Been meaning to build a small hay rack for some time.    Big brother gave me a Wheel Horse A 90 That he had saved from the scrap yard.   No engine and the rear eand was locked up.  After stripping it down, I reversed the front axle, made a one peice  tie rod with new ends, and attached a length of black pipe over the tie rod.    Then I attached a tongue to the black pipe with a pin.  I can remove the tongue for storage or room on the trailer.  I then welded a framework with supports to fit the L.T. chassis.  Yesterday and today I painted the wagon frame then cut, installed and varnished some decking boards for the floor and rear rack.  It is ready for tommorrow's fourth of July  parade.   I plan on pulling it behind  the Massey Executive, and be hauling big brother's Choremaster.    Should have family members driving five to seven garden/lawn tractors in the parade.     Rick

The unit trails very well.  But it would be easier to push a snake than to backup that hay rack!!    :D    Rick

WOW! You did a fantastic job on the wagon!

I have been thinking about some type of build with the front end and frame of a Wheel Horse to make a 2 wheel cart of sorts......Maybe with a seat on it.

 

BUT, after seeing your wagon the coggs are turning in my head!

I've got pics of the line-up.  Just waiting for grandkids to argue over who drives which one.
