We would have used a rope but with a very limited time scale of 4 weeks to build it and film it this was the final result I think there will be some modifications in the future.I've been watching, cracking job Tom.
In the last video there was talk of adding more weight but the JCB wouldn't lift the skip, consider a rope from the top of the arm down through a pulley on the chassis for "setting" it.
Then clip the rope to the arm out of the way for firing.
Maybe I’m the one with the talent.......That must be interesting working with furze he seem a very talented and likeable guy and your welding is far from shabby either.
I watch pretty much all his stuff and love the presenting style he has an unbelievably big following very well deserved in my opinion.
I will watch future videos with renewed interest in "the man behind the scenes" thanks for the post
By the way how long does picking up the debris take ?
