Allen from Frosty Outpost Christmas Tree Farm shared his MINI-BEEP Build Story with us. Check it out for yourself.
A Mini-Beep Christmas Story
Except for tail/brake lights and perhaps adding a windshield, Allen’s mini-beep is almost finished. He is using it on his Christmas tree farm as a tree maintenance vehicle. “It has exceeded my expectations,” Allen shares.
Using the Mini-beep to carry big loads
He can carry all of his gear in or on it by using PVC tubing mounted tools. In addition, it can easily drags out large, rogue trees that are 12 or 14 feet tall, and possibly even larger than that, even with the 10 MPH gear.
Making it his own
For the hood, Allen quartered an 8″ diameter piece of PVC tubing for the part of the hood that curves and used construction adhesive to glue the PVC to the other plywood hood pieces. Not only is this cost effective (under $50!), but it Looks great too!
He also installed an hour meter, volt meter, ooga horn, parking lights, and headlights.
He’s not finished yet, as he is too busy actually using it to finish the other details, but hopes to get it all done by the fall. He said, “Maybe in a few years I’ll make a float box and mount an outboard and take the grand-kids out on a lake.” Sounds like a fun project.
