"Made It Myself" Dune Buggy
Ken Indyk recently sent us this photo of a "dune buggy" built by co-worker Lawrence Macqueen of Califon, N.J. "Macqueen is a service technician for a company that sells Toro commercial turf equipment and tractors to golf courses and municipal customers. He's been known to forage in the scrap metal dumpster from time to time," says Indyk.
  Macqueen rebuilt a Mitsubishi 4-cyl. diesel engine out of a Reelmaster 223 fairway lawn mower; modified a Sunstrand hydrostat transmission from a Groundsmaster rotary; and combined two Groundsmaster 300 drive axles with a Groundsmaster 400 pivot to provide the dune buggy with either rigid or floating 4-WD. The buggy's 2 hydraulic rear brakes are from a Hahn sprayer. The front axle is the rear steering axle off a Reelmaster 5100. He used the console from a Hahn sprayer, Sand Pro hydraulic tank and hydrostat controls. The rollbar and seats are from a Toro Workman.
