Let’s see those Rigs

Keen to see everyone’s set up for general off-roading, camping and hunting. Here’s a pic of my VW Amarok.

Yeah it was rolled up the rd. But goes first time every time and doesn't stop til I turn the key. I'll eventually take the roof off and put a cage in it to use as a general wheelbarrow /fun rig on the block!! :thumbsup: :drinks:

This is a "rig", those are just 4x4's. :sarcasm:
And, I'll wager a bet I've done more "off-road" in it than most 4x4's.

Once you have gone tracks, you don't go back. You look at a rough bit of country and think how it could be made easier.

Just taking a little piss of my own there gamerancher. :D

That bad boy can rip hard shale a full shank deep first time. I was ripping for a 120t digger that could only leave teethmarks on it. Went through ripper boots and shank guards like they were cheese, and ~1000lt of diesel per shift.

Have you seen that bloke somewhere up around Clermont(QLD) who's 'upgraded a couple of D11's for blade-ploughing?

Hard to imagine a D11 being under-gunned for ANYTHING...

Beefed up the power output & cooling systems, and incorporated an auxiliary fuel tank into the frame of the blade-plough, so they can run for 24 hours without stop. Pretty sure he's got 2 of them, and working on building a third...
Freaking blade-plough looks like you could use it as the winged keel on an aircraft carrier...

That is one BALL TEARER of a tractor Rod. The new engine was so big they had to put the radiator and oil coolers on the roof of the cab.

70t is pretty decent weight for a plow too

Dont think I'd seen the upgrade to put the radiator up top, but then I think I'd only seen a photo that showed around the hitch & front of the plough, in the past.

Really need a couple of blokes to stand in front of that blade, to get an idea of the huuuuuge freaking size of that thing...
Is the D10 blade 40ft across, or is it the D11?
That blade on the plough (2nd pic) would have to be the ultimate gong for a shooting target!
Probably able to shoot it from 20 feet away with your .50 cal without it drilling through, (and maybe duck as you pull the trigger)...
Of course; finding something to hang it from would be a challenge in itself...Maybe upend the 70T plough??

What you're thinking of is a 60m3 coal blade Rod used for pushing prepared coal in stockpiles or power stations, general blades for digging applications are much smaller because of the forces involved. The blade on my 10 was set up for hard rock work.
