  • Welding Trailer/welding skid

    I am new to the forum, but have been a long-time admirer of many of your fab. projects. I scoured the forum for welding trailer ideas and what I tried to do was put together a trailer that fit my needs. I am a veterinarian by trade, but ever since high school shop class, I have loved to fabricate equipment. I have a strong agriculture background and help with the family farm when I have time. I built this rig to help with farm repairs and to oneday build pipe and cable corrals in the pastures we own.

    I have been using it with a West Texas paint job for about a year and finally painted it last week. As you will note, it is not a Miller sitting on it, but I have a 250X I used for the construction of the project.

    I wanted a skid mounted welder I could take off and slide in the back of a short bed pickup, which is why the welder and torch unit is so compact. The lower sliding drawer was something I really wanted to incoorpirate and it is working beautifully. Many of you will likely frown on my welding lead reels, but I am not a pipeline welder, nor am I a professional, and they work great for what I am doing. The table has a 1/2" top and below is a drawer where I keep my chop saw. I hope this helps anyone thinking about building a tailer or a skid.

    Obviously a truck mouted welder would have been handier, however I didn't have a truck sitting around and with my luck it wouldn't start when I needed it. The fire extinguisher is the only thing missing and believe me it will be mounted soon.


    Thanks again for sharing your information with all of us.

        What model is the machine? I have a 210 and its about my favorite portable, noisey but works really well.

          I've been thinking about trailer ideas too. With a shortage of funds, I ended up mounting a Trailblazer in the bed of my pickup. It takes up so much room I barely have room for other tools or metal.

          Plus I worry about how long it will last bouncing down these crappy California roads.

            I should have said, I worry about how long it will last if it were in a trailer bouncing down the roads.
