Default 3 tier on wheels

So last week I put in my 2 weeks without a new job yet(don't ask). I have been interviewing a lot and needed a project to do while I am on "vacation". I have a 1200 sf workshop (unfortunately unheated) out back. My wife has been demanding that I move the brewery out there. I was bored and went to the Home Depot (it was lovely) and started walking the garden section. I found some wheel barrow tires on clearance for $4 a tire (normally $25 each) So I picked them up and started making a 3 tier on wheels. I have a deck out back that is off the ground about 3' and that will help with the height. I am also 6'5" so that doesn't hurt either. Its not complete yet, I have to add some heat protection to some of the areas but you will get the picture. And yes there are brakes for the wheels.


This is what the axle will attach to.

Its taking shape.

That last one is the brewpot. Under the brewpot is Hardibacker. The dudes at home depot said that it is great for deflecting heat. Any friendly advice on the system or job offers for bank VP jobs in Indianapolis are welcome.

If you are going to have a HLT on top there you may want to pipe water to it.
Also, it looks like all 4 wheels are set and do not turn. Without any swivels, how you going to turn that beast?

Here is mine.


I add water lines to it and that was the best thing I have done. No more ladders to fill the HLT.

Nice set up! You need a trashy sign on yours like mine. I can't do the hose thing because my water sucks. I have to buy mine at a water store.

Haha, it's funny, you're the only one that's ever noticed that.

The two bottom beams ARE bent, but they were before I used them on the stand. Trust me, those 2x2s wouldn't bend from any homebrewer application. I made the stand out of some scrap steel I got for free. It came from some frames that were used to move some really heavy equipment, which is why the ones on the bottom are slightly bowed. It's really not that bad - that particular picture makes it stand out though.
