    Default The simple way to turn your trailer around

    Been working on this job here at the lake for a few months now and had a large load of red iron on the trailer and had to drive down the driveway head first with no room to turn around. The drive way is over 200 yards long so backing up with the vantage welder blocking the rear window would have been a challenge. Its good to have friends. Thanks Steve, Don

    Your missing the point. This post was meant to be humorous Besides driving a load of steel down a steep drive with snow and ice without your electric brakes hooked up would not be fun. Trust me know.

    Yeah, there's enough seriousness from 9-5. I enjoy the technical threads, but the light-hearted and personal ones are what make you want to come back and keep reading stuff!! I had a load hang on the trailer once and picked it up by accident...does that count??

    Has any one seen that piece of earth moving equipment that has spider legs as well as wheels. It can stand up and walk away on very bad terrain, or use it's wheels to work on smooth ground, just build your trailer that way. It's the 21st Century and cars can now parallel park by themselves, so why can't we have a spider drive to turn a trailer around?

    Actually if I had a truck, I would put a hitch on the front of it as well as the traditional one in the rear.

    But we can dream of these things and build them and become rich.
