build a rotisserie?

Postby 1southcarolina » Tue Apr 26, 2016 12:25 am

I want to build a rotisserie to work on my E-10 and my E-12. I would like to see some ideas others have come up with. I want one that I can roll in a gravel work area as I do not have a garage, and my tool shed is way too small. I would like it to be able to raise both ends at the same time thru some type of mechanism, and to be able to lock it in many rotation points. I would like to be able to store it in a small foot print so it would need to be able to made compact or have to be reassembled easily.Thanks for the help as I look forward to hearing and seeing your ideas.

How about building it onto a trailer?

Pedro, I like the trailer Idea, however I have no place that I could do that in.

1southcarolina, can you weld? I'm thinking that a pair of harbor freight trailer tongue jacks could be welded to box pipe feet. Add a bolt-in spreader bar at the bottom, and a pair of stab mounts welded to old trailer hubs at the tops. Does that wake sense?

Pedro, I cannot weld, but work for a off road RV shop (www.tigeradventurevehicles.com) and have welders there. I can somewhat envision what you mean. It's the first real Idea I have gotten. Thanks for your time...

There have been some rotisserie discussion over the years on elec-trak.com. A search for "rotisserie" should show some ideas.

As far as dealing with a gravel work area, I think pneumatic tired casters would be a good solution.

Here's a link to a video of one made by Burt in 2008 I think...

You might have to made some modification, since the the small frame ( E8, E10M ) tractors do not have the slots in the frame for the "stabbers" like the large frame tractors do.

I built one from parts from Harbor Freight. Here is a good thread on the old site:

Jeff, how do you rotate the tractor to work on the underside?
