Berry Wagon

In the past we have always moved our equipment to the field piecemeal.  We harvest by hand.  This involves a lot of trips.  And while the orchard is right outside our door it is still a bother.  So this week I took a day and built a flat deck onto an old running gear from a truck that we had sitting in disuse.  I added a substantial rear rumble-seat deck onto the back that is large enough to hold our generator we use.  Now everything can be taken to the field at one time and moved with us easily as we proceed down each row.  I used a mix of pine tar, linseed oil, and serpentine to seal the deck.  It gives it a rich colour and is non-petroleum based.  The deck is five and a half feet wide and sixteen feet long made out of scrap one inch spruce lumber I had laying around.  The generator deck is made of two inch spruce and is three and a half feet deep and five and a half feet across.
