The geezer years continue to accumulate so decided to take a step to save my back. It seems I am always lifting some heavy gasoline powered device (tiller, pumps, snow blower, power washer, mowers, etc.) into the mule or truck to use at some location on our 17 acres.
I built a small low to the ground trailer with loading ramp to haul this stuff around without lifting. The trailer is built to lean up against a wall (out of the way) when not in use.
Weight limit is 600 pounds (because of the cheap wheels and tires). Of course, if I could lift 600 pounds I wouldn’t need the trailer in the first place! I don’t imagine the heaviest gas powered device weighs more than 200 lbs. 200 is my lift and regret it for a few days limit; speaking ground to tailgate high.

Dwight, keep an eye on those tires and bearings. I haven't had them last very long. I'm looking at a way to adapt some wheels and tires with better bearings. I don't need more weight capability, just longer life bearings.

25 gal pull behind sprayer, so I'm looking at 250 pounds max.

Nice work! I find myself using my hydraulic friend more as I get older.

I know the tires/wheels/bearings are pretty basic and won't have a long life in a more "active" application. For around the acreage and for the price (17.93 a pair, including shipping on Amazon) they should be sufficient.

Nice work Dwight. If you are lifting 200 lbs you need to use a belt - as a geezer that is.
