What type of flooring do you plan to use? Looks good so far!

My first suggestion would be to put the springs on the bottom, not the top :laugh:

Just make sure to leave enough room between the wheels and the wheel wells. Seem that every trailer we you have a good load on it that the tires rub on the wheel wells.

Daner

:dancing: Yes the springs are on the bottom...with a 6" drop axils...3500 lbs
The floor will be 2x8 PT
No angle Iron here all tube
Storage rack at the front for chain saws gas etc.
If anyone has a close up pic of a trimmer /blower rack it would help me in the design of that
Theres plenty of room between the tires and the frame...I,m bending the fenders on a home made brake

Those cages in front aren't going to be easy to get equipment in/out? We put our front cage at a height so you sit the blower on the door and take the straps off your arms. We also want to keep stuff low to reduce wind load so trimmers are on the sides along with backpacks for sprayers.

We also want to keep stuff low to reduce wind load so trimmers are on the sides along with backpacks for sprayers.I had the cadge door hinged at first ...that when you opened it it stay flat...with 2 small chains helpinh it
But i could not reach in far enough....So i changed the hinges so when its open it swings all the way down
It seems to be at a good hight now...I will have to put some expanded metal were you stand
So far its comming along good ...Ishould be ready for primer on tuesday
Thanks for all the comments...Send more:usflag: :canadaflag: :drinkup: Cheers or send me a pic of what you have there

Hey Danner, what brand band saw is that? How do you like it? I'm looking for something a little more precise than a chopsaw.

Daner

Hey Danner, what brand band saw is that? How do you like it? I'm looking for something a little more precise than a chopsaw.That Band saw is a craftex...It has done alot of jobs for me and i highly recomend it to bad its from Japan,,,But it Kicks ass
If you notice i do have a Chop saw in the back ground...and it never gets used...All they do is make fiber dust all over your shop... u can set all your angles on the band saw as well
Trick #1 use a Bie metal blade...they last and cut fast
If you want i will take a cloe up for you of that saw
Cheers

Please take a pic if you don't mind. The chop saws are ok but what bothers me is the blade flex and less than square cuts. Nice trailer btw.

Danar, first off your doing great, my buddy welds and I can appreciate how much work has gone into it all ready.

Now, why did you put in 3500lb axles? Your building a tank with all that tubing, it must way close to 1800lbs, that will give you about 5000lbs to play with.

I (with my welding buddy) modified my Mid Atlantic 6x10 to be more useful and still have lots to go but it may give you some more ideas.... tarp tie-downs every 16", camper drop-downs so you can leave the trailer and still unload it, heavy duty in-floor tie-downs for equipment, 2x4 wells so you can quickly put up sides for leaves, 12" solid sides for keeping in mulch and soil, Trimmer Trap accessories, lots of lighting and reflective tape. I still have to replace my 3500lb axle with a 5000lb w/brake, move my lights higher up so I stop busting them backing into things at the dump, even more lights(work/reverse halogens).

Keep up the great work and posting the pictures.

Oh if you do plan on a bobcat sitting on the deck I would put some box running running front to back where the tires would be.

03-12-2006, 03:56 PM
So far I really like the overall design of the trailer, and love your shop which was the first thing that caught my attention.

You mentioned that you are building it strong enough to haul a skid steer, but I noticed that you only have breaks on one axel. Why not have breaks on both axels to help stop really heavy loads? I'm sure you've already taken this into consideration; since you obviously know what you're doing. I just wanted to get some insight from your perspective.

One other question. I noticed that you have 10 cross members, all of which are square tubing. Would it have been better to work in 3 I-beam type crossmembers to make it more structurally sound to handle the extra weight, or will the square tubing be enough? I know that's more of a question for an engeneer, but for all I know you may have an engeneering degree or had an engeneer draw up your plans. Once again, just wanted some of your insight. Thanks.

Yes you are right This Gurl will Weigh In at aprox 1850 lbs
The 150 Nh skid steer that i have weighs 4500lbs...the reason that i went with the 35oo axils was cost of the axils...and if i have to hall anything real heavy I Have a tri axil flat deck
Hey the ties thats a good Ideia:dancing:

an I beam hase only what we call 1 leg the tubing has 2


The vertical section of the I beam is called the web...Ther for the square tube has 2 webs
bUT IN iBEAM SHAPES THEY SOMTIMES CAN BE STRONGER BECAUSE OF THE RADIUS...turning into the flanges...sorry bout the caps....i have never seen a 2" I beam...I know with my tri axil i used 3" chanel but its alot heveier than the tubing that i put at 12" c-c this trail er is at 16" centers...With the 2x8 on to i don'nt think anyting will bust through
Thanks for the comment

Thanks for the comment

You are partly correct. If thicknesses are equal the square tubing will be a little stronger in bending than the I-beam but by less than 10%. Most of the strength of a beam in bending is from the material farthest away from the nuetral axis which in this case would be the top and bottom portions. The vertical web adds little strength. I-beams were first developed for economic reasons because they provide the most strentgh with the least amount of material.

Nice looking trailer by the way

One thing that i noticed which may become an issue is the spacing of the supports on the back gate. Is your expanded metal pretty heavy? I think loading a SS on that is going to bend/bow the rear gate between the supports. Otherwise...it looks awesome!

If you lookk at the back gate there are 2 struts...2" tube...now they are at the same c-c as my skid steer and thats 4 ' the 72" ZTR will be closee on that center as well
an easy way to figure the strength of your gate as you build it is...takd 2 secs of tube angel or what ever you want to use....lay them up on a couple of blocks ...then fire up the skid steer and run the front tires up it...look for deflection...Its what i call back yard engineringps the expanded metal that i used was 9 raised and yaa its tough stuff
Thanks for your input

Nice trailer I most admit nothings better then custom built...!
Once built a 4x8 all made of wood even (tongue) except for the steel axle and the carriage bolts, holding it to the 2x4 wood frame ...P.S. don't try this at home...
It could hold a bob-cat we used it for a few months delivering Sears lawn tractors before, they went to a national delivery service....
