Hey guys!!

So, a little while back, I found a cool little trailer on this site made by Gtractorfan, and I decided to make my own version, hopefully to sell when I'm done.

A trip to the city for steel and a few hours later, Its almost ready to go. Its been a really fun project, even if I did screw everything up in the second video, but I'll get that straightened out here sooner or later.

Anyway, I just wanted to share the first two parts of the three part series... Hope everyones enjoying their week, I'll have another video here before too long Smile

If you had left the tubes open, it would be good weasel habitat. For some reason, they can't resist playing in a tube.

Lanse,

Once again you've created a really informative, enjoyable video. I greatly admire your ability and eagerly await part 3.

Thanks for your work.

Good neat job. I agree with closing the ends of the tubes. They will collect wasps nests when left open.

You may still have water get in the tubes. When welding tubing closed, the heated air will build up pressure and, on the last weld, will blow a small hole in the melted steel weld. At least that has been my experience when welding galvanized pipe gates. I think you can let the assembly cool and tack weld the hole closed if desired.

I have a hard time with your videos for some reason... Will you post just a normal pic of the finished product please???

Like the others said about closing holes, it's a good idea. However, if it's tuff, Bubba (and me) can be pretty creative.... If one of them open ends has the remote possibility of receiving a slide in (and pin) modification like a saw, meedeater, saw, axe, etc box or mount, leave it open and get you some of the plastic stoppers to plug them....

Hurry up with the pics.....

Lance,
Just cut the hitch beam flush with the front of trailer and add it to the back. The back of your trailer will become the front and your axle supports will be in the correct position. Seems easier then removing axle supports. Less co-lateral damage

I didn't close the ends of mine and haven't had trouble with varmits, but that would make it more finished. Last fall I moved this buckeye tree and it survived. I had a bunch of weight on the front of the trailer. I made a trench next to the tree and pulled a strong wire under the roots to cut it loose. I have some extrra old Simplicity 2 wheel tractor hubs and wheels, pulling the clip pins lets you remove the wheels in seconds. I underslung the frame to the axle, welded and Ubolted to make it lower and easier to load big pieces.

I watched you start welding those axle mounts on the frame... Then I knew what you were talking about. Serious facepalm moment for sure.
