It is a 100yds or so to the new barn so I quickly realized it was not a good idea to bring lawn tools to the house one at a time and I needed a neat way to store them, so I built a cart. It rolls easily on the concrete and lets the 1025r bring everything I need in one trip.


I built it from 1" square tubing and 2" angle where the lifts attach. Expanded steel makes the bottoms of the two levels and I bent some 3/16 bar to make tool holders. The top shelf has dividers to keep the gas cans from bouncing around and the milk crate is bolted through the expanded steel to hold it. I toss in trimmer string, cutting pliers, a combo wrench, edger blades, etc. 1" PVC pipe with a gap cut out fits the shaft of the trimmer and edger and I loop a small bungee around all three to keep them from swinging around.

A stop block is at the front of the mower and I heavy bungee pulls it toward the cart at the handle. My yard is flat so I don't travel across any side slopes, I might need something stronger if that side was tilted down. I'm using wood blocks until I get some thin angle on the next trip to the metal yard. They sell shorts so I can get a couple of feet cheap.


This is my second welding project and I am really enjoying having a welder in the shop, I should have bought one years ago.
