Big Dodge pulling log out of woods - Cummins turbo
After being post for 4 years, it's time to add a few comments about this video:
Yes, the guy laughing in the video is me - the cameraman, editor, and poster of this video.
This goad was to get the pine log out of the woods without being cut up - so that it could be sawed into boards on a portable sawmill.
The truck belonged to @DUALLYSMOKE (made very first comment on this video) at the time - and is the only time I have met him. He happened to be there buying something I had advertised on Craigslist and overheard my cousin talking about how he couldn't get the log out with his tractor. He volunteered to do it, part for fun, and part to see if he could actually do it as he said.
Yes, I would fit in the category of a Redneck - but I'm good with that :-)
Deliver a shed the easy way
Delivering a shed with my custom built trailer. It's easy to move sheds
solo with the right equipment. This truck and trailer combo was the result
of years of deliveries and experience. I moved sheds full time for over 12
years. This trailer was designed by me and built by Creekside Welding out
of Bedford PA. I've since quit the business but I miss those days. Note the
side leveling feature while unloading the shed onto the level pad from
unlevel ground. Also at the end when the truck is pulling forward you can
see that the trailer stays straight without following the trucks path. This
is due to a swinging tongue on the trailer that allowed me to drive and
steer the trailer independent of the trucks steering pattern. The trailer
had a full function remote control letting me stay safe distances away
while moving heavy buildings as well as watch from the rear as I unloaded
the sheds. Operating while in the cab of the truck was also a big benefit.
In my busiest year I was delivering close to 400 sheds per year. Many of
them also included site prep like this shed had. I delivered solo on at
least 95% of them. This shed was a 10x12. The largest I could move with
this trailer was 14x36. The heaviest was around 14,000 lbs. The trailer was
rated at 21,000 lbs and weighed in at 7,000 lbs empty.

Been working on my grandparents property, part of the estate, and this
trailer just had to go! So I used my 2002 Duramax to pull it out, and I am
willing to say even though i massivley overloaded the truck with the 50
foot trailer, i am damn impressed!
Gravelrama 2010 #6 Hill Climb
Gravelrama 40 was held August 25-30 this year in Cleves, Ohio outside of
Cincinnati. The East Coast 4 Wheel Drive Association event includes rock
crawling, bracket sand drag racing, class sand drag racing, uphill drag
racing, pea gravel hill climb, obstacle course, and even a parade through
town. The hill climb is a fan favorite and didn't disappoint this year
with well over two hundred runs.

R1 Go Kart Passes a Cop
COOL INFO: Kart was bought for $5,000 plus shipping. It has had several
owners. Previous owner from Georgia owned kart for literally two weeks then
re-listed on eBay citing it was the most ridiculous thing he'd ever driven
and there weren't many places to use it. Originally this kart had 6 wheels
(google images R1 go kart). It was drag raced and crashed due to the front
wheels coming off the ground. One owner told the story of trying to get
the major tire manufacturers to produce a tire that would allow the kart to
attempt to go over 200mph and not blow up (find video below in description
of tire blowing up with speedo reading 181mph). 150mph or higher is
reached in fourth gear, there are six gears :). Kart has been sold and the
new owner is putting paddle shifters and other goodies on it. The local
police have had two driver suspects. Both suspects have been
harassed/threatened by police. They think they know who the driver was,
they're wrong. He still remains a mystery.
You DO NOT have my permission to re-upload my "R1 Go Kart Passes A Cop"
without my written permission. I have already filed copyright infringement
claims against 5 channels for re-uploading my video for financial gain.
This is a one of a kind custom frame built specifically for this engine.
One of the previous owners told me the gentlemen that bought it from him
had it up to 170-181mph. This kart is wicked.
WATCH TILL THE END, A POLICE CAR PASSES IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION!! If your
impatient to watch 10 minutes of video, skip to 7:50 and watch till the end
for the best part.
2005 Yamaha R1 Sport Bike engine in a Beisse Shifter Kart. Around 180 HP,
weighs about 220lbs. Previous owner had Kart up to 181 mph before a tire
blew out. Using GoPro Hero High Def camera with adhesive mount.
NOTE: The rear tires are worn out so the driver didn't do anything to
crazy. The ending was edited out to protect the driver.
Location: Northern Michigan
Here are a couple videos of the previous owner; where the speedo read
181mph and spun out.
