  • a frame coupler

    Whats up guys, i need a new a frame coupler welded onto the front of my trailer. how much does somthing like that cost?

    What size welder would work for that if i thought about doing it myself.

    What is the weight rating on the trailer? Does the old one need removing & the new welded on or is there damage from jackknifing etc.?

    An hour or two labor depending. Depending on weight rating of trailer I would say minimum size would be a 180 amp mig machine or a 150 amp stick machine.

        With all due respect if you have to ask such a basic question pay a pro to have it done, lot of liability involved with trailer repairs.
