Mein Bierwagen Part 4 – Getting the Keezer onto the Bierwagen

As I mentioned in the previous post (Part 3: Bicycle wheel attachment), the other feature about Mein Bierwagen that I think is cool, is the loading of my Keezer Dolly directly onto the cart.  This post shows you how to do it.  Using the ramp method, I can do it myself, but you’ll need two people at least if you just build it as a platform for your own Keezer.

Difficulty: level_3

This project just requires some basic building skills, but you might need some help getting the keezer onto the Bierwagen.

Part 6: Storage of the Bierwagen

Procedure:

First you need to remove the support legs at the front of the Bierwagen.

015-6 - Legs installed

Then with it right side up, you’ll brace it against a wall.

Next, you need to line up your keezer dolly at the tip of the cart.  Notice, I haven’t installed the keezer collar yet.  I wanted to make sure it wasn’t too tippy.

You can see that the keezer dolly just clears the leading edge of the cart.  If yours isn’t tall enough, you can either cut the bottom side of the handles (front of cart) or lift up a bit to get it up on the rails.

Keep pushing the cart up the “ramp”.

You’ll need to remove the lateral board to get the keezer all the way up.

Then, once the keezer is all the way up, reinstall it.

015-4 - Front stop back in place

Now just wheel it over and prop the front up on something so that you can reinstall the legs.  I used some jack stands and they worked great.

There, look how happy it looks.  Feed me!
