    From what I can see in the pictures, your welding trailer appears to be very nice. CLEAN and uncluttered. I like that. Fit and finish seem nice. Looks good with the Miller on there.

    I like the fact that you "recycled" and used what you had at hand. I am somewhat of a crow or packrat myself, and ususally have a tickle trunk of goodies stashed somewhere that I call upon from time to time.

    Others will come along and start with the "Where's this? and What about that?" and you'll get lots of "Creative Input". As long as you have thought out your project, and the trailer fits YOUR application, I say nicely done.

    The only thing that looked slightly out of place to me, was that the reach or tongue of the trailer seemed to be fairly short, and the trailer may pull a little better, or you could turn sharper, if it were longer.

    As stated....If the trailer fits YOUR application...Nicely done.

    Almost Finished Welding Trailer

    Hi Everyone.

    I have been lurking around this board for some time. I have enjoyed reading everyones posts. So much useful information in one place and some comedy too. Some of you guys are nuts!!! Well I finally decided on posting something I have been working on. I guess I'm just shy.

    I purchased a used 225 Bobcat to add to my collection machines. The machine had very low hours but was very cosmetically challenged. I will say the machine had lots of "character".

    I would also need a means for transport. As I'm hoping to get some more "mobile" side work.

    I decided on building a trailer instead of mounting in my truck. The primary reason was I like too fish and sometimes leave truck sitting at boat landings for extended amounts of time. I would hate for someone to wreck/steal my machine or kids to play with it and get electrocuted or something.

    Most of the materials I had laying around and modified them. The toolbox is off of an old tractor trailer I cut off the steps and such. The aluminum floor is cut up street signs. Steel from an old pressure washer and some freebie hubcaps I found. The reel is a aluminum homemade reel. You get the idea, I like freebies!!!
