made a station /cart for my spray rig. helps keep all the stuff in one area ,mask , hose ,filter and some tools . this little sprayer is the best until i got this i didn’t like to spray it made all the difference now i cant wait to do it .i don’t have a spray booth and when weather permits i go outside .this cart makes it a lot easier to roll it out ..its pretty compact right out of the box ,almost to lite .i used 3/4 inch ply for this to give it some weight so i wouldn’t pull it over .the air intake is on the bottom i was having to set it on a board r something when using to keep the dirt from being pulled in. this way it sits up on a pedestal.added a cord attachment on the back for easy of getting to it ,it don’t come with a cord clamp but Serge a fellow LJ posted a easy fix for that and it worked well

thanks for looking and the mags make it a sweeter ride i mean cart

Great cart. Bring it over and we can test it out. Actually, you would have to also have to bring a project to spray.

I like the solid storage.

Great shop addition.

Is it a NASCAR cart that only makes left turns…
Or is it a Formula1 road course cart???

Good thing that is an HVLP sprayer otherwise the unit could move by itself like a jet propelled car.

Nice build Eddie, neccesity is the mother of …. you know the rest!

Looks great Eddie. I’ve never used a sprayer, but when I do, this seems like just the rig.

Eddie, That’s a ‘Gr8’ cart.
I’ve just been coiling cord and hose back to on board storage, not really that many extra steps, but your cart does take the worry out of accidentally dragging the unit off the bench top, which I’ve almost accomplished a couple of times. Well for safety and ease of storage, I’m rethinking my cabinet storage and I rather like your NASCAR (Paint) CUP Series design.

Best Regards. – Len.
