For many years if I was in my truck, the generator was in back, never did drag along a full size TS or BS though.

Cordless??? Why ya need cordless…..

I wondered how this person dealt with rain or snow. Talk about flash rust!

Bandsaw? wow, now that’s a craftsmen.

Rust? Hah, was that guy working in desert area? We desert rats don’t have near problems rest of world has with rust. :)

Construction guy I know here in AZ has a Unisaw and Delta 12” radial arm mounted on back end of custom trailer with generator. Covers with tarp over night, stores in garage when at home. Has a hardwood/Masonite sheet for table saw when not being used. Uses it most everyday. Claims he cleans of some surface rust about twice a year with WD40, or when forgets cover and it rains. Been using it that way for over a decade that I have known him. I thought this was normal for mobile carpenter shop in desert? LOL
Next time I am visiting him and trailer is there, will take a pick.
