    oxy/acet cart

    im looking for a well designed oxy/acety cart. for the large bottles! this is too be used in heavy industrial areas so it needs to be well built, large tires are a must for rough areas. and a lifting eye so it can be thrown on a hook if need be. nothing fancy just able to hold the bottles, roll up the hoses on. most of the ones I see here on the net are pretty light weight with tiny tires. hoping someone on here might have a source or even there own design they might wanna share? if somehow the unit could even be towed behind the truck on the pintle hitch that would be beautiful.. as lifting these units into a truck is a chore.

    Re: oxy/acet cart

    This is the cart I have for bigger bottles but I would not consider it heavy enough duty for industrial use though.



    It can be adjusted from being vertical to 45 degrees.

    This is the homemade cart I made for midsize bottles. The tall wheels work well outside in the gravel maintenance yard.



    And my converted handtruck for single bottles.

    Any construction job I was on, we were never allowed to lift an oxy/fuel cart unless the cart was engineered to do so.

    We adapter a full size tank cart with car tires and hubs. Added a steel plate divider between tanks with lifting eye. Made up a bolt on / pin hitch to be pulled behind truck.
    I'm sure to could do a search too.

    Have you checked Grainger? We used to get some really nice carts for the copper industry & I think it was from them, they had nice tires, about 24 inches in diameter and 3 inches wide on roller bearing wheels, they had a lifting eye attached to the bottom plate and could be had wit a tow hitch, albeit low speed for like a fork lift etc. the only thing I didn't like about them was the balance when moving them by hand.

    Did you tow this down the road with bottles loaded on it? It sounds like OP wants to do this too. Is that legal?

    I like this rig, Lis. Where did you find the wheels, or did you make them?

    We towed on Jobsites and off road with tanks secured. This was not towed on city or town streets. You could also move by hand.
    It was basically a large bottle cart with the 24" steel wheels that we modified.
    Golf cart tires would work too.

    Re: oxy/acet cart

    yes this would never be towed outside the mill.. just for moving from one area of the mill to another. ive never seen one that can be towed like this. was just an idea which would make life much easier. one man could hook it on the truck and move it instead of 3 men to wrestle it into the back of a truck when no forklift is around...which is usually the case

    your probably correct on that. back in the day we used to wrap a 3/8 choker around a bottle and let it fly but now days your not allowed to do anything sensible.. if I could find a good design and get it engineered that would be a way around that.. if I let the engineer design it. it would end up weighing 4 tons and take a team of horses to pull it....

    Thanks, Kelvin. Those were wheels we had around on the farm. Not sure if they were off a wooden wheel barrow or...

    Re: oxy/acet cart

    Lisa 2323 , I love that inline tank cart. I have a factory one and it's perfect as a space saver.
    My basic side to side one has the 24" diameter steel wheels. Now that's perfect for using on dirt or gravel.

    Thanks, BD1.

    I obviously lost a bit of the space saving qualities with the slightly wider stance but I was concerned with stability.

    This is almost exactly what we used, with the exception that ours had rubber pneumatic tires and didn't have the hose wrap.

    Yep, those are similar to what we made. Those are definitely nice carts.

    I have seen legit engineered bottle carts for lifting. You can get them.

    Re: oxy/acet cart

    I really like the idea of being able to throw It on the pintle and tow it behind. I just hate the idea of buying one that I don't get to try first ive seen so many purchased and homemade carts over the years that just didn't balance worth &hit. big tires are the only way to go for sure. anyone have anymore then the 2 I found?

    If you don't want to build from scratch buy a basic 24" steel wheel one. It's a not hard we made a bunch. Add axle and wheels, divider plate with eye, and hitch.
    Tack up and test for balance and positioning. Then weldout. We made a bunch and not difficult.
    There are hobby guys here that can do it.

    This one looks liftable and towable.

    I agree with BD1. BUY a heavy duty one and mod it.

    Re: oxy/acet cart

    that would just be a lifting lug.. looks very similar to the 2nd website I added above. almost too similar down to the green paint! towing it from the lifting lug would put the bottles horizontal which I believe is thing we aren't allowed to do these days... not sure what angle there allowed to be at b4 its an "issue" though...

    I would have three made by now. What's the holdup ? Are you really a wood butcher ??

    The bottle angle would most likely be okay depending on the height of the towing vehicle’s hitch.

    i'm not sure i'd trust this hanging from a crane hook but was very easy to build from shop scrap. easy to push,it's got room for material and a fire extinguisher with a locking box in back.

    cant lift it, cant pull it except on a concrete floor. maybe great in your garage, absolutely useless out in the field.
