View Full Version : Irrigation Trailer in Progress

02-01-2006, 09:23 AM
Here in the off season I've been doing a lot of welding. A friend of mine owns a landscape company and asked me to modify his trailer to haul irrigation supplies along witht the trencher.
This pic illustrates the basic setup except it will be on both sides of the trailer.

and another shot of bins sitting on the trailer

Today I hope to finish mounting all bins and add the 3 racks to each side.

That'll come out real nice. Its great to have it built the way you want it. Is it done, or more to come?

i am wondering if the pipe racks go too high?
i would think it would be a real pain to get pipe in and out of the top racks??
have u used it yet????

more than not they will use the lower racks. The uppers are high I guess but it's no thang. Besides your usually putting 20 - 24 long pieces on the rack so you've got plenty of slack.

I delivered it last week. The customer loved it. Said it was exactly what he wanted. So I guess thats the answer.

I hope im not missing something...but- How do you keep the longer pieces from sliding out through vibration or acceleration? Good work, nice looking.
