    1025R, Artillian Forks, Backhoe, and some creativity can move mountains...er...sheds

    We are getting a new garage/shed constructed over the next couple of weeks.
    So, the temporary "tent" needed to be moved.
    Since the materials for the new shed are to be delivered soon, we thought it would be useful to use the "tent" to cover the materials before and during construction.

    So, the question is, how do you move a temporary "Auto-Shelter" which isn't strong enough to be dragged, and isn't worth the effort of disassembling/re-assembling?

    The following video shows our solution to the challenge, and the results, while successful, are in my opinion rather humorous.

    The main point here is that with some creativity, you can accomplish pretty much whatever you want with one of these little tractors.



    What do you think of this approach? How would you have handled the challenge differently?

    Nice move I never would have thought that would work with ladders, I probably would have taken it apart/moved/re-assembled and taken up a whole day.

    Amazing what our tractors will do.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Seems like that worked out pretty well.

    Seeing it from the side the first time with the back near the ground driving across the yard was pretty funny.

    Nice job Tim!! I have a tent which appears to be the same size, 10' x 20'. I may have to move it so your video is timely and helpful. I don't have a backhoe but suspect the iMatch on the rear may be able to work the same. If not I can probably drag it since the left and right sides are fastened to a 2" x 6" x 20' double plate.

    Thanks again!

    Yea, it looked pretty funny in real-life too. Hopefully you can tell by the comments on the video that we were having a great time.
    I don't know if I'll ever use the tractor for something which is actually NECESSARY, but we've had an enormous amount of fun with it.

    How often in life do you get to say "Hey, someone's stealing the shed"?

    Just think, someone somewhere is posting a photo on Facebook talking about their neighbor driving a tent across the lawn.

    Marlin,

    The 2x6x20 double plate would make this building a lot more sturdy/stable. Great idea. That never even occurred to me when assembling it.
    It will also make the move MUCH easier. I don't think the 3 pt Hitch would have worked very well for me because it wasn't far enough back.
    However, with the double plate, it should work great for you. Also, if you have a boom pole, or something similar to extend the 3 pt lift rear-ward, it would be even better.

    The 2x6's were of a 'recycle' nature, taken down from a large arbor I made years ago. I screwed the bottom flange of each pole to the plate to add weight against wind/storms off the Oregon coast. 30-45mph or so. Also I picked up concrete blocks from Home Depot and set them on the plate inside. It's worked well for about a year now and hasn't done a Mary Poppins on me.
