    Here is a good pic from Huntsville Utilities, where we moved the transformer at Redstone Arsenal.

    Steel Soldiers migration 12/9/19

    Yes, I've been around here through a few site changes also. I have to admit, I don't like change, but I've come to learn that change is just a part of life, so I deal with it. If Drew said we needed to change, I take his word on it, and we needed to change. Lord knows that I have no idea about...

    I've got the search icon now. I don't know what you did, but it seems to have fixed it.

    Still not seeing it. Here is what I'm looking at.

    Steel Soldiers migration 12/9/19

    Maybe it's operator error on my part, but for the life of me I can't find the search. A member has PMed me about some info I had in a old thread. I was wanting to find that thread and provide him a link, but can't figure out how to search.

    s280 shelter questions

    I’ve converted a s280 into a camper that slides in and out of my deuce. I hate the metal floor. I restored most of the rest of the shelter, but just laid a piece of carpet over the metal floor, and it still has a awful feeling when walking on it, especially with your shoes off. I think even 1/2”...

    I don't know why the one pic is upside down. I tried to fix it but didn't have any luck.

    M1000 Trailer

    No plans for a M1070, that old Mack didn’t even know there was a load back there.

    Hauled our first load today on the M1000. 175,000 lb load, 250,000 lb gross.

    M1000 Trailer

    When I was out there taking those pictures, Dad was trying to get me to video it in a turn, but it was fixing to rain and I didn't get around to it. It takes some training to pull the thing. You figure out real quick that if you take a turn like a normal tractor/trailer you'll wind out running...

    M1000 Trailer

    I've still got them, and all you have to do is install to pins to put them back on, but the vast majority of stuff we haul will be loaded/unloaded with a crane. I'm not going to put them back on unless we need them. As it sets right now, I can load it on our lowboy and haul it to the job if...

    M1000 Trailer

    I’d seen where some new suspension cylinders sold for cheap, but I guess I missed the lots above. What I’ve found that there are a lot of parts to the trailer made by commercial suppliers, but they are just a little different than their commercial counterpart and the OEM just don’t want to deal...

    We’ve got a 150.000 lb transformer to move coming up, that will probably be it’s first load.

    M1000 Trailer

    Finally got everything ready to go. After I painted it, I noticed one of the neck cylinders developed a leak. That was a job to remove and get apart, and had a little trouble finding the parts. I liked to have never got the end cap off. The TM makes it sound easy, but it took the better part of...

    M322 LT , Between Phoenix and Flagstaff.

    So U-Ship lets people sign up with them without the proper authority to haul for-hire? That’s another reason not to use them. The odds of that trailer ever making it to OH were slim at best. It’s a wonder he made it that far.

    M322 LT , Between Phoenix and Flagstaff.

    This is super easy, but not necessarily cheap. You'd have to get a wrecker, pick it up, and set it on a roadworthy trailer. Sure, you can get a tire put on it to get it out of the road, but it's still not legal to tow down the road. To make it legal, you are going to need at least 2 good tires...

    M1000 Trailer

    Took 5 gallons. I'll probably order another gallon for touch-up, as I've already spotted some places I've missed underneath. Right now, I've got the rear taped off and working on painting "oversize load" permanently on the back. It will be oversize anytime it moves, so I figured I'd just paint...

    All the manuals are available on-line. Just do a Google search for "m1000 trailer TM" and you pull up several free sources.

    Did I commit a cardinal sin? I’m normally against this, but this one will be used for commercial work.
