    Default Homemade Woodhaulers

    Last night at work, while reading in the welding section, I was looking back at some of my previous attachments and posts on this forum, and I realized that I never posted any pictures of the woodhauling trailers that we have built.

    Whenever we do a project like this, we like to take pleanty of pictures along the way to illustrate the build. It may help some of you out in the future if you like building things yourself. Feel free to steal any Ideas

    And if you are wondering why They are built the way they are, or are wondering why we didnt use "this instead of that", well, its because both of these were built with scrap steel we already had. I am a hoarder I dont throw away ANY usable steel, no matter how small. Except for drill shavings. I havent found a good use for them yet

    Anyway, on to the pics. There are MANY.

    The first pic shows the frame tacked to the axle. The frame rails are 3" x 5" x 3/8" angle. it already had the one cross peice and the flat plate on it. It was a skid that a robot was delivered on where I used to work. We saved it for just this purpose

    The last couple are some shots of welds. They are a little blurry (camera phone). 7014 with the AC welder

    Dana 44 front for an axle. With 35x12.50 tires for easy rolling through the woods

    We welded a peice of angle to the drag link and then to the frame to keep the tires straight.

    Here we had to change the hitch from the origional design. It was just too high.

    On to the next trailer.

    Donor axle was a Dana 60. But we wanted a wider trailer, so we cut the differential out and widened it a bit.

    Hey,
    Nice trailer, very much like one we use here for firewood and hauling moose out of the mountains. Is that a 3/4 ton axle? Just wondering why you didnt cut the rear end out and join the axles with pipe. The axles dont really do anything except transmit torque to the hubs.

    Hey, sorry about that. Some of your post didnt come up initially, I see you did cut the axle out. It looks so much like ours...

    Some more shots. This is all I got so far. This trailer currently has a flip up end gate. We have yet to put sides on it. We dont use it that much cause we have the other two trailers, but we had the steel so we built it anyway.
