I made this little dolly so I could move the compressor around easier. It didn't take long to make, then I painted it with the same green paint as the trailer to match. If I ever get a chance I will paint the wheels black also.

I welded two pieces of angle iron into a square, drilled a hole and welded a nut over it, then put a bolt in it so it is adjustable. Just loosen the bolt and slide the arm where you want it, then tighten.

Here is is hooked to the trailer. The engine covers are taken off so I can get a replacement coil, I think that is my spark problem. I don't know why I didn't think of it before!

Thats a pretty neat little dolly you got there. Good idea to make it adjustable like that :thumbs: How hard do you have to push down on it to lift the compressor ?

I've wanted to make one of those for so long... glad someone out there is getting something done! So just curious, what is the need for the mobil compressor?

Thanks everybody!

I just put the scale on it, it is only 21 pounds before the jack stand lifts up. There is only 110 pounds of weight on the tongue anyway, not bad when the compressor is over 400 pounds! Lol!

I've wanted to make one of those for so long... glad someone out there is getting something done! So just curious, what is the need for the mobil compressor?

Exactly that, so it is mobile! This way I can just hook it up to a tractor and pull it where ever I need to work! Or, I can use the dolly and just pull it out of the garage.

Cool dolly, Ryan!
Hey, Buzz! Is this what you were thinking about to move tractors around with a while back?
