My solution to fix Little John on the trailer. Backwards it's fixed w/ a tension belt. I only need two wooden logs (10/4/4 inches) in front of the tires and voilá - ready

 

edit: sorry, forgot the pics...

Looks good. Is that ABS pipe? I usually chain the back end of mine down to the anchors in the trailer and then strap the front down over the axle. I also add a small strap over the hood to keep it from flying up in the wind.

Pardon Brian,  what`s ABS? It's a plastic pipe, light and easy to handle. First I thought to take a steel pipe, but it's to heavy. In former times, I fixed the gt front axle, but then, I damaged the steering and so I found this solution.

A neat way to keep him in place. And a place to keep small things in the front.

Looks like a nice solution.
Being plastic, will they hold up in a panic stop or impact?

Here is a link that explains two of the most common plastic pipes used over here.

Therefore I'll place the two logs in front of the tyres. The forces were conducted in thee frontwall and the frame of the trailer. I've tested the construction and it works. :thumbs:

Can be ABS. It's not so hard and fragile like PVC.

I use PVC for guides on my boat trailer and I have broken a few in windy conditions over the years.. I tie my tractor axle to 3/8th eyebolts that are through frame of trailer. The rear is anchored to tractors hitch,,nothing ever moves. Are you concerned with scuffing paint on your tractor,,,looks very pristine. You could wrap a rag(or a silk scarf) around axle and then put strap on it..Thats a very nice tractor!.

I throw straps everywhere that gains me tension needed to unitize tractor to trailer. But I don't worry about scuffing the paint verses losing a tractor... Which is way tougher to touch up with a can of paint. Looks like a good solution for you.

Okay, tomorrow I'll drive to an event and so I had to load today - 35 °C in the shadow here this time. 95 °F is too much for a North Hesse!

No matter, I had ti fix Little John on the trailer and now, I think, he's fixed!

Tractors are made for use - and everyone can see, that LJ isn't brand new. Thanks, I like my 112, too! And i think, the Gator and the 112 are a good "harnessed team"!
