This Trebuchet is fully functional and ready to go! I built this out of steel over a number of years at no expense spared... Now i just dont have time or space to use this monster.
7.5m Tall, Designed for 1500kg counterweight. Comes with 1500kg worth of 10kg iron plates for easy loading and unloading. Comes with Electric winch and (more authentic medieval) manual rachet-style bar winch. Comes with all necessary steel cables, pulleys, chains, a sling, etc. Nothing to spend unless you want to give it a coat of paint.

The 3rd Picture is one with the old counterweight which i redesigned. The whole thing has been over-engineered so it is extremely strong and durable.

Perfect for medieval reenactments, film makers etc. or just someone who like throwing huge objects great distances


Check out these youtube.com clips of it in action with only 800kg in the counterweight

I designed it to fit on a tandem trailer (not included) so it can be taken anywhere.
Can be delivered within 250kms of Warragul @ $1 per kilometer.

This is something that you can keep for a lifetime if you look after it.


Feel free to email me with any questions.

Asking $3500, i spent a hell of alot more on it than that, not to mention the countless hours spent working on it.

Wow, what a piece of kit! I can think of several individuals I would want to catapult out of that thing..... :evilaugh:

Good luck with the sale, I do hope it goes to someone who just likes throwing huge objects over great distances.
