  • getting a welder finally! wheel question though

    so a guy i know is selling me his miller trailblazer 302.

    i have used this machine before working for another guy doin a bunch of field work on a condo and a school. when i worked for him, his trailblazer had a set of like "off road" wheels on it, which made it easy for me to roll it around the jobsite. some people i have asked have never heard of anything like this.

    one freind said lincoln makes a wheel kit, and it was probly custom fabbed to fit on my old boss's miller,. i have looked and not found much of anything. i might just have to make my own set somehow.

    anyone know of a wheel kit type thing i can buy to handle the weight of this welder?

    What about the solid tires used on wheelbarrows? The type you can drive a nail into and they don’t go flat. Or maybe some ATV tires and wheels.

      Yup...Just go to the top of your screen and click on products, then click engine drives, then click trailblazer, then click accessories and there is a bunch of that stuff. Just make sure you are on the Trailblazer accessories and not the normal accessories section.

        I have seen people make a cart for one out of an old red wagon

          Wow that is an enormous machine to be wheeling around on a cart. I hope the cart has brakes or something. I can just see that thing get going down an incline. It would hit like a small car. I have only seen those carried around by trucks. The 2010 F150 has some nice wheel options too.

              I think the one you're thinking of can be found by clicking on "Industries & Interests" tab, then "Farm & Ranch," and there's a picture of a Trailblazer sitting on a set, with an MM 180 and a rancher working on a corral.

                      Yikes For prices like that you'd have to be crazy not to fab your own.

                        I would like to see electric powered wheels; powered by the trailblazer - and maybe a tractor seat on top.

                              Yeah, good idea!
