built a pull-out bed out of workshop scrap

I decided to build a pull-out bed slide, as I'm far too short to be jumping in and out of the back of the 110 to grab my tools

I know these are pretty popular on your side of the pond, but they're not seen over here much. As well as being a tight bugger, I'm always up for a bit of a play and work-round, especially if it costs me as little £ / $ as possible. Just thought I'd share the results

The only thing I bought were the roller tracks (around £45 / $73 for the pair) I had some 3/4" ply knocking around, as well as some alumimium angle off cuts, so...

(apologies for the poor iPhone pics!)

Very nice! I would recommend you add some retention for the bed platform and the cargo, so you are not killed by it in the event of a rollover.

Looks like he has a headache screen there, Mark. A wussy one, but I guess it's better than nothing.
Great work.
Maybe we should have a section for stuff like this. Home brew solutions or something....There's one on the tractor forum.

I didn't think that would pass scrutiny! Did that the next day...

Plasma cut some 4mm sheet steel and welded it in

Roller tracks are here:

http://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/convey...dules/4372832/

bit of discount made them about £45 for the pair.

Thanks Overlander, that's a good call.

The 40" toolchest is bolted down, through the ply, with coach bolts, inside.

Most of everything else is bolted down too.

There's a 3.5kva 8.0hp Honda generator in there, a 50ltr air compressor and a few other bits. All bolted down / to the side of the truck.

The pelicase and jack aren't, but they'd be worth doing, for sure, thanks for teh heads-up.

Cheers Rocky, that's very generous of you

Very nice set up!

I like the 'leg' to hold things up when it is fully extended.

Could you put a pipe fitting to also use that leg to help lock it in place when it is stored in the truck? Just a thought.

looks like a really heavy truck, all that weight inside and you tow with it regularly as well ?

Yes Sir, Ren Ching is right - we'll tow anything over here!

To be fair, my Landy is a working vehicle, so that's what she's used for.

There's a lot over here that are just 'poser' vehicles, but mine's got to earn a crust.

She's pretty heavy, I must admit (3.5kva generator, 50ltr compressor, deep cycle Rolls battery, 240v inverter, all my air and electrical tools, 3.5ton jack, three pelicases with tools inside, the 40" tool box, axle stands, all the parts I keep on board for the servicing etc etc..), but it's all used all of the time!

I'm thinking of dropping a lot of it in to one of my trailers, so I can tow it when required. Not sure tbh... going to give it some more thought.

And yes, fully loaded, she tows trailers as deliveries for customers!

The epitome of a working girl...
