Combine Header Trailer

Recommended Posts

Brilliant Mark...

Now... how's this for a coincidence.. I made a full functioning screw jack for my wooden trailer last night... I though it looked good until I looked at yours  :-[ :'( :D :D

That's a nice build... especiually in metal... how did you shape the towing eye thingy ???

Spooky.........we must have shared a psychic brainwave :D  All shaped with hand files and needle files ;)

Looks great Mark  ;) and dab hand with welder i see, did you use MIG or ARC  :)

looks like mig ,as they are good welds  ;):)

Arc on low amps :P  The only mig I've got use of is a cr499y gasless one

Welded?!! Slow down Hamilton, some of us havn't even mastered soldering yet!!  :o

Looking really fine mate. Should have enteret her in the Comp, Mark.

Love it, very clean.  8)

mig doesn't always give good welds rich , well not if you've seen my welding lately  :D :D :D :D :D

looks a nice trailer mark , much rather see this than the 4wheel trailers they bring out , fit most headers i would think though would it or will it just fit the deere header ?

Thanks Sean, you can weld smaller than that with TIG

Marcus, The only other detachable header I've got is off a Case AFX8010 which looks like a 30 footer. That probably won't fit on it  :D  I made this one to be suited to sizes I'm more familiar with - about 18 foot and under or thereabouts.

I've e.mailed Andy to enter the comp now, so I will scale the brackets a bit more realistically and add some more little bits and bobs.

I learned to weld on arc and have stuck with it mainly, can't beat the good penetration :D
