Parbuckle Trailer - Hinge Design Question
« on: February 08, 2018, 07:27:08 PM »
Hey team,

Just put some new shoes on my trailer, picked up new wiring harness on amazon that came with a junction box (great score) and rewire happens this weekend.

Need help on the design for ramps off the side and snatch block setup.  Any pics of hinges and ramps working well especially over wheel wells?

How about snatch block, best to use a tow strap and let the block float in the middle to self straighten?

Anything not to do?  Thanks for replies and comments.  And yes I have read the thread on this curious on working details now.

After using my trailer for parbuckling something that I plan to do is re-enforce the fenders before I smash them. My plan is to make a rectangle the size of the top surface area of each fender and support in from the outside edge of that and down to the edge of the trailer deck.
I have a winch on an outrigger pole on one side of my trailer and put my ramps on the opposite side. The winch sits about 4-5 foot high, so my cables don't drag on the trailer at any time.
You can kind of see my out rigger. It spins to pick things up when I need and because I used to have a mill on this trailer and it was great for turning logs. If I swing it towards the far side of the trailer (where I put my ramps) my cables never touch a thing.

Great setup, this is what I was looking to see.  What size stock did you use for the lift and how is it mounted to the side? Screwed down to the deck or welded right to the frame?  I am not sure how much strength it needs since its rolling logs,  not a straight pull.

I'd boxed together 2 pieces of 2x4 channel and mounted them on the spare tire rack which is welded to the trailer. Inside of that I put a chunk of pipe that's probably 3", then made the "arm" out of a single piece of 2x4 channel and added a gusset. I have a HF 2,000 lb. winch that will roll a 24"x16' log up without much trouble, but would recommend something a bit bigger. I'd made 6' ramps and a couple people here suggested making them longer and I'm glad I did, I made them 8' and they work fine.

Bad picture, but you can see the winch mounted on the vertical post and at the end of the arm there is a small pulley/snatchblock that is right in line with the angle of the ramps. I made it so I could swivel the outrigger out of my way and have a walkway beside the mill.

 
Here's what I started with. The little mill is gone, but the outrigger and ramps come in handy and never leave the trailer.
