I got some paint on the next little trailer project. The 26-12-12 tires look nice on the trailer. I can hook it up to the mini 4020 until I build the plow this fall.

Those tires do make it look proportionally small! LOL! I think we need a pic or two of it behind the mini to get a good look at it. :thumbs:

Thanks , those tires do make the trailer look tiny but I like the look of it. I had the plywood floor cut out and ready to bolt in and changed my my mind and decided I want a metal floor instead. So today i should get it finished up and painted.

What a great looking trailer! Like the metal floor idea. It should last for a long time with that!

You can see all the drill holes I welded through to attach the floor to the frame and the long seam where i joined the two pieces of metal i had sitting around. The bondo is where the holes were in case anyone was wondering.

I'm convinced my grandson is now hooked for life on tractors, ha,ha. He heads right out in the backyard every morning to see the tractors and walks right by grandma and grandpa. He has been driving the big tractor everyday inside the cab with the air conditioning going. I hope he doesn't get too spoiled and want a cab on his tractor, :thumbs:

Don, You'll have to make him a mini version of Granpa's big tractor with cab. You could probably even get an AC setup in it!
