Default Rig advice

I'm just about to have someone weld me a new rig and begin to build my single tier. I found this on amazon and wondering if this could work. I would just use this for my HLT and boil kettle.

Amazon.com: King Kooker 94/90TKD Portable Dual-Burner Propane 30-Inch Patio Cart: Patio, Lawn & Garden

thanks

If you put some work into it welding a couple trusses the long way as well across the ends you could make it work for your brewing rig. The wheels I would look into if they are up to the added weight your adding to it also.
That's what I would do without building a frame to hold up school busses with a ton a money in the frame alone. JMO"s no flame wars please.
For this $200 investment out of I bet is already only 18 or 20 gauge material that money can buy a lot of 1 1/4" light gauge square tube and weld up a stand to your dimensions and brewing use, you would be far more better off
going this way depending if you have a welder and cutting equipment to start with or have friends that will help you. What are friends for? Best of luck.

I'll F'n kill you for saying that! Hehe...

That seems like a good idea. Weld some supports and repaint with some hi-temp.

Tommy, your stand is no way near the 2" by 1/4" wall box stainless stands i've seen on the forum. Those must be rated for 80,000 lbs fully loaded 18 wheelers.

I bet rarjr would be better off making a scratch built stand with the proper materials to begin with and the dimensions of the stand to fit his needs.
I would go with locking casters on one end with fixed on the other instead of "wheelbarreling" it around. Speaking from a person with a bad back here, make life easy, build it right and once.
