those are not hard to make, find a piece of "stress proof" rod and cut to length desired then drill holes for roll pins, done. I would definitely add a pillow block bearing where convenient to help it spin true and avoid vibration.
I have seen lots of Cub Cadets stretched to make something like you are talking about, usually they are made into something like a 2 or 4 person butt buggy with a canopy top.

On my my pullers i use usually stainless steel rod and make my own coupler to connect the input shaft. I use a pillow blocks on all of them as well seeing that all the stress is mainly on the drivetrain itself.
