    Looks like it works pretty well for you.
    It looks like it still leaves you with a lot of truck box space.
    How much do you notice the high center of gravity when you have the skid on?

    Looks nice! I can't tell from the pics what holds everything in place. Do you pin it after you set it on? One thing I don't like is the acetylene laying down, yes I know it is tilted but it should be upright.

    Good pictures.Are you not concerned that the boxes are too close to the rear of the welders and block the ventilation?

    I think that is a shielding gas bottle, green tag with silver brown paint, also looks like a flowmeter attached.

    Looks good but why so high??

    If you have a fork truck to lift in and out why not keep it alittle close to the floor, i can understand if you need the room to store matereial but lift it out when your done.

    Default ok

    well now i caught on i see you have two welders on that rig...............

    why the need for two??

    you could save yourself lots of space and fuel cost by maybe running like a CST280/250 off the front of your newer 250, i guess it just depends on how much power you need on the second arc?? or even like a maxstar 200 draw very little and work great.......

    just my two cents.

    i have a TB302 and i have run a XMT 304 off the front and run both machines on 5/32 rod all day once....

    That is a great set up. Easy on-easy off and lots of space beneath for supplies....

    Good idea!

    No problem with COG having the dual wheels even pull the forklift in the photo loaded. Previous truck had a flat bed and if I wanted to carry anything over 4 feet had to pull a trailer. Not only can I carry item 8' long I can lock the tailgate.
