    Smile Its all starting to make sense

    I found this - looks pretty neat although it may not work as well putting it on a trailer.....
    Let us know what you come up with - sounds like a neat project!

    Dave, I dont think I have any pics and the skids I made were fairly large but it will give you an idea. We have large leaf boxes at work to collect leaves during the fall, each box holds 12 yards so I made skids using 2 pieces of 4" x 8" tubing, laid these length wise with the box, then I welded 4' pieces of 2" x 1/4" angle in between the two pieces of tubing at about 2' intervals, I then added a 1' piece of angle on the outside of the tubing making the skid a little over 6' wide. I then bolted the plywood floor of the leaf box to the floor and blted the prefabbed sides up. It is easily loaded with any set of forks or forklift.

    We also have a 200 gallon herbicide sprayer on a 3" channel frame about 6' long. We simply welded some tubing to the side of that to pick it up with the forks.

    Send me a pick of what you are working on and I may be able to give you some more ideas or hints. In the meantime, I'll see if any pics are floating around of what I did.

    I've been eyeballing the skids on Ace Manufacturing's site..... NICE Stuff.

    Another site to check out:

    In Edmonton:

    In Calgary:

    http://www.arcfusionwelding.com/fabrication-shop.htm

    The list can go on forever.

    If you have the time to check back in the archives (when they're available) several of the members here have skid units and have posted pictures.
    Later,
