I have been lurking around this board for some time. I have enjoyed reading everyones posts. So much useful information in one place and some comedy too. Some of you guys are nuts!!! Well I finally decided on posting something I have been working on. I guess I'm just shy.
I purchased a used 225 Bobcat to add to my collection machines. The machine had very low hours but was very cosmetically challenged. I will say the machine had lots of "character".
I would also need a means for transport. As I'm hoping to get some more "mobile" side work.
I decided on building a trailer instead of mounting in my truck. The primary reason was I like too fish and sometimes leave truck sitting at boat landings for extended amounts of time. I would hate for someone to wreck/steal my machine or kids to play with it and get electrocuted or something.
Most of the materials I had laying around and modified them. The toolbox is off of an old tractor trailer I cut off the steps and such. The aluminum floor is cut up street signs. Steel from an old pressure washer and some freebie hubcaps I found. The reel is a aluminum homemade reel. You get the idea, I like freebies!!!
