  • Trailer Pics

    I promised my trailer pics and finally found them. We had an old generator trailer sitting out back of the shop. I looked at it and knew I could revamp it to current needs. This was one of my first larger projects about 4 years ago. I now see things I would have done different, I guess thats normal. I took this old trailer and cut the 4" u-channel apart at all the welds and then proceeded to use the channel to help build the main part of my frame. It measures 4' X 8' with a 3' tongue. It is rated at 7000 lb with electric brakes. The tailgate is 6' with springs and a cable assisted lift. It is used to haul a 3000 lb blacktop roller along with necessary tools. The rack on the front holds all the tools, you may be able to see the upright tubes. The deck is 2 X 8 rough cut oak.

      Ken,
      Now this is what those drug busters need so they can jump out real quick
      They could even mount a 50 cal on the front.


      nice trailer

        I never kept time on the hours, I just grabbed a number out of thin air at registration time. I worked on it over the Winter months in between other jobs.

                LOL Yep, the trailer does look very nice. I was also wondering about those high tech stands. NO, I'm not going to post pics of some of the things I've used. ROFL

                    whats wrong with that? should work fine as long as ya don't have too many cuts to make.
                    is that kinda like painting over a propane space heater.
                    thanks for the help
                    ......or..........

                    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

                      KBar, I always like to see people turn a pile of cr@p into something useful. Nice job, professional looking work. Dave
