    Default Some of my projects

    Seen here somewhere a guy asking about building a grain trailer. I end up building specialty trailers that can't be bought to fit our needs. Usually try to use something that can be adapted,or at least give a good starting point. This isn't a grain trailer,but you could start the same way. Rolled her out of the shop today.

    This one started life as a railroad container hauling frame. Since their containers are self supporting all they have for a trailer frame is a 4"x12" I-beam,with 1/4" flanges and a 3/16" web. Basically enough to connect the 5th wheel plate to the axles. But, you can buy them cheap. The axles are rated heavy enough,and the light frame makes a good jig for hanging steel. This was a 48'er,only needed a 40'.

    Sorry for the quality,snapped everything with the cellphone.

    This was a fun project in 100 degr. heat. Had to replace the cone on this mixing vatt. Since I had to manage this myself I constructed a small crane to help place the pieces. Also worked well to ride it around while welding the inside.

    Took about a week to finish it. Glad there were no leaks, I was half sick and went home early the last day.
