I'm thinking of buying one of those 22-24' box beds off of 2 ton trucks for storage. Does anyone know what one weighs? Might have to move it myself . Lots cheaper than a backyard barn and i need storage for tools till i can build a machinery shop and storage. Thanks in advance!

You might also consider an overseas shipping container. They come in 20' and 40' lengths. Too expensive to ship back to China. Not enough goods going that way to reuse them all. There are companies that sell and deliver them. Heavier duty than truck boxes, although probably not need to be heavier. Have seen where they have been converted numerous ways. Prices vary depending your part of the country.

Funny you should ask. No, I don"t know what a used one goes for or how much it weighs, but figure you oughta be able to find one at a salvage yard or trailer repair cheap enough, then have a towing company that can tow semis deliver it on a flat bed or dollies easily enough. The reason I say funny you should ask is this week I"m working at the track in Joliet for some IRL racing this weekend, and they have them delivered for temp office space and stores for nascar and IRL race weekends. I was looking one over yesterday and commented "There"s a good use for a fixed up and painted once junk box. Someone found a nitch and is making money off of it, good for them". Some they are using are 40+ footers, and some are 24 or 26 footers. And I see adds for them on TV...you call to rent, they deliver...not that you or I would rent one. Deliver though? Well, did used to have wheels under them, so I guess deliver is about right. As far as weight goes, the track is unloading them with a wheeled 9xx Caterpiller with forks, so are heavy enough that you probably won"t do it yourself. Good idea though if zoning laws don"t stop you. Bet by time you factor in buying one cheap that you can fix if need to, have a towing company deliver with dollies and drop or..., probably might be just what the doctor ordered for durability and budget. Good luck.

Today's Featured Article - Madison's County - by Anthony West. Philip Madison has been a good friend of mine for quite some time. He has patiently suffered my incessant chit chat on the subject of tractors for longer than I care to remember, and on many occasions he has put himself out, dropped what ever it was he was doing, to come and lend a hand cranking handles, or loading a find onto a trailer. Although he himself has never actually owned or restored a tractor, he was always enthusiastic and always around helping with other peoples projects. ... [Read Article]
