    I've always preferred it when the gas bottle is behind the welding machine, not offset to the side. You can keep the whole thing narrower then, and it's easier to store/get out of the way.

    That's just a preference though. There are only two styles of carts in UK/Europe - longer carts with bottles behind them, and sack barrow style with the machine in front under the handles, and the bottle on the "normal" carrying bit.

    I like the designs though. Whatever works best for you

    Here's what we just got for our shop - It's a jobsite multiprocess MIG/TIG/MMA with a feeder. I was pretty impressed with the barrow design and stability. I'd rather have 4 wheels for a workshop cart, though.
    Sorry about the picture - somehow it won't rotate!

    Narrow carts also help or aid in making it easier to get the cart through a doorway

    The center if mass will be quite high in the vertical axis. The 221 weighs about 40 lbs, the water cooler, when full of coolant, weighs about 30lbs.

    A drawer to hold all welding supplies? For what? lol Unless your area is sooo massive that it would take 5 minutes to go to the other side to grab something you forgot, I think you can do without it. A small box like this slid into a narrow cubby, or a small toolbox like this should hold most everything you need. You just need a shelf on top for it. And if they don't hold everything you need, then you have other issues, like me! Too much crap! As for the helmets I just hang mine on the argon tank




    Just my take on things of course
    1st on WeldingWeb to have a scrolling sig!

    IMO also, I see this as a common unnecessary feature of shop built welding carts.
