Sand Digger Mounts On Disk Blade
Perret machined the digger himself and painted it his favorite color, John Deere green. The base, a disc, has a spindle and two tapered roller bearings under it so the cylinder rotates smoothly. The control sticks are made from 3/4-in. pipe covered with rubber handles. The "operator" sits on a plastic bike seat.
One controller raises and lowers the bucket while the other one tips the bucket.
Perret drew up detailed plans for a second one he built for his nephew and is willing to sell the plans for $20 (Can.).
