    Rough terain welder cart

    The title means just what it says
    my little Miller 210 mig welder has been suffering from a gravel floor for far too long
    very difficult to move around on the factory wheel kit
    So I dug a few items out of my classed for reuse pile of scrap and made a cart that can be moved around very easy.

    I started out with the front frame of a Toro walk behind mower

    First up modify the frame work

    Next cut the hubs out of the rear tires

    then lengthen the forks for larger tires

    he modified assembled cart frame

    I managed to make 2 hubs out of 1 so this gave me 4 hubs
    2 of these will be used on my torch cart later this week
    here I have just welded the hub into the center of a doughnut spare tire these can be bought for next to nothing but I had 2 the same size just laying around

    the finished cart may never win any beauty contests but it is very functional

    One thing is for sure it rolls easy.
    Later I plan on adding a shelf on the back with some bottle supports to add one of my cutting rigs to it this way I will have both welder and torch at hand at all times. I have 2 or 3 sets of bottles gauges hoses and torches that I am not using just now anyway
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use http://kbs.justoldtrucks.com/

    Great build. Similar concept (though slightly more complex) as some of the "off road" floor jacks we've seen, like this one by am4x4 on Pirate4x4.com:

    .

    I'll bet she rolls like a champ. There are fewer things more frustrating than being a grown man, and forced to drag a wheeled cart over a rough surface. It makes you feel like a caveman who hasn't quite finished inventing the wheel.
