got a workbench, tool cabinet and shelving

bought a 40ft container to store machines in. I want to put the plows and salters on the roof of the container because I'm limited with ground space at the yard so I had it reinforced.

Had hooks added to the top to strap things down.

That's all I've got for now

Don’t they stack full sea cans one atop of another?
why the need to reinforce the roof from the inside
?

couldn’t you have laid the tubes across the roof?
( on top)
Because when sea cans are stacked on one another, the corners are what’s touching/ bearing the weight.
The center part where the plows are going or whatever he’s putting up there is just pressed sheet metal, in fact jumping up and down on will dent it.

another reason why you should never bury containers if you’re prepping and looking for a fallout shelter.

Thank you sir

We’ve done a ton of self tappers on our sea cans with excellent results. I’ve been leery of putting things on top of mine. Let me know how the reinforced roof works out. Looks like a good idea to me.
Once I get the plows (x4) and salters (x3) up there I'll post some pics of how it's looking / holding up

couldn’t you have laid the tubes across the roof?

I could have yes, but I wanted it to be flat up there to make it easier to put the plows / salters up there. If I put them across I would have had to build a floor on top to get it flat again.

Ive stored small items on top of seacans for years, pick up sweeper goes up there, forks, buckets, anything under 1000 lbs really. Just put part on a side rail. Its not flat up there..
If you really think about it the floor is part of the structure, it has to hold the weight that is stored inside or disperse it to the rails when they are being stacked on ships, otherwise you would end up with 9 cans worth of contents in the bottom can.
Maybe flipping it over would make for a strong roof.... Then fill the bottom with dirt to drive on. Concrete if you dont plan on ever moving it again...lol .




Don't do that....

Pretty sure the bottom is just ribbed with tube steel.
Mine has a wood floor up until the where the king pin would go if they didn’t need special trailers
