Our family business trailers all have ramp doors. I trip on them cables almost every dam time I go near them.

The sidewalk side cable on my ramp door broke two years ago. I haven't replaced it and haven't missed it. The remaining street side cable seems to be doing the job just fine.

I have given this alot of thot as well. I already have a good systainer setup 38 or so---But the notion of rolling kits appeals greatly to me.

here are some thots.
1 build each unit to interlock with the others to make work surfaces
2make them to house and operate with systainer (or other system)
3 make them a complete self contained kit ie the dust collection kit would have the vac, the cyclone, and all hoses on-board.
4 make the kit portable to the job .. your Framing kit would be on larger lawn tractor tires so you could pull it around a lawn

here is a place to look for cart/kit ideas http://www.filmtools.com/equipmentcarts.html

my thoughts exactly, ive been playing on sketchup and have designed a few rollling cabinets that i think will be very similar to what you suggested. I think if you have 2 the same size , once there ouo on site, you back them up to one another, lock them solid and you have a large solid work surface with your tools on the shelves on either side. Have the other setup to work with miter saw station or outfeed for table saw. I feel like you could really bring your shop to the jobsit this way. Ill try and get the sketchup pics up soon. Im stuck at the fire hall for a few days.

Added fenders, changed my taillights to insets, added astragals to the doors and put on some ladder racks to my drawer based trailer.

Maleko,

hopefully this picture helps, I assume you have a makita 18v li set up? if you do it like I did it will fit the 1.5 and the 3 amp batteries. I made this rack to hold 6 batteries.

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


cant believe I have not found it sooner, recent purchase 6x12 v nose with side and rear ramp door. Did the usual shelves but made a storage pocket on one side for full sheet dry wall siding or ply. Also did a small stack rig off that for 2x4 and trim and other misc stuff. Just finished the shelves and painted the walls today, floors tommorrow. Can't wait to post pics.

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


Hey how are you guys attaching things to the doors of your trailers? I've got some metal hooks that I bought and ran some 1 and 3/8" screws (probably about an inch went into the door) and with just a single extension cord or air hose, I've already lose two hooks. Am I better off using a cleat with more screws, then attaching to that or what? I can't go much longer on the screws before risking coming out the other side.

I'm still working on my trailer. I had decided to use these Costco shelves as a temporary fix until I built my own cabinets but I think now I may just keep using them.

Congrats on both "deliveries"!

They're both gonna cost you a lot of money keeping them outfitted!
