    Hydraulic & Hydrostatic Dump Truck

    In this video we will show you how to make an interesting vehicle that will be very helpful on the farm and around the house.
    You might say it was easier to use a lawn tractor and convert it, maybe it was, but we didn't have one and we had a lot of parts we wanted to use.
    Parts we used:
    - Hydrostatic transmission from a lawn tractor
    - The main frame is made of a 70x50x3 mm channel
    - The steering gear was found in a scrapyard, unfortunately I don't know what car it came from.
    - Briggs & Stratton petrol engine 14 HP
    - The seat is from some lawn tractor
    - The footrests, sides and crate are made of 1.5 mm stainless steel
    - Fuel tank from the gx200 engine
    - The air conditioning compressor is probably from a Ford
    - Hydraulic pump with a capacity of 10L / min
    - Hydraulic cylinder with a height of 200 mm

    Specifications are:
    Weight approx. 250 kg
    Load capacity on the trailer: approx. 400 kg
    Power 14 km
    Maximum speed 15 km/h
    The dimensions of the box are 90 x 96 x 40 cm

    Nice job. I'm curious to know why you sometimes shielded the camera when welding and sometimes not. I'm sure you know that the ultraviolet rays can't transmit through the camera lens.
