Can the Ultra-Fab Steel Micro-Roller be Installed on Featherlite Aluminum Trailer


I am looking at something like your UF48-979021 But they would need to mount on the rear of my featherlite aluminum trailer - model 4926 Any suggestions? Thanks


Expert Reply:

The Ultra-Fab Steel Micro Roller # UF48-979021 has a steel bracket that is designed to be welded to the frame of the trailer. If your Featherlite trailer has an aluminum frame, welding the # UF48-979021 will be tricky.

Aluminum has a much lower melting point than steel, so welding these two types of metals together is not easy. The best solution for welding the steel roller to an aluminum trailer frame is to take it to a qualified welder who is comfortable working with these two metals.
