An early Simplicity Wonderboy?  http://www.simpletra.../wonder_boy.htm
Maybe a Snapper RER.

Snapper Rear engine is what I thought of first but looks a little to heavy built.

Could be old Ariens rer or possibly Jacobson? Definitely not snapper and it doesn't have the deck hangers built on like the Simplicity Wonder Boy.

 

 

Don't know what it's off of but that's a very heavy built axle. None of my garden tractors have spindles quite that heavy.They look alot heavier built than the 1" spindles on my Cub Cadet 582.

Wouldn't mind having that to use for steering axle on a 4 wheel cart. I've been digging around for a few months and found a garden tractor sized wagon design that will hold up to hauling some pretty heavy loads. I need a trailer that will haul 1000+ lbs and have zero tongue weight. The 2nd cart here is what I'm going to end up building. Really simple design. Model 7300 http://www.countryla...onstrailers.htm

Manual here with rough layout of how the steering axle works. http://www.countrymf...s/Model_300.pdf It's like a small hay wagon.They rate there wagon at 1 ton capacity which seems really high for the spindles they are using.

I am thinking it looks home made.

This looks too heavy built to me to be from a rear engine rider unless it was built in the 50's when everything was still overbuilt. I don't think its homemade either. I don't need and will probably move it on to someone else. It would help to know what's its from. It may be from something else completely.

Is the piece between the spindles solid or sound hollow? And what are the spindle diameters? Last but not least the width from spindle to spindle? Might be good for a project.
