FLEET OF HOMEMADE

FLEET PROJECTS“Born, live and work in rural areas, writes to the editor our reader N. Kurbatov from the village of Borisovka-2 Belgorod region. Since his school years always was doing something: model ships, planes, although no tools (except a pen knife), no literature on this subject at that time was not.

 
Then came the magazine “Young modeller-constructor” (individual numbers I have stored now) who grew up in “modelist-Konstruktor” — read it today, and draw many useful. Published in the rubrics “Public Bureau”, “Small mechanization”, “Club house masters” are a guide to action and light on technical creativity, to create their own designs. And there in my life, I did a lot. Thirty years ago, the magazine first published the material on the sled and I made the larger, later — the tillers — and I made not one, then the snowmobiles on the tires — and I got this design.
 
Photos of existing cars and now with a brief description decided to send in a favorite magazine.”

Made in 1987, since then, operated every season in the snow-free period. Engine PD-8, two-bladed propeller with a diameter of 1 m. All three wheels, from a moped equipped with brakes. Rear suspension — leaf spring located transversely to the sheet from the truck, and the front suspension — fork from the bike. The maximum speed was not measured, but, in my estimation, 80 kilometers develops.

Made in 1989 and only recently withdrawn from service. That it only took: wood and brick, and sand, and potatoes, and the trailer-dissolution even 7-foot logs. First it was the engine of the scooter VP-150 “Vyatka”. Then he replaced the motor from the “Tula.” The frame of the car from the pipes welded. Rear axle differential and is of semi — solid shaft of diameter 30 mm. Wheel of agricultural machinery. Steering — from “the Muscovite”. Brake band, cab plywood, the top of her oilcloth.

This is the second machine of this type. Made in 2001.
 
The motor of the motorcycle “Voskhod”, air-cooled, forced. Frame welded, tubular. Wheels with tires, dual cameras — from the machinery. Drive chains with a pitch 15,875 mm and shaft bearings from the combine “Niva”.

Made to replace the previous one (Photo 2). Kinematics is the same, the rear axle differential. The motor — scooter “Tula”. More reliable suspension and brakes than its predecessor. Intended for household needs, but because the maximum speed is about 50 km/h.
