A while back I bought a Cub Cadet 1620 with a bad hydro.  It had a newer replacement 17 hp engine with low hours that went into my main mower.   The frame became a donor for a small wagon.  It was a matter of spare parts and extra paint.   I'll probably put some brackets and boards on the back to make a small hay rack.  Rick

I have built 2 of those and made seats for them and when I took them to the tractor shows nether one made it back home, somebody saw them and offered more then I could turn down. That  is a nice trailer.

Terrific idea.  I've been trying to figure out how to get rid of my broke down Murray.  Think this will be an excellent choice.

Just have to take out the destroyed transaxle and replace with bar stock...at least that's the plan.

One question: How to rig the front steering to the drawbar?  Probably a no brainer were I to ponder it for a while, but would appreciate a bit of input.

I now have an idea to do this to a craftsman chassis I have. Or would the wheel horse chassis be better? Wow, I really need to look at the options tomorrow of course none of the wheels or tires would match in the end but oh well. This could be a good alternative to buying a new four wheel garden cart.
