    I made the wheels so they fold up so I can just roll it on my 18 ft trailer . :)

    1 question. Will those little tires hold all that weight?

    Hoss , great eye , The small fold up tires are just to load and off load the skid empty . No they would not hold at all loaded . :)

    Oh, I thought it was a trailer you built to pull it with the truck to jobsites. Thought about just putting axles under it and pulling it?

    You've got about 6500 lb. riding on what looks like wheelbarrow wheels. And I hope your 18' trailer is low because I think your gonna bottom out.

    That is a sweet looking creation. Please let us know how it works out and get some pictures of it in action.
