Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
I've been posting pieces as the frame comes together and I make progress on the M35A3 4x4 project, which just freed up the bed. Yes, I'm making it a dump. I put 2.5 x 5 tube rails under it and am starting a hinge with some heavy materials.Are you making a dump trailer? Trying to figure out how to run your hydraulics? Off 24v or an engine? Am I late to this party?
Tried to find the trailer in your pics but got real distracted!!!!!!!Today I got organized and brought over the tools and materials to finish building my trailer’s interior. Here’s a shot of the outside and the inside through the rear door. It needs cedar paneling on the walls and a birch plywood ceiling. I’m about 2-1/2 years into the build but haven’t had much time to work on it in the last year. This started its life as a 1991 Kasel M116A3 generator chassis.
I have a few spots, like the frame mount of the axle equalizer to weld. The tubes sticking out the back go clear to the front of the bed and 8" further for a front telescoping cylinder mount A to connect. Hinges at the rear mount to that subframe and the trailer frame. I'm going to have to fit things in place and then take the bed off again to weld the tilt bed subframe part out. It will have front pins or bolts for now.Toby, Are you going to weld it up ready for your cylinder? Ready for the dump? Just pin it down, or hold the front end down in the meantime?
Was this a result of a previous rear end collision? Or were you just trying to prevent any futures ones?Went ahead and put some paint on her since the fire burned off most of the rear paint. She got a few new tires since then as well. Along with 13 rear lights compared to what i had before along with a set of strobes. Hopefully they will detour any future rear end collisons. I also mounted a camera under rear of the dovetail that feeds to the truck monitor so it will be an up close and personal video contact in the future.
