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


Hello all,

I recently updated my trailer and I got a lot of ideas from this thread. Here is a list:
1. 120v electrical, Halogen light, outlet bar, mounted the microwave and added a heater to keep the air tools above 40 degrees.

2. dividers for framing/coil nailers. there is much more space now.

3. Line-x on the ramp. Cost $250, I think it was worth it.

4. Cleaned it after a year of use, this was the biggest improvement

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


I was thinking of a BOB trailer on the back of a city bike.
I've got to redo my trailer as it does not work that well... I've got to figure out what to do with my table saw and chop saw so that I can use them at condo's where I can't get up the elevator and can't work on the property but CAN work in my trailer ON the property? Go figure.

Snapped a few with my phone before I rolled out this morning. 6x12, 6-6 tall.

From the rear ramp door-


From the side door-


I just noticed you can't really see a lot of my tools looking in. Maybe that's a good thing...

d.Texan I noticed that you don't have any ply on the walls of your trailer did you take it off or did it come that way? Mine has 1/4 luan and its beaten all to... I'm thinkin' that if it came off in the redesign that might be a good thing.

It came that way. It's an all steel trailer. I screwed everything to the studs.

After having this one I don't think I'd want one with ply on the walls. Unless it was thick enough to hold screws... Plus the white walls make it really bright in there.

I have seen that thing, and man I been thinking about buying one. My local depot has one shoved under the router bit section, assembed and out of the box on clearance for $199...shows a reg price tag of $299, but i have a bosch and it does all I need, just large and in charge for a job site saw.

For $199 I'd be on that like free beer! Pretty sure mine was like $400-$450 and worth every penny. I love the fence. Especially for a portable. And they also stand on end.

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


Not sure I want to showcase all of my tools (no offense to anyone). My partner just had a a thief try to break in to his trailer. He has his outfitted with an alarm and we think its the only thing that stopped them. That and the fact that they were so stupid that they cut the swiveling hasp on the trailer with bolt cutters and lodged the lock in place. Then they just moved to the side door. Nothing I hate more than a THIEF

I have heard it's bad for the Bearings/runners and accuracy if you leave it extended for any period of time. I always lock mine closed when not in use.
