A fence post no more.

Recommended Posts

Here are a couple of projects that I did a while back.

I built this out of a old hot water heater, three old steel fence post, a 1/2" steel rod, and a couple pieces of 1/2" square tubing. Just add sand, dirt or cement if you want ( I used some old sand that I had ) and you have a cheap roller.(my tank is starting to get thin from the rust but I've used it for 3yrs now).

I was needing a set of ramps one day while looking around for a couple of old boards I seen this steel fence post and wondered if it would hold sure enough they work. I load a polaris 425 in the back of a truck with these. They were built out of 7 6 1/2' steel fence post and some re-bar to help hold the ramps on the tail gate. After I built these I showed them to a friend and he used three fence post length wise and welded short pieces on the back to hold them together. He loads a Suzuki Samuri in the back of a stock trailer with his. I have also built some deer stands out of fence post (kind of heavy but will last a long time not like tubing). Just a added note steel fence post are made from recycled rail road iron. Would like to see other projects built out of fence post.

I have two sets of loading ramps. My favorite are the lighter wood one's but occasionallt I break out the Fire truck running board ramps. The way I figure it....If they can handle a 49 chevy coupe they can handle anything. Great ideas! Keep em comin!! Sean aka Zippo

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
