Description

With the flange and pipe installed, I mounted the carriage to the base by sliding the 3/4" pipe from the carriage into the larger diameter pipe of the chair support attached to the base of the digger, see the picture for an example of what this looks like. The base is sturdy, but we noticed that our 3-year-old moved it when he stood up to dig a particularly heavy load of sand. This didn’t impact the operation of the lever arm and taught him cause and effect. To ensure the base remains stable, you can weigh it down or bury it slightly in the sand. Reeves International The Big Dig and Roll Ride-On Working Excavator with Wheels: If you want your child to be able to move their sand digger around, consider one with wheels like the Reeves International The Big Dig and Roll Ride-On Working Excavator with Wheels. It is a little bit more expensive, but if you want to use the digger in a yard, the wheels would really up the realistic factor and provide a lot more opportunities for your child to dig. Unless you have very compact sand that is easy to wheel around on, the wheels are probably not worth the extra cost to use at the beach.

The Higley Sand digger holds up to 400 lbs of weight and turns 360 degrees. This little digger will build arm strength along with hand eye coordination. My son and our dog used to have a competition to see who could dig the bigger holes. (Sorry son, but Sam the dog won. Every time.) And I’ve had more than one bed of daffodils upturned by an overly exuberant child bent on destroying my freshly planted flowers. Even now, every time we pass a construction zone, my kids, especially my youngest son, are fascinated by these big rig machines. I can only think that he's imagining that he’s pretending to be a construction worker, making his way all the way to the center of the earth. Or maybe he just wants to make a hole. Who knows? I should get him to dig a hole to replant some flowers... Another popular free standing play structure is a sand digger. Young excavators love spending hours crafting the perfect sand or dirt creations as they are able to actually move the earth with these unique playground structures. Help kids discover their inner engineer with fun and colorful sand diggers! When heading to the beach with kids, you usually need a bagful of beach toys to keep them occupied. Building sandcastles can be as simple as pushing a pile of sand together, or it can get as complex as creating an elaborate moat and drawbridge. If your child wants to take their sandcastle construction to the next level, the Big Dig Sandbox Digger is a great addition for preschool-aged kids who love construction.Digger wasps tend to nest in soil, usually in open sandy areas or vertical banks of light soil or sand. In areas of bare ground with several female digger wasps nesting in the same area, nesting holes may be numerous. The spoil heaps left beside their holes by some species look a little like a volcano. Solitary bees nest in similar situations to solitary Digger wasps and nest aggregations between them are hard to distinguish when there are no adult insects about. Digger wasps are a type of solitary wasp meaning that females make a nest for her own young. This nesting behaviour is different to social wasps, as female social wasps co-operate with their sisters and their mother in the maintenance of a colony that may well contain hundreds or even thousands of workers as well as a queen.

At Playground Outfitters, we’re committed to helping our customers by designing playground solutions that meet the needs of the children they serve, all while staying within their budget. Free standing play structures like swings, climbers, and merry-go-rounds are a great way to add value and variety to your play area. The weight limit of The Big Dig Sandbox Digger is 110 pounds. This means that our kids will be able to use this toy for years before they get too heavy for the seat. We expect that they will outgrow it based on their height and how comfortable they can be on the seat before reaching the weight limit. With the carriage built and the seat attached the next step was to mount the the 3/4" pipe flange. The flange was mounted to the underside of the carriage, roughly in the center. After the flange was installed the 3/4" pipe was screwed into it to create the male end of the pivot. Once all the boards were separated I turned my attention to nail removal. I knew that I'd be cutting and reassembling the boards so I wanted to make sure that absolutely all of the nails where out as it only takes one nail to ruin a perfectly good saw blade.

The easiest way to build the sand digger is from the ground up so I suggest starting with the base. To make the base you will first need to create a half lap joint in two of the stringers so that they can be combined to make a "+" shape. To make the half lap joint I used a table saw but you could also do it with a hand saw by making a series of closely spaced cuts in the middle of the stringers that go half way through the width of the stringer and then using a chisel to hog out any remaining wood. The general life pattern of a female Digger wasp involves preparing a nest, provisioning it with prey as food for her offspring, laying her eggs and then sealing up the nest. When preparing a nest a female will dig a burrow using spiny brushes on her legs. This burrow may be up to 30cm deep or more depending on the species. The tunnel usually branches at the end and each branch will have a separate egg laid in it. The energetic cost to the female burrowing so deep is repaid as an advantage to her offspring. The surface of bare ground has a desert-like microclimatic condition. By day the bare ground gets very hot in the sun and at night the surface can cool very fast. By digging a deep tunnel the changes in temperature are less severe and this helps the eggs develop. Sorry to make you go through all of that work building the sand digger only to make you take it apart, but it is much easier to paint after you have all the parts cut and are sure that they work together. Note that painting is optional and isn't terribly necessary as pallet wood is already treated to endure the elements, but painting does help your project to look finished and polished and the added protection the paint provides will help your project to look better for longer.

We also have sand diggers that are ADA accessible so guests in wheelchairs can take part in the excavating fun too. These sand diggers have the same control arms, but without the attached swivel seat. To store The Big Dig Sandbox Digger, we chose to fold up the lever arm and keep it in our garage. It’s possible to disassemble for storage, but it would add an extra step each time you want to use it, and we didn't want to lose the hardware. If you have space, we highly recommend storing it assembled with other sports equipment or outside toys. After feeding on the prey the larvae will pupate and eventually emerges from the nest as an adult wasp. This adult wasp will then look for a mate and if the wasp is a female, she will begin to prepare and provision a nest for its own eggs. Coil Spring (Optional): To create spring assisted lift for the boom arm so that young diggers won't struggle with the weight, (See step 14: Finishing Touches). Our 3-year-old needed some help with the controls initially. He moved the actual digger almost as soon as he sat down but needed a demonstration of how to swivel in the chair. Once he saw it a couple of times and practiced, he mastered the lever controls and swiveling in the chair to move sand around. If you plan on giving this toy to a child younger than 3, you will probably need to help them manage the levers.Flange Bolt Covering: The bolts that attached the flange to the carriage were unsightly so I covered them with a small piece of wood.
