    trailer-made-scratch becomes boneified tool

    Trailer made from scratch

    I can now consider this trailer an actual tool actually almost a multi-tool
    with the addition of 2 small cranes it is a self loader
    It also doubles as an engine hoist on steroids
    can use 1 or both for removing or installing very handy
    the drop down legs when needed will keep things stable

    A 2" ball hitch is fine but when it is part of a pintle hitch this is like having a belt and suspenders you just got to know your pants are not going to fall off

    Also perfectly happy to be towed behind a big truck

    Wow thanks guys.
    The cranes work great I filled both of the 225 gal totes with water then hauled them 14 miles and unloaded them with the cranes with the drop legs supporting, this made what could have been a difficult task much easier.
    Actually I have been thinking about duplicating the little cranes and adding 2 more to the front of the trailer
