    Default sevice bed

    I built this bed over a year ago. I used 14G for the tool boxes, 1/8'' deckplate for the floor, and 3/16'' for the workbench. mounted just under the bench is receiver tube so I can put the vice on and off. I lost the pic that shows the rear of the bed, but I have a 5hp gas air compressor mounted in it. The welder is a Miller trailblazer 280. I could only work on it part time, so it took me about 2 years to finish.

    Hey, nice looking work there! I have a question... how do you get to the oil drain and filter to do a service on the Trailblazer? I thought of mounting mine the way you did, but I wanted access for doing a service easily. Mine is mounted on the rear of the flatbed, centered and facing rearward.

    Hi chaikwa, Thank you for the compliment. On the oil drain I use a hose that is 24'' long. I can reach the drain and the oil filter from reaching over the top. It is a tight squeeze, but not to bad.

    Thumbs up service truck - welder oil change

    Hi Chaikwa and trevwelder,
    If your welder/generator has a Kohler engine, Miller offers a remote oil drain and filter kit so you can change oil when the machine is mounted close to the cab of a truck. It remotes the filter and drain to the rear panel of the machine.
    You can check it out at www.Millerwelds.com/truck. That web site is dedicated to truck applications.

    Trevwelder, your truck does look nice.
