    Thanks,

    The trailer is for tendering our 1600 gal. floaters (spray rigs) in the field. In the past we'd take our retired over-the-road trucks,and drop a 3200 gal. tank on the tractor for a handy twin screw nurse truck for the field. But with the cost of diesel fuel we're starting to build semi trailers that'll require half the trips.





    This trailer has 4-1600 gal. compartments,with the ability to recirculate individually,or transfer from tank to tank. The 4"x3" pump is hydr. driven,the plumbing stainless. On the center deck we can load herbicide and pesticide totes that can be metered through the inductor as the machines are loaded. On the front deck is a diesel tank for refueling the rigs,and a water tank (again with a small hydr. pump). The tanks and all the plumbing have to be self draining,as we run through the winter.

    Built this lowboy last year for hauling one of our rowcrop spray rigs. This trailer was an old oilfield flatbed we had parked in the hedge. Stripped all the weight off we could,then hung the ramps,and mounted a 3200 gal. tank so a one man show can tender himself. Again there's an inductor,but this time used a gas powered pump so a truck with a wet kit isn't needed.

    There are turn posts at the rear for help lining up the rig as it loads. You can be off 4" and they will slide the rig straight as you drive on. The side rails and ramps remove for trailer wheel access. The front wheels drop into a cradle,then 2-4" ratchet straps suck the rig down. Loads and unloads in just a few minutes.

    Whenever these old trailer chassis are used,the axles,brakes,airlines,lighting and wiring all get redone. Then sandblasted to bare metal before painting.

    An overhead project,

    Added two cone tanks to this structure,after extending the main frame. Above,welded up a subframe to hold a platform I built ahead of time. The new platform carries shaker screens,and shop built chainveyers and beltveyers.

    A monster garage project,

    This started out as a rusty dry spreader. How it looked after stripping it down and lengthening the frame 4'.



    This is what it looks like now. Everything but the large tank and rolling chassis had to be fabricated oversized. I even had to custom build the nozzles. It's a one of a kind,with 3 times the capacity than anything on the market.




    These vids will explain what it does.
