guys someone have the blueprints for one of this?
searching only find creepy 60s magazine bad guides, i need one actually blueprint.
thank you for after hand.
the pic and the video appear to show two different vehicles... ?
the pic looks like a kids' toy built on lawn tractor parts
the video looks like a Jeep CJ5, or maybe a real milsurp Jeep,,,
kek, it is missing about $250 in L-brackets for all those plywood right angles.
My old shitty riding lawn mower could put trucks around. I used it to pull a few neighbors out of ATV trail mud holes. It was slow, but it worked. The stuff in that video was all mostly flat ground. In neutral you can use just about anything to pull a vehicle(great for Tug-of-war, fyi). I'm sure it exceeds the max tow capacity though.
I bet those are noisy as fuck.
My father used to own one of these, (16-25hp?)
I think those are 6.5hp "Kohler SH265, 196cc". Weak as shit, barely go-kart worthy. I bet it is just geared lowly in order to pull all that stuff around.
You can get those for about $1500 now.
Everyone here uses these, (50-60hp I think) which are in the $3k-$4k range.
A few people here have them street legal with full insurance, plates, registration, and everything. Though, they can't run them in places like the interstate(75mph speed limit) since they only run 35-45mph max (45mph downhill in a windstorm).
While I know it doesn't translate exactly, horses can pull about 3 times their weight. Figuring an average horse weighs roughly half a ton, five of them should be able to handle to handle two and a half tons on wheels on flat ground. If draft horses are considered, they can do more like close to four tons.
Horsepower has surprisingly little to do with the strength of a horse. It's a really weird measurement that's more along the lines of how much effort a horse puts out in a full day of work. Regardless, as the other anon said, the only reason it could pull the truck was because it was on perfectly level ground in neutral, probably with over inflated tires. The actual towing capacity of that thing is probably like 300 pounds at best. This is really just a novelty for people with more money than sense, there's far better options out there.
The shitheep in the OP costs ~3200 full price for a 4x4 model.
I claimed you can buy a real willy's jeep for that much that's in working order. This is true.
Then an anon said that you could get a real willy's for 1500 in working order.
I said yes, you can, if you're willing to watch auctions for a month or two. $3200 will buy you one right now off one of the normal seller sites that normally have slightly inflated prices.
Then you posted that shitheep kit again in a non-sequitur.
>reading comprehension is hard
>frame made from plywood
>"See how it can pull these huge loads"
>(and remain waterproof?)
Welp I guess all those Japanese ATV companies have been wasting their time building ATVs using welded steel frames; a few pieces of plywood screwed together does just as well!
I'm retarded because I'm willing to believe there will ever be a pre-built mini beep in auction for that price? Those things are rare as fuck. You are better off playing the lottery. You must be a giant retard.
Holy fucking shit son. I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT THESE STUPID KITS. I AM TALKING ABOUT A REAL, FUCKING MILITARY BUILT, WILLYS MB JEEP FROM THE FORTIES AND FIFTIES.
THESE ARE COMMON AS DIRT AND YOU CAN EASILY FIND PLENTY OF EXAMPLES FOR LESS THAN FIVE GRAND.
THEY ARE ALSO ONE HUNDRED TIMES AS CAPABLE AS THESE PIECE OF SHIT "BEEPS".
So yes, you are a pants on head, mouth breathing retard that needs to learn some goddamn reading comprehension.
You were talking about both. I was only talking about the kit at any time. Hence the first link in >>937687 obviously referring to the mini beep. Not once was I ever referring to your willy's jeep even when I said "You can get those for about $1500 now," I was still referring exclusively to the mini beep, in a post that exclusively talks about small ATVs. Yet, for some reason you keep sperging out like it means something else entirely.
You'd better stop skipping meals, kid. Hypoglycemia rage can be a bitch later in your life.
>Holy fucking shit son. I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT THESE STUPID KITS. I AM TALKING ABOUT A REAL, FUCKING MILITARY BUILT, WILLYS MB JEEP FROM THE FORTIES AND FIFTIES.
depends on where you live I guess. most cheap willys I've seen was a frame with a couple hundred pounds of rust on it, held in the shape of a jeep by a few layers of spray paint....
and anyway,,,,, a willys don't float. can't pimp the bitches tight if you pussymobile cannot hit da wata
unless you put REALLY big tires on it I suppose.
a german tv programm DMAX sells them on there website they have mostly overpriced hipster beargrils outdor stuf
