I've never posted a photo of my farm welds...[axle] looks like its welded solid from on top?
This was a farm welded project (looks like it anyway) its not terrible bad but its crude and functional like it needs to be and not pretty. :laughing:
I have a couple more thoughts. First, if that trailer is clumsy to move around and the driveshaft angle is too extreme, what about putting the generator on a little Harbor Freight 40x48 trailer. (under $200). At 125 lbs empty, those are as easy to move around as a garden cart. I like mine so well that I just bought another (used, $30) to mount a watering tank on. These seem like the perfect size to mount things on.
Second, is there a need to brace that trailer against the pto's torque? I see strange fittings on the front of your trailer and wonder if those were for torque-resisting feet. Maybe a calculation of ft-lbs would reveal if there is enough torque to lift the trailer.
