    Cool pics perry. I like the A.C. tractor. How old is that? What is the model, size, H.P., etc? Isn't it is surprising what a smaller tractor will do for work. You just have to give it a little thought, and wheels on a wagon help as well. :lol: How much wood do you burn a year? Is it your primary or secondary source of heat?

    the wagon has a front steering axle out of a old simplicity tractor. even has automotive style roller bearings/spindles. other trailer has bushings and i have had problems with the weight. recently picked up a pair of rims for the green trailer that fit 1" spindles and have roller bearings . i like to max out the weight in the trailers..lol. the tractors can handle it.

    Love the trailer. I would like a little heavier duty trailer that I could pull in the woods behind our lawn tractor. We do have one oversized wagon that the granddaughters love to take rides in, pulled through the paths in the woods by the little tractor. I use it to move wood around and it holds a lot but not nearly as much as yours. Mine is built with pressure treated wood over a riding mower chassis. Works pretty well.

    I wondered what ever happened to that old crate. Now I know!

    Nice shots, Perry. That front axle looks like a 700 or 900 series Allis Chalmers front end. Gotta love the roller bearing front ends.

    that looks like a good time with a little alcohol thrown in after the work is done. those kids seem to be enjoying themselves on the trailer ride.

    Nice old tractors there. That wagon is great! I want something like that. I figure I could load it up at the wood stack and leave it on the covered front porch for a week or so. Less wood handling.
