 3 point or trailer

I have a Miller Bobcat 250 welder and I don't know if I should build a small trailer "Not for road use" property
only. Or build a lift frame for my 3 point on my Kubota
BX23? Something like forks so I could backup to it and go. Anyone have any Ideas or sugestions?
welder weights 560lbs.

Whatever you end up with, I think it is a good idea to have it separated from the tractor while you are welding. If you get accidentally grounded to the BX you could burn out a lot of expensive stuff.

I like the trailer concept too.....

Northern Tool sells some utility wagons ranging from $60.00 to $100.00 with big Pneumatic tires for hauling up to 1,000 lbs. Generally used for lawn/garden use. These can be pushed by hand or you could weld a tongue for attachment to your tractor. With a wagon it stays level and you don't have to use a jack stand.

Ditto of DRankin statement, watch out for stray voltage!

Ditto, Ditto. Get it not only unhooked from the tractor, but preferably minimum of 8' away. Make sure the trailer jack has a non-conductive material on the foot. We have several trailer mounted welders, and always unhook them from the truck before using.

Mount the welder on a skid that you can easily load and unload from the trailer. Now you can free up the trailer for other uses.

Thanks for the info, I was leaning toward the 3point idea
But not after all this good input! I thought about the grounding issue and said well it's only riding on the 3point
and I'd be grounded only to what I'm welding, But then it only takes one time and I hate the smell of burning wires!
And that's why I posted this! Second opinions are beneficial

Thanks Again

"...I'd be grounded only to what I'm welding..."

Not if the welder had a ground fault and the loader bucket was sitting on the earth ...

Better safe than very, very sorry.

Best of luck.

GEEZE I wonder what all these poor dumb professional welders with truck mounted welders do?

The 3PH is not a problem.

However all that said I agree with everone the trailer is a better option but not for the reasons mentioned.

Our trucks have rubber isolators mounting the welders.
