    Default built a tonka trailer

    I built a trailer for my son's dump truck and couldn't wait any longer to give it to him. It has fold down ramps, 4 tie down points, 2 axles with duals, and a jack which I need to weld a handle on.

    It is a lot heavier than any toy I've seen at the store so you may be right. I want to build some screw type binders and chains next.

    Oh, you make me miss the days when my boys were that size. That is a great present that he will someday give his son / daughter.
    One suggestion since your son is so young. You might want to put a piece of slip on rubber molding all around the top lip, so when he falls on it it won't cut him. You can pull it off when he gets a llittle bigger.

    Great suggestion! He has a bruise on his back from falling on it after 10 minutes of ownership. :-) I will install some of the strips like you can put on the edge of an automobile door tomorrow.

    I'd like to build a heavy duty bulldozer to haul on it someday. He got a plastic dozer for christmas that looks cool but won't be pushing anything except legos.
