    SCUT Green Tractor Tent

    After a year and a half covering my new 1026R SCUT with canvas tarps, and not able to build a machine shed/business building, I picked-up a 10' x 20' King Canopy. I scurried to put the thing up in December between rain/wind storms in the Pacific NW. Made it in time and I'm quite please with the results so far.

    I haven't fasten it to the ground yet, want to square it up in the spring. I did secure each of the eight post to a double plate of left over 2x6x12' pressure treat lumber. On top of each plate inside I place 16x 16"x"8x6" concrete blocks weighing 26lbs each. The floor is currently several thickness of 6mil poly over a dirt pad. I tucked the top poly layer inside each of the 10' sides, over the double plate and concrete blocks. This reduces the influx of rain water. I did some audit work for a company just south for years me and they recycle tires to crumb then into horse trailer mats, playground tiles, etc. I'm going to see if I can purchase several scrap mats to improve the floor.

    While it's not a stick building I think it will get me to summer when we plan to build a 40' x 40' stick building for my equipment and firearms business.

    I did that for a few years when I first got married. Our first house had a one car garage. I used a 10x20 canopy and a 20' eclosed race trailer for storage. Canopy worked well. Had to replace bungy cords every so often and keep snow/ice off roof. I used 6 5gal. buckets full of rocks to hold it down. For the floor, I used plastic deck boards. I got about 4 years of use from it befor a snow storm took it down while we was out of town. Not bad for $200.--

    I'll most likely be doing this very same thing when I move. I'l need something temporary until I build the pole barn.

    I'm using a 10x20 tent which is very similar. It is working ok for now. I'm not sure how long it will last.

    I used the screw-in anchors provided to tie it to the ground.

    The wind whips it around a lot. I'm afraid that a strong gust could rip the cover.

    Hopefully, I get a 'real' garage/shed built for it this year.

    Anyway, as others have mentioned, the tractor is the least expensive portion of this hobby. I had considered the cost of the attachments, but I didn't really count the cost of a new storage shed when I bought the tractor.

    I had a similar, but not quite as fancy setup at one point until a good snow storm collapsed it in my truck. :-(

    I bought a heavy duty green outside/white inside vinyl round top about 15 years ago. Put it up at my moms to store my land cruiser.
    That sucker is still standing tough. The zippers on the door are buggered is all.
    I want to bring it to my place but i'm afraid the vinyl might not like being folded up for the move.
