It’s great to have the wee truck for utility duties around the place and thought I’d post up some photos of what it sometimes gets used for.
Feel free to share your own. (Could be anything - even transporting the shopping!)

Shifting roofing panels for a new garage/workshop (I only moved them 100m or so)

It makes a great platform for loading them on to the roof

I had to use Lurch to go and buy a 12 foot christmas tree for work and take it 16 miles into work last year, which got some strange looks from people as i drove past.

Lurch also had to take rubbish to the tip, carry garden furniture, various other odd shaped bulky items that won't fit in a car.

No pictures I'm afraid.

Before I took mine completely apart last winter, I looked for every excuse to use it around the farm. Things like collecting weeds from a strawberry field, checking hayfield conditions, and delivering hay to horses in not so distant paddocks. There was also horse fence repair runs and maple sap collection (with a couple 55 gallon drums in the back). Can't find my photos of those though.

Nice to hear some stories and see some pictures of how we use our vehicles! I do like to see them being used.

It was a beast of burden again this weekend - I had to shift an old shipping container to its new location up by the new garage; it's in quite a horrible condition actually, the roof and the sides leak. Anyway, I'm going to put a 'new' roof on it and clad the sides with timber that I reclaimed from some old field shelters. The Haf was ideal for transporting that stuff about.
