Travis, this guy is cool. I just posted today on a thread about websites & vids about people designing and building these sorts of things, useful on the homestead. Having seen this post of yours, I’ve gone back and edited my post to include “Ben’s” Youtube channel. Thanks.

I've needed to acquire some land, make improvements, build & repair buildings, and try to avoid debt for my family. LOL I've never owned a piece of equipment larger than a Ford 9N. LOL I've got a 4-wheel Toyota pickup, a Stihl chaninsaw, a peavey, and a pair of gloves.
