I suspect he won’t be back to answer, I do recall Jack carries several lengths of leads in his van, and mentioned earlier in the thread this was setup to match his other welders.

As far as Cutter's passing, I would agree that things have not been the same. I miss him and his clarity of thought.

Back to the trailer. Do you store the leads inside the van or hang them on the welder?
He stores them in the van.

I have the 4x8 version and after 15+yrs & 10,000+miles, I still have trouble backing it with a small sedan--I can only imagine how quickly that bad boy jack-knifes! I'll find myself disconnecting the trailer and moving it by hand into its parking space instead of trying to back it/jockey it. I don't know if that is possible with your rig and its weight...

Let’s not rehash a dead horse. Jack built a unit that was for a very specific reason and use. Would it be a pain to back up? Sure. Jack didn’t care if he had that option, as it wasn’t his major concern. He wanted wheels on a unit, and as small and compact as possible.

To be able to see the thing, maybe some fiberglass poles sold for marking where to snowplow.
Clamp them on the back end, at the sides.
