Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


OK so I bought a new tool trailer. Tools only no material ever. . . Yeah Right we all know that it will get filled up with trash and you wont be able to get to anything. Well I am going to try something different. A dense pack tool trailer. I special ordered a 5'x8' enclosed trailer added 1' height and side doors on both sides and a ramp on the back. The front 1/2 will be shelved to the ceiling with access only from the doors.
I have 3 types of storage
Systainers,
Brute boxes
Rigid boxes
They all map strangely together 3 Rigid boxes are the same sf foot print as 2 Brute boxes and 2 systainers are the same foot print as a Brute Box
Brute boxes will fit in a 11" high opening while Rigid and Sys 4 's will fit in a 13" tall space.
so here are some pics of the new trailer and my first couple shelving setups.
When I am finished the whole trailer will be full but accessible with every tool I use in 95% of my jobs.

How do you like it? I can't seem to deal with many tools in cases, except my track saw and few things.

I love a tall trailer and a ramp door . looks like some pullouts would be good on that side access.

I 've thought a lot of times a small trailer would work well if thought out.

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


I am taking the next couple days off and working on it to get it set up. and it is my birthday on Friday. I wanted a small trailer that I could access everything from standing on the outside. We use floor grinders that are several hundred pounds so I needed a ramp access in back for when I need to bring them to the jobsite. The next layer of shelves will be the wild one, it is the one that will house my big tile cutters, large dustless cup grinders and other tools that do not fit into any of the boxes that I am using. I will post more pics tomorrow.

Edco TG-10 10" Turbo Grinder
The TG-10 is four times faster than conventional grinders.
Production Rate:
10" Working width will grind approximately 400-500 square ft per hour at 1/16" with an Edco diamond disc
Grind wet or dry.
Rounded shroud allows you to grind within 1/2 of any vertical surface and also provides better dust control
Less torque on operator
Tapered roller bearings have improved seals for longer life and less maintenance.
Rigid Head Assembly Is Ideal For:
Grinding uneven expansion joints, high spots, joint curls and bridge decks
Removing coatings

It is a great grinder for residential It is not a planetary so it will not do hyper floors, but for prep it is the most aggressive that you can bring down a staircase while being able to run off a dryer outlet.
Grinding rough concrete surfaces

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


I went from a 14' single axle trailer to a 18' v nose tandem axle back in January, the back tires are wearing considerably faster than the front tires. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm sure the factory tires are the cheapest they can buy but I don't have any odd wear issues with any of my other tandem non enclosed utility trailers.

My 21' V Nose is doing that same thing. Actually broke the spring from the trailer frame on the far back of both sides just backing into a job one day. Weighed the trailer and it's far from weight capacity so I don't know. Making me mad though

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


How much weight is on the back part? The only way for the tires to wear like that is improper weight distribution or you have the tongue to high. It is a delicate balancing act between little tongue weight and not to much on a one side or the other. If you broke a spring, the weight is to high on that axle. You are going to have too weigh things and move them around, just cause you are under weight means nothing if you have 5k on back axle and 1k on front axle.

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


Also, if you are doing alot of sharp cornering it will wear the back tires as they slide when cornering sharp, the front ones roll and the trailer pivots on the front ones, makes the back tires slide. Also check your air pressure in each tire, make sure they are at recommended PSI.

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


Air pressures are checked regularly and as far as weight placement I would say if anything it would be a little heavy on the front not the back. I hope its just caused by turning on city streets and not an axle out of alignment.

Plus, the state police here told me to call them and they would let me know where their mobile weigh stations were going to be set up and they would be happy to weigh front/back/left/right of the trailer at no charge.

We have 6 Tandem axle trailers and they ALL wear the back tires much sooner than the fronts. It is because every time you turn the back tires just slide, and peel that rubber off. We have tried adjusting loads, raising the tongue (2 are gooseneck, 4 bumper pull) and adjusting tire pressures. All of this was a waste of time, just get used to the fact that once the rear tires are down to about 1/3 of treads, rotate all 4 and you will have about twice the amount of time, than if you don't rotate!

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


my rears would do the same, then with the new set of tires, i adjusted the hitch so that the trailer would ride level (was tongue low on the last set of tires) and now seems to be wearing evenly......

with the tongue low, the rears would drag around more, now they have closer to equal resistance before "giving out" and dragging

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


Just bought my first trailer this summer, a 7'x14' Titan by Stealth. This winters project will be to get it set up as a mobile tool box by the spring rush. I found some great videos by Ron Paulk about his trailer set up but this forum has had a TON of great tips too.

I'm upgrading from a converted GMC minivan I had decked out with shelves and storage so it's going to be a dramatic change.

I'll post progress shots as it comes together and try to make sure I give the proper shout outs for canabalised ideas

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


I want to keep my trailer above freezing overnights, to protect glue, paint, caulk, ect.
My space heaters lowest setting is 55f degrees, but for energy conservation I only want the heater to kick on at 35f degrees or so.
Has anyone integrated a feature like this in their trailer? I could use some ideas or a good off the shelf thermostat for this particular need.
