9 ton fraser trailer


Recommended Posts

well here is my latest project... it's a 12 ton marston trailer, hopefully goign to be a 9/10 ton fraser trailer. ive seen this done by sean and jamie, so give them the credit ;) but i shortened the body, took the tail gate off, then i made a better looking drawbar, no pics of it yet.

oh and one thing, should i spray it the actual fraser green or should i spray it in JD green? JD green would be easier :-\ but you's decide :-\

good job ;) are you doing silage sides for it?

no it's just going to be a grain trailer, before i did this to it, it was just the normal grain trailer with out silage sides so... :-\ dont have any sides to put on her and im going to make the tailgate sort of manual, and i would love to make a grain hatch on it for when im blowing the grain into the drier :-\ but i will probably make a right mess of it ::)

nice job! thumbs up!

thanks mate, positive comments keep me going ;D;)

looking good so far Matty ;),are you going to keep it on the super single wheels

thanks, yea they're staying, they look prety much the same as the real ones, almost :-[

this here is the sort of trailer i'm basing it on, obviously wont be the same body style but hey, i think it's better than the usual marston 12tonne trailer for farmers with 3000acres of crop!! :D :D

Looks great, an excellent start to conversions!!!

Maybe make a pipe holder for the front and it will look ace.

I personally would of gone for a thinner drawbar but yours looks fine.

A touch of paint and get it rolling!!  ;) ;) ;)

yep i'll get that done, i know the drawbar is a bit thick but hay :D well i have to get this tailgate doneand i'll get her primed 8)

looks good, how did you cut the metal ???

thanks mate, hacksaw ;):D

people need your advice, should i get a fraser look a like paint from halfords or just spray it JD green??
