching I do!

    Default More pics

    Hey Scott.
    WOW. As a self proclaimed gearhead (my wife calls me that too, but she's usually not smiling), the pics of your Malibu got me going. It's nice to see people still building the good cars, and not spending 10's of thousands to try to make their imported 'stuff' go fast. Is it pro street, or strictly for the track? I'd love to see more pics if you have any.
    And the hoe is cool too. Got build me one, just so that I can one-up the neighbors.

    Default My Stuff

    Mac, you are correct, the machine is light weight. I find this a plus. Sometimes if you have very hard soil it takes a bit to get started. Once you "break" the ground, it dig very well. I don't have anything to compare it to though. I have only used my backhoe nothing else. It is important for the stabalizers to dig in to hold it back. I have dug sewer lines to repair them, and the sides of a house to fix a leak. It worked very well for both.
    When I get a little more time I will post some picks of the sewer line I dug.

    Silver, the Malibu started out being built for the road. I never actually completed it. I sold it to a freind of my dad's so I could buy my first house. He finished it as a strip only car. It hooks hard and goes straight, yanking the front wheels about 6-8" off the ground. I was quite young when I built it. I also built a 1978 Regal that was tubbed as well. This car I did complete. It had a 396 BBC. It was my first Tub job, I was 16 or 17 when I started it, it was completed in about a year. When I get a chance I will dig up some more pics. Check back.....

    Default skid steer

    I built a Rube Goldberg loader quick and dirty to keep me from building a Cadtrac. You may be interested to see both of them: http://flickr.com/photos/21702692@N05/2102196365/

    I wanted a tractor that didn't dig up the ground and was small. Rube Goldberg got kind of big--no plans either. You have to be careful with skid steers. You might think about some tracks for yours.
