Not everyone is too concerned about how things look.

Mingu, a welsh farmer and wheelchair user makes his own pick up trucks, and farming equipment.

He lives in a muddy welsh farm here in the United kingdom.

And just builds stuff that works! Not pretty but functional. He says he's not big on finish! 

He's big on attitude and style though! And just gets on with life.

He saw my original 4x4 "robot" and powerchair base opposite that I built years ago for a laugh.

It has chain drive between wheels and 4 wheel drive.

He basically copied it in welsh farmer style!

Skid steer when you are working on a farm makes sense. Personally I couldn't live with all that mud and muck...


Tramper

If this is your picture I apologise! Someone sent me it with an email but said it came off the net as an example of the breed since they didn't have a picture of theirs. However these are quite popular around here. Cheap (relatively) and goes off road.

Bounder with Off Road Package Also on the DO ALL indoor/outdoor powerchairs page.

When I first saw this my eyes lit up. Maybe I didn't need to build my own. Then I started to realise that this too was too big for my van and my house. Its a shame because on first sight it ticks all the boxes.

Its even black! All my wheelchairs and clothes and van are black! I do black everything... Now I cannot find any width measurements anywhere or a length measurement either.

Update: Its a whopping 29.5 inches wide! (actual measurement from a reader) So I was correct, its too wide for most doors, vans, etc Those tyres are the same size as the ones on my powerchair that I am currently building but the whole chair is some 4,25 inches wider than my own. Oops. Its considerably longer too. Oh well.

It also looks a lot longer at both the front and at the rear with a big ugly battery box sticking out the rear (lower down the page). Shame really about the size of the thing.

In this picture it looks pretty good other than the width/length issue, but when you look at the rear below it looks less well designed.:

Same type of powerchair as above but with narrower smoother indoor type tyres. Cant find a rear view of the one with the fat tyres fitted. The huge battery box hanging out of the rear is the thing that really puts me off this powerchair. It looks like its not fitted properly. But it is. Having the motors in front of the batteries requires this huge backside unfortunately.

And the very large dated square control box that you cant see here. This bit hanging out of the rear also means you can reverse your head back to the wall as I can in my own powerchair, and that the whole thing is unnecessarily longer. Still on the plus side it is rear drive, rather than those awful mid and front drive chairs that I personally hate so much!
