This past weekend I happened to see this unique machine while going for an early morning ride. I didn't have my camera on me so I powered back to the campsite and grabbed it. I spoke to the designer of the machine and asked permission to take some photos. He was all smiles as he was showing off his fabulous engineering feat.

This home made machine dubbed "ROCK DAWG", is fully operated by hydraulics. It has a motor right behind the driver seat which serves as a generator to the batteries.

I cannot imagine how long it would take to figure out how to use all of the levers.






















What a fun looking ROCK DAWG. I got to see it move around but only a short distance as he was just checking clearances of his creation.

Haha...Ya'll look at that last pic in the first post.....my mind tells me to do 2 things.....keep in mind the machine's name "Rock Dawg", K?

1)....have a recorded soundtrack of a dog howling and
2)....install a windshield washer bottle/pump/nozzle to be able to "pee" on a rock....

OK, it's a really PATHETIC mind, but it's all I got....:rofl:....Lance
