Talking Evolution of the Hay Hauler

Ok so this is one of my longest builds ever so this may be a little spotty build thread but here we go.

Ok I first got this truck used off of Rc Universe and here is how it looked.


So as the Blue was no good for me I went with the color of a shop rig at the local Case IH Dealer.

Soooo needles to say i did not like how that looked either so it was time to go all out on it. Few years ago my uncle had a COE IH Eagle that had a flatbed and a 38 foot flatbed trailer it pulled with a pup and hauled the large square bails on it so that is the truck I went for.

So I started but tearing it down and putting it on KH rails and mounting a GD600 gear reduction to the rear of the gear box.





Next I built the flatbed for the truck out of alum and added a pine wood floor to it and mounted it to the truck

Ok so the next order of biz was to take a pole trailer kit and lower it and make a dolly out of it. You can see in this pick if you look close I notched the rails and raised the leaf mounting brackets to lower the deck of the 5th wheel.




Ok next the hitch on the back of the truck and the tail lights. For the lights I used some Knight Hauler tail light parts.

Next I bent a sort of headacke rack for the bed on the truck and made my first set of stacks for 1/2 alum KandS tubing.




Now for a new paint Job. Went with the same colors as the truck back at the farm and stained the wood on the deck and added a few detail. Keep in mind it end up changing things a few times..

Here is a little side skirt I built to make it look more like a IH.



Now for paint on the dolly.




Next for some new fuel tanks and side boxes and front bumper and air intake.

Here is how I did the trailer light plugs. I used Deans 4 pin mini plugs one for Pos and one for Neg and the wiring on the trailer.







And the stuffing of the MFU in the cab.

And here she is all finished up..

Awesome work, Paul. Another great looking that I remember from the old gt forum days. I still think the paint is sharp. That red is looks really nice. I never noticed the 'Haulin Grass' sticker on the back. Nice.

Before it was switched to Lipo I had the battery plugs in the other tool box so you opened the box and unpluged it and charged it right there. But now it is Lipo I just slip them in and out of the cab.
