A slightly demented friend of mine bought this thing today. It came out of a nearby ranch. Any clues as to maker, date of manufacture, etc? Also, does anybody have any information about the hub innards? He wants to clean it up and use it as a business prop, old style equipment. I may even drag it with my TT.
It's about 12' 6" axle to axle with a track of about 4' 6". I may be looking for data that does not exist, could be home made.
Looks like a wagon. Impliment wheels.
Photo quality wont let me get a better look on my phone.
Looks like someone cut the steel tires off the wheels and welded the car type rims on. Unless you can find manufactures marks on the hubs, probable anything else that would tell who made it would be long gone.
Homemade trailer made from angle iron and steel pieces found around a working farm. The wheels are off of some type of implement wagon or equipment. I have a 50's era pull behind spray rig that has wheels almost like these.
Thanks for your comments! You've pretty much confirmed what I was thinking.
Sorry for the poor photo quality. Light was bad and time was short....
I used to have a small gravity box on a running gear like that and i think the one i had was IH.Straight roller bearings like the rear end of a T only larger.Depending on the tire size say 600x16" it might have came new with drop center rims.Grease it and if the steering is good you should make 35 mph. Did i say grease it? Bud. Is the reach all steel or wood?
