Need Plans to build a better built Dump Trailer? How about a 7′ x 14′ dump bed with 14,000 lbs trailer capacity. I can tell you where to get them, and we know the plans are great, because Synthesis Engineering did them.
Where do you get plans for true, tough, Car Hauler trailers. After a ton of market and product study, we are stepping in and stepping up. Our niche is engineering better plans for DIY, so read on to learn about our approach to Equipment Transport
I’m not sure how to categorize this Article. It’s an answer, but more than that. We get questions once in a while something like “My trailer is X long and I want to haul a Y. Is 3 inch angle iron strong enough?”
The beauty of a gantry crane is the beam overhead, and the clear access for lifting things. To make them more useful, telescoping legs put the top beam at a height appropriate for the job — in your garage, or outside, or wherever. One of the challenges
It’s time to welcome the tilt top trailer. You, as customers and readers, request this a lot, for a while. So, now we have it. Rather than redesigning all our trailers and sizes, we made it a conversion t0 will work with our utility trailer plans.
Some Trailer Plans don’t use a standard axle size. Why not? Good question, along with the also common “Why should I special order the trailer axle?
There are a few common-ish axle sizes
What if . . . You want to live Tiny, but not “that” tiny? Sure, there are a lot of attractive elements with living Tiny, but to some, the 8 foot width is just too tight. If that’s you, go with a wider tiny house built with these new trailer plans!
More new plans, and even more coming. You’ve been asking for robust Deck-Over Trailers, so that’s what we’re working on. Now they are here, and we’re not talking about another “Me Too”.
I want to build a trailer, but there are so many possibilities — and some are mutually exclusive. How do I narrow my needs, and how do I choose which Trailer Plans to buy?
More New Product Announcements: The Mechanical Elements line of DIY Trailer Blueprints has just expanded – AGAIN – with more trailer plans for torsion axles. These new trailer plans fill
Virtually everything on the internet is by definition “World Wide”. Even though Mechanical Elements (Synthesis Engineering Services) is physically located in the USA, we have a world audience, so it’s a fair question
Before starting a project we always want to know — or at least have some idea — how much will it cost to build? If you’re like me, resources are limited, so knowing how much you’re going to sink into a project is smart.
We’ve been working with the great folks at Johnson Trailer Parts for a while. Their business is primarily selling trailer parts, but they understand the greasy hands-on Do-It-Yourself paradigm!
I can’t find quite the right plans for the trailer I want to build. Can I make changes to the plans at Mechanical Elements to fit my needs?
When someone asked “What is a Specialty Trailer?”, I had to really think about it. Words are important in descriptions. Certainly it does not mean “Special”, as in “Unique” because almost all DIY
It’s a big dilemma. Why buy trailer plans (or crane plans or whatever) when you can get free plans? Some websites have free plans, other places charge. So what’s the big deal?
Nothing ruins a pleasant day quite like a goose egg on your head, or a throbbing finger pinch. Avoiding those things (and, of course, the much more disastrous potential events) is the context of this gantry crane safety article.
This post is a question from an engineering student wondering about trailer frame materials selection and safety factor. His analysis shows a material thickness that “does the job” is much less than his welder associates recommend. Wondering about why, he asks:
