Pickup Converted to Bedding Truck
Richard Waybright, Mason Dixon Farms, Gettysburg, Penn., converted a 1978 Ford F-350 1-ton pickup into a "bedding truck" used to blow sawdust into free stalls.
Waybright cut off the pickup bed be-hind the cab, then mounted a 5-ft. wide, 10-ft. long, 5-ft. high forage box on it. A pto-powered apron chain carries sawdust toward the front of the box where a rubber-belted conveyor picks it up and throws it into the stalls. The pto is powered by the truck's transmission. "The most difficult thing to figure out was to get the apron chain and cross conveyor to run at the right speeds," says Waybright.
