I bought this trailer from my neighbor 3 or so years ago because I wanted a 4 wheel trailer. Like so many of my other projects other stuff came up and it got put at the bottom of the list. The biggest problem it has is that it needs a tongue built. At one time the wagon rolled over and that's probably what killed the tongue. I haven't been able  to figure out who made it though. To me it looks like it maybe an older Ohio Steele model or potentially a very well homemade trailer. For at least the past 2 years it's had my brothers Farmall Cub loader sitting on it. Hopefully I'll get around to working on it one day.

Got any pics of the front axle? That may help figure out how a tongue needs to go.

That looks like a nice trailer.

Shouldn't take much to get it back together.

That will be fun to use. On the tongue, do a mock up and play with the length. Some trailers like long tongues, some don't.

Kenny made one from scratch, listen to his suggestions.

Oh, and does the funeral home know you stole their sign?

Here's the link to my wagon. It does not like to back up. I may have the tongue too long on it. But it does fine otherwise.

:bigrofl: Blame the trailer. :bounce:

 

I've got a bad 4 wheel wagon too. It seems it only wants to go forward. :bounce:

If you get yours taught to back up, let me know what I need to do to get mine trained!

Maybe all it takes Kenny, is one of those back up beepers.

I can see it now, Will and Kenny... One in Ontario, one on Oklahoma... Both trying to back up their trailers and yelling BEEP-BEEP-BEEP.

Mine always ends up in BEEPITY-BEEP-BEEPIN'-BEEP!

I don't have any pictures of if right now. I will try to get some next weekend.

That's not the only sign on that shed. The PO of our house was a guy that was cheap and would reuse any material he could get. A lot of our house is made of reused wood and other materials. If you want to see what the old shed looked like let me know and I'll post a picture.

 

Here's the link to my wagon. It does not like to back up. I may have the tongue too long on it. But it does fine otherwise.

 

Thanks for the link. I read through all the pages. You made a really nice wagon.

 

If you get yours taught to back up, let me know what I need to do to get mine trained!

 

I've tried backing up a real hay wagon before and it's hard, I didn't do to good when I tried.
