Modifying a hand cart
Nancy in comments said I need a hand cart to help move the heavy sacks of feed around. So this morning while chair hopping I was wondering if I had any wheels that might work to build a cart, so I looked and found these big things but that might be just what I need to get around this place. Now if I have something for an axle I’ll be good to go so I looked through my stuff for one.
Testing the tires
I aired up the tires with ten pounds and will check them to see if they hold air.So far they seem too, I’ll check them again tomorrow.
Hand cart to hand truck
I had this light weight hand cart with too little wheels I don’t use much so I got it out and decided to use it to convert into a larger better hand truck. I needed to remove the axle so I got the saws all out to cut the welds off to remove it.
Slowing the job down
I decided to leave it for now as it’s always a good idea to think about stuff longer when building stuff to get a better job.
And besides I wanted to go up in the forest for a quad runner ride so I got my stuff together and headed out in the later afternoon.
No Bo trailer
When I was riding past my neighbors place I saw they had a new trailer and saw him outside so I stopped to shoot the bull about it for a bit. His wife heard us talking and came out to join us and I got the grand tour of things. Nice looking rig that is very functional.
Riding the trail
Eventually I headed back home for some chair hopping, some watering and puttering.
The last thing I did was have another look at the cart modification. I think this might make a nice cart after I make the base larger so the big sacks will sit on it. I’m thinking I want to make the base large enough to place the sacks on their sides as that way I can carry more.
