Got the crappy lawn tractor out of hibernation.  Rear end was rattling end of last year and I wanted to try out some ramps i made for my rickety old trailer

Trailer gets it up where i can work on it

Now I need to figure out why it is rattling, hope it is something simple.

 

Post up some pics of your tractor-trailer rigs i like looking at them.  Found a bigger trailer i'd like to get but the car is in the shop for now

Start looking at the pulley on top of the transaxle, had one do that about a year ago, Had to take it off and put two set screws in it.

 

Sorry quoted wrong post, this was meant for Old FORD.

That's my steel wagon with drop sides over behind the garage, it's a handy one too, has a 1000 # capacity and a hand pull and a trailer hitch pin hole. Got it for $35 off CL. The trailer is a modified 12' with 3500 # capacity.

Did you make that from scratch, does it have suspension?  Looks nice and low

How does the Deutz Allis run?  they look pretty rugged

Thanks JDD.  The pulley seems ok but it is almost impossible to turn by hand.  I seem to remember last year i checked and it was easy to turn it by hand and spin the wheels.  The engine turns it ok but the driveline makes a heck of a rumble.  I will try removing the pulley but i think it might be inside the gearbox

This is the one I have now . 5x8 - inside It has been a great trailer for over 10 years a lot of miles and many loads in this thing. I refurbished it a couple years ago (paint and rust removal)new sides .  I think I need to let it go  , I can't get more than one tractor on it and I want to haul more now so I am looking at bigger models.

The Deutz ran great, power steering was sweet, but it was traded along with the Gilson for my current Simplicity 4041 utility with front end loader.

the flat bed makes a good work station.  got the rear wheels off the ground, with a tool box on the seat i could spin the wheels and get underneath to see what was going on

Can't really tell where the noise is coming from but it don't sound good

 

 

 

Being up in the air makes it easy to service the rest of it.  Had a winter squatter

I'm happy with my $100 old sled trailer.  Not much good for hauling long distance but for local runs and around the yard behind a gt it is pretty handy.  With the sides i can get 1/4 cord of wood in there but with the wheels forward there's not much room in the rear for weight or it will sway.

I checked out your trailer build came out nice.  Looks like the torsion axle has 4 rubber rods running inside the axle for spring...?

 

I had a torsion motorcycle trailer it hauled a 700lb. bike around the country no problems.  Including the DC and MD beltways, that is some crazy traffic down there.  Put it in the fast lane and try to keep a safe cushion... at 90mph

There's a lot of great ideas here!

 

If you use your imagination, squint real hard and maybe even do some stiff drinks my trailer idea might be visible!---LOL! Plan is to use the rear axle out of "the ol' grey mare" that my wife drove for a few hundred thousand miles. It still drives, just doesn't have 3rd and 4th gear any more. I was thinking about even leaving some of the floorboard and using the mounting points. That's a ways down the road. Been robbing parts off it for other projects. Don't know how much longer she'll let me keep it but she doesn't understand how much junk I have stored in it now either!--LOL!
