Finally get to start

Hello all from Wisconsin…I purchased 3 Farmbots in fall and finally looking to implement them. The first location is a unique bed and am wondering the best way to construct the additional frame. The current bed is wrapped in a powder coated I-beam with a pitched floor, for drainage, running to a scupper. This is actually an architectural element over a stair case. I could compression fit wood between the web of the I-beam and construct on that or I could do a wood frame on the top. Also wondering the amount of clearance I want from the soil surface to the aluminum extrusion or track.

Hey Steve!

Awesome build! It would be best to build a wood frame atop the I-beams. Check out our documentation on installing the tracks and you will see.

Also when you put the FarmBot on there can you take a photo of your build and post it on the FarmBot forum.


Hi Steve,
Where about in Wisconsin are you? I’m just outside of Milwaukee. Did you get your build up and running this past summer?
