When the digging and grading wrap up, the pour can begin. And this truck hauls the goods. The solid-wood drum adds a bit of heft to the truck and gives you a chance to try some basic turning. (Or, a simple modification allows you to build it as a straight truck.)

The Project Kit (RS-01003a) contains all the specialty parts and hardware needed to complete one concrete truck. Project Kit PLUS Turned Drum (RS-01003a-t) (BACKORDERED!) is identical but adds the turned drum (part M). Straight Truck Project Kit (RS-01003a-2) contains all the specialty parts and hardware needed to complete one straight truck. Project kits and plans sold separately. (See photo. Lumber is not included with Project Kit.)

Disappointed that the ready made drum is not currently available. Had one turned for $30.00 plus postage of about $13.00. Very happy with the drum. Not so happy about the price.



Mistake in the plans?



The dimensions for Part P Top Hopper on the plans are T - 1 3/4, W - 1 3/8, and L - 2 1/4. I believe they should be - T 1 3/8, W - 1 3/4, and L 2 1/4. The 1 3/4 width now matches the width of part O - trough pivot block and both pieces fit correctly between the two N - pedestals pieces.

The plans are top notch and easy to follow. The disappointment is that the ready-made drum is no longer available. I don't turn wood so had to find someone to turn it for me. The ready-made drum is a very big asset to the plans.
