Envelope Retrieval Cart

From FaceBook (7/18/2018)
Jim Fromm, Indianola, IA
This cart thing came up in the discussion about tile in a trailer, thought it could save you and your crew some effort.
It's a custom made cart that can transport both the envelope and basket (regular sized) in and out of the trailer.
A ramp door trailer obviously makes it easier but it can also help just to get a system out of a place you're not able to drive into.
It breaks down into four pieces and probably weighs 30 pounds. It may not be for everyone but it works very well for us. :-)

Make Cross Bar and bottom of T out of 2 inch square tube.
Make the handle out of 1 1/2 inch square tube so it is removable
Add Fenders to protect bag from wheels.
Mount wheels on 1 1/2 inch tube as removable insert into cross bar.
