    Oh Yeah! You have a fine trailer in the rough there. Axles looks very strong and you could build a small bridge with the rectangular box steel!

    Pls post more pix as you start the project.

    The biggest thing is to make sure you have good trailer brakes, As far as hydraulice, I would use a gas engine and set it up like a log splitter, That was the best move that I ever made with mine.

    I never have to worry about the battery being charged.

    Lots of decisions to make still. It's going to be a slow process as a spare time project but I've made some progress on the trailer. All welds done with my 180 mig using .035 flux wire. My settings were max amperage and 4 wire speed. Any input or ideas are welcomed. here are some pictures...

    Looking good so far from looking at the pictures on my phone. Why use flux core?

    I'm using flux core to hopefully get better penetration on my welds. That is the way I understand it anyway. Would mig be suitable in this application?
