    Default Hurricane Bobcat

    A few years back, hurricane Rita forced me to go out and get a generator. Little did my wife know i was coming home with a new miller bobcat. Not much choice really. The lws was the only place that had any generators left, and they only had two of these. I've been working on this trailer for it off and on for a while. Its almost complete, still have to put a trailer jack, bottle rack and lead rack. Its compact, ballanced and pulls great. I have not built much as far as welding goes, just a few home projects here and there, although this one did turn out real nice. Here she is--take a look...

    Thanks for the compliment. I just orderd a 30'x40' prefab metal building for my shop. will be starting on the slab work this week. will also be adding a plasma cutter and a mig welder soon after the shop goes up. looking at the spectrum625 for the plasma - have not decided on the mig yet...maybe the millermatic 212

    Smile IMHO - I think . . . .

    I think the Millermatic 252 would be worth the extra $$$.
