Here is a pic of something I scraped together a few years ago. I think it's an 80' kawasaki 250 two stroke. Had to run the pipe off the opposite side. Ran great till my buddy rolled it in the neighbors yard down the road doing 40.

Nice projects, looks like you stay busy.
Whats the story on the 6x6 M151 in the first photo on your site?
Do you have any details? Did you modify it or buy it that way? Can you post a few more photos of it? I had an ex-Marine Corp version, it was a blast to drive but was a rust bucket.

Hi! to you all.
Iam new at this forum. And I thougt I share this little project with you .Maybe someone else had the same idea already but any way .this was done in some kind of hurry .since we were having problems with the neighbors dogs getting into the garbage .and learned how to tip over the 55 gallons drums we were using .I salvaged a couple of fuel tanks from the dump ..and I came up with this
Ihave a Craftsman AC industrial welder in other words a BUZZ BOX That I have no idea how old it is but figure it must be at least 50 years old but it works like a charm.
I found it at a garage sale for 25.00 bucks.later I will post a picture of it Maybe somebody knows more about it Because Iam interested in the history of this beast that weight about 300to 400 pounds.Garbage bin
07-21-2005, 05:05 PM

That would take a pretty good size boy to empty that baby. LOL
07-24-2005, 10:16 PM
LoL That garbage bin could almost be mistaken for the U.S. Postal drop off !!!
Did you know the Mail Man and the Garbage Man work together? Yep I throw my bills away and two weeks later they come back in the mail !!!
