Nice looking set up with the trailer in tow!
I see in your avatar you have a "front" caster, nice idea i think i will have to copy it if you dont mind.

Nice! Looks real good hooked up to the trailer. I'd like to make a 2 wheel tractor sometime. Thanks for posting the video.

I'm working on an update to the caster. It provides for a quick disconnect of only the caster. More later as it progresses.

Thanks for all the kind comments. I couldn't be happier with that engine. I don't know how long it had been setting, but long enough for the gas in the tank to not smell real good. The day I picked it up I took a spark plug wrench some new gas. Drained all the old out put in fresh pour a dab in the carb and threw the rope on her and boom she came to life. I got a can of Sea Foam put in the required amount and let it run for about an hour. Only had to adjust the needle on the bottom of the carb and that's how it's been running. Couldn't really ask for much more.

What about making it similar to these jacks with a castor on the bottom.
Posted Image
It has a clamp that holds the jack tube, you flip the lever you can see if you look closely, and it is like a quick release. You can then drop the jack tube down to the desired height and tighten the clamp. You could put a castor on the bottom of it and when you want it, lower it, when you don't lift it out of the way. Only question would be if it lifts if high enough to actually get it out of the way.
Just an idea.

Btw, Nice tractor.
