  • Custom 6061 XMT Weld Cart (Not 56k friendly)

    Before photos.....







    Initially it looked goofy, I will admit, kinda tall and spindly. But I had a long term plan firmly in place and I am VERY happy to say that it is finally complete.

    One very important thing I have learned in building custom "stuff" ahead of time is that published dimensions by the manufacturer are guestimates at best. It really is best to wait until you have the product in hand. Thus we had to use spacers here and there, or totally rework the cart. That wasn't really an option. As such, the cart is not perfect, yet even so I don't think I could be any happier with how it turned out.

    Finished version.....





    I am really proud of how this turned out.....best estimate is around 20k in equipment.

    I would be very happy to answer any questions about this cart. I believe the details stand out and it works very well in our shop.

        I hope Miller is paying attention, because this is how an XMT cart should look.

        You have so many options and possible configurations with that power source that the OEM cart just doesn't cut it. Not enough room. That's why we built our own.

        In the interest of fairness, if Miller did build this cart, they likely would have to sell it for $5,000.
