Shooty Mobile Update

Post by cliveward » 02 Apr 2017, 21:55

Hi All,

The Shooty Mobile has literally been the best thing I have purchased in a long time.

It's become my daily transport which was something I hadn't considered, so it's paid for 25% of it's cost already in saved fuel. 8-)

Had a play in the mud at a work party and my job was to pick up all the outlaying feeders.

Image

I think there's 15 feeders in the back, plus some drinkers and various other bits and bobs. :thumbup:

It was brilliant in the woods, easily getting through some small gaps and the boggy parts were no bother at all. :thumbup:


Cheers

Hi All,

Oppo changed the rear transmission mounts (because they were on the way out) while I changed the oil and filter today.

10 minutes later it was all done. This thing is so easy to work on.


Cheers

It's a little forward control, a 4wd sooty pick up. Quite good really :thumbup:

Hi All,

The machine's still going strong.

With longer trips it's returning 38 mpg. :shock:

Anyway here is is doing more work on the shoot, carrying 300 litres of water up to the top pen.

Hi All,

The 'Shooty Mobile' is getting a bit of workshop attention:

Image

A new clutch kit and some slightly less knobbly tyres.

I've made a schoolboy error with the mud terrains and forgot to rotate them so the front ones are now like 50p pieces with alternating 8mm and 2mm tread blocks...while the back ones look like new. :shifty:

These new all terrains should be a more sensible option.

I'll probably pick up another pair of muds to re-complete the set to have on hand should they be needed.


Cheers

Hi All,

Bit of an update:

Clutch kit in, oil and filter change and new AT tyres fitted...

It's vastly improved! Clutch doesn't grab anymore and the annoying noise like a biscuit tin full of marbes has gone. Also not being deafened and shaken to bits by silly tyres :thumbup:

The ATs have plenty of grip, even on a sodden field that the farmer had chewed up with his Gator, my truck just floated over, barely bringing the water to the surface or leaving a mark. :o

Tested them in the snow this morning too. Absolutely no problems. Being so light it carries almost no momentum and has huge grip.

Next project is fitting the LPG conversion. If calculations are correct it will then return the equivalent of 55-70 mpg. :thumbup:


Cheers
