Enjoy this tour along a collection of old and not so old machinery and equipment, homemade conversions and projects included. Plus some bonus images for CC-folks with green fingers.
A 1976 Volvo F407 flatbed truck with the Club of Four tilt cab.
A more recent piece of equipment, this one-tons 2019 Anssems single-axle trailer.
Look, it clearly goes beyond the usual flatbed utility trailer with dropsides.
It came from the factory with a manually operated dump system. But now the trailer has an electric/hydraulic system, built by the owner. When necessary, the battery can be charged with the bed down.
Neuson (nowadays part of Wacker Neuson SE) tracked mini-excavator.
A homemade, trailered generator set. Powered by a Mercedes-Benz marine diesel engine.
The workshop, where things are getting done.
Over to the greenhouse, further down the yard.
This Shibaura used to be a mower and was converted into a forklift much later on. Another DIY-job. In the background you can already see what the owner/operator’s profession is.
There are more potted plants -big ones- alongside the driveway. In part two we step inside a private museum, mainly filled with classic horticultural equipment.
