    Big wheel mod for torch cart

    My torch cart was impossible to move around on gravel so I added these large doughnut tires to it

    A similar feature hereabouts, not so much gravel but they use old implement wheels; cast hub, rod spokes, iron tire, bigger the better.

    TM51, now that sand and grass has replaced gravel for my shop floor LOL , you cannot know how much I appreciate having those 28" diameter rounded tread tires on my torch cart. I can roll it down to my usable stock field which is sand so loose that peanuts wouldn't grow in, to cut off a chunk of metal without breaking a sweat, But now that I have my Kawasaki powered Ingersol-Rand carry all running and my 2 wheel hand truck trailer I can hook up the hand truck to the club car then hang the handle of the torch cart over the foot of the 2 wheeler then I only have to make 1 trip.
    400 yards one way is a long way to drag things by hand in the sand

    400 Yards! At the size and weight of your projects, 40 is too far. And what is essentially a semi+dual trailers = labor and time saved.

    Hence the primary reason for having my carry all and backhoe with the fork carriage. Homemade Fork Carriage - HomemadeTools.net
    I do have some stuff that is much closer and if I ever decide exactly where I am going to build my permanent shop much of the stuff will be relocated to a more centralized better arranged location Heck I still have 3 semi's loaded that are still 220 miles away that makes it impossible to utilize the inventory I know that I have in them, but one day everything will be on location
