PostSubject: hitches   Mon 27 Dec 2010, 9:06 pm

Hey guys (and gals). I'm using the dollies for my barrel train frames and I have been looking for a bolt on or weld on type flange to use the trailer ball on; the bottom of the dolly in other words which will become the back when horizontal. I cannot find it. With all your experience with these things, I thought you may have a few ideas. I have the "tounge" part figured out. I may end up having to have them made. I hope all is going great with everyone's post Christmas days. It was probably the best Christmas I've ever had. Both daughters/sons-in-laws and all the granbabies were here at once. I have five grandbabies, two great grandbabies and I'm only 57, but I love it. They are the reason I'm doing all this. Thanks once again and have a wonderful week.

I really don't want to use a hitch pin. I'm using a regular hitch. I think I got it figured out. Didn't mean to bother anyone. Thanks.

No. Either an ATV or lawn tractor. That's why I've been looking for the right mower. We pull hay wagons with the ford.

On what Jarod? If you're talking about the forum problem, I had to get KW to help out. If you're talking about the lawn tractor, no, I haven't found anything yet. Thanks for asking.

I bought a dolly from TS to see how that will work. I think it will. I googled a few and others have done it and it seems ok. They're kinda pricey ($70.00 ea.), but that's ok. I only need 5. I have drawn plans for a caboose, fire truck, police car, airplane and a street rod. They will each have something that works for the kids to play with during the ride. I'm gonna start with the caboose since it requires the most carpentry. A friend of mine is a finish carpenter and he's going to help me. My wife says I'll have a small fortune in it, but that's ok too. The kids will really enjoy it. Once I get everything together, I will document the build and post it in hopes of helping someone else. Thanx for the interest.
