So it begins. This tiny starter trailer doesn’t allow for much in the way of “options” so this is what I am thinking of doing.
Note I am doing this 2 days a week outside my normal FT job with plans to build enough work to go full time in a year or two.
PW has an electric start.
Tank is for buffer and will only leave a few gallons in the bottom in transit.
Removing that particle board and putting down a stall mat from Tractor Supply.
Using U clamps to clamp PW down unless someone has a better option.
Using eye bolts to strap buffer tank down.
Blue tub represents where the stacking reels will go.
Black tub with grey lid is my thought on where some chemicals to be carried to help even out the weight the stacking reels will add to the curb side.
Thinking I can put a pvc on the street side and slide the squeegee and pushbroom in… just need a secure way to keep them from popping out. Thought about vertical housing but seems kind of long for that gate.
Next sums of money after getting the basics filled in (150 ft hose, stacking hose reel and a WW Classic or Ultra and a supply of spare parts) is a used truck. Currently hauling with a 4 cylinder sedan and class 1 hitch so super conscious of weight on trailer. Think I am probably going to be about 550ish pounds. Yes, I know. It is an intermediary - would love to be able to just go out and layout $ for a truck now, but no can do. So used truck and then maybe a bigger trailer are next.
See any issue with the sc handle in that location? Gas/choke is still accessible.
see any issues with the buffer tank sitting where it is? - slight offset on street side to allow room for plumbing. (again it will only transport a few gallons in transit due to class 1 hitch)
Should I put the buffer up on 2x4’s to get it off the floor to make plumbing and filters easier to manage?
Buffer tank, should the discharge for extra water come off the back or front side of the tank? I also want a Y splitter so I can run a short whip for filling buckets, washing my legs, etc…
Anyone have a good solution to hanging things on that back gate? Would love to hang the wands, boots, bag with gloves, etc up there, not crazy about bungies long term.
any issue with weight placement? kinda worried it is too much weight on the back with the stacking reels and hose and the chemicals…
