Caddy Pulls Triple Axle Trailer Behind Baler
The "caddy" consists of the wheels and axle from an old pickup with a drawbar bolted to the front. Godbout hitches the caddy between his small baler and trailer. The trailer mounts on a ball hitch welded onto the caddy axle.
To build the trailer Godbout bought a tongue and triple axles designed for a mobile home. He cut and widened the axles, then used 6 by 6-in. I-beams to build a frame which he covered with wooden planks. Godbout also uses the trailer to retrieve round bales from the field. He pulls the trailer with a ball hitch on the tractor drawbar. He sets the front end of the trailer on the ground while loading bales with the tractor, then hooks up to the trailer again for transport, all without leaving the tractor seat. He also pulls the trailer behind a pickup to trans-port equipment.
