I have come across this trailer with swivel wheels on it. I guess you fix it to the tractor itself? Does anyone know the model number and is it something that would suit a 1254 or a 800? Apparently it came off a Bolens G10. I know it is the newer colour green for the later Boens models but I could paint it white or whatever. Have anyone got a brochure or photos for this trailer. Yours help would be appreciative as always. Thanks

I think I've seen paperwork somwhere, I'll take a look.

This is from around 1979 to mid 80's

I would think it fits solid on the GT and swings really wide when you turn.

I had a school teacher friend that had a 1 wheel trailer he pulled behind a van.

We were going across an old wooden floor bridge...The kind that has extra boards where the right and left wheels travel, well, you guessed it. When the 1 wheel in the center droped off the pavement there was a big thud, and when it hit on the other side, it bounced about 4 foot off the ground!!

There's a similar trailer advert from Ŵheel Horse that showed it transporting some plants around the garden. In truth it's one of those things that is only useful for certain small jobs. A bigger trailer would be more practical than this exMple but it's a nice thing to have in my collection of accessories.

I believe that is part of the "PowerPacker" collection system and not a standalone cart.
