    When I first started thinking about having a rolling scaffold to assist me in building my shop I was thinking about using my 5 x 9 trailer it has drop down legs for stability is easy to move around by almost any thing. Then I decided that I wanted to put the body of the school bus on top of the container to become an office or for storage once I had it removed I looked at the length of the chassis "DING" The chassis is 3 feet taller than the trailer bed meaning I wouldn't have to cut a section of scaffold in half to achieve the height I wanted and it was long enough to span 3 of the trusses meaning I wouldn't have to move it around so often Even if I don't plank it to install the purlins, the frames strike right at the trusses anyway

    Well my D10 dozer blade conversion would rate a close 2nd in size but it would be the heaviest.
    Maybe I should focus my efforts on creating the smallest and the lightest tools of the week LOL
