Troy did us proud with the construction of this tipping trailer, creating a superb work horse that he clearly puts to good use. The trailer sports tough chequer plate mudguards and heavy duty tie-down side rails. The tailgate has a dual hinge system for top or bottom swing to suit the load being tipped and he has used load capable 4WD wheel and tyres, which no doubt would come in handy off road.⠀
Seems Troy is not the kind of bloke to do things in half measures. He went well beyond minimum legal requirement and fitted the trailer with plenty of rear and side marker lamps, which not only looks great but makes the trailer highly visible at night. A large multi-purpose toolbox on the drawbar houses the hydraulic gear and has room for plenty more. Safety chains are not welded on but rather attached to lugs using hammer-lock shackles or similar. This is a requirement over 3.5T ATM and although strictly not necessary on this trailer, it’s a nice touch.⠀
But most of all we like how this trailer is being used – moving big chunky things around and getting the job done. Nice job Troy. Well done mate.⠀

When I was in 3rd grade, I learned about cotton at school. I was so fascinated that something so fluffy grows out of the ground. My parents grew a small patch of cotton in the backyard for me. (Go mom and dad!) ✊ That plant is still there. 🌱The cotton shown here was off of one flower bud. Today, it took me 10 mins to remove the seeds from the fibers of ONE bud. Imagine a field of these buds. Imagine fields of fields of these buds. The cotton gin invented by Eli Whitney revolutionized this process and changed American #manufacturing . Eli Whitney pioneered mass production and interchangeable parts. So yeah. #Cotton . #denim#jeans#eliwhitney#industrialrevolution

Yesterday marks an extremely sad day in Australian history, the death of an Aussie icon and an entire industry.
Who would've thought that the Australian car industry, an industry that once upon a time was a world leader, so strong and solid, would one day be completely wiped out.
Unfortunately the wheels were set in motion years ago (pardon the pun), and the logic behind the policy that was the beginning of the end for the Australian car manufacturing industry is beyond comprehension. A deliberate policy decision, but since then absolutely nothing was done to save it. It's a tragedy and a disgrace.
Australia is the only OECD country to destroy its own car manufacturing industry, instead of protecting it. How the hell does that make sense on any planet ?! If a nation has no manufacturing, what does it have to build a strong national economy ? Manufacturing equals innovation, skilled workforce, etc, that's economics 101.. But more immediately and importantly right now, what about all the people who have lost their jobs as a result of this ? ...Holden employees, the entire network of suppliers, locals cafes and businesses near plants/factories/offices.. What do they all do now ?
I've seen lots of press about the Holden closure in the past few days, and I'm puzzled at the stance a lot of the reports have taken. This isn't a time to take a light stroll down Holden memory lane, reminiscing fondly about the car that was..."Awww everyone has a Holden story." ...Yes they do, but it's not one filled with rainbows and sunshine, it's a pretty bleak one, and not a lot of ppl are saying it. Take off those rose coloured glasses and let's call this for what it is.
The Australian car industry was world class and a leader in innovation, design and technology. I never thought I'd see the day when it was deliberately killed off by our own policy makers. That's the world we live in today unfortunately, it's tragic and disgraceful 😔
Oh but that's ok, we can still make coffee and smashed avocado... that's a solid future Australia 👍🏼 #RIP#holden#icon#car#manufacturing#australia#saddayinhistory#australianhistory#instacar#automotive#instaauto#automotive#carsofinsta#tech
