Old Wagon Running Gear Makes Low-Cost Grain Platform Trailer
Jim Cook, Zearing, Iowa, converted a wagon running gear into a low-cost trailer that he uses to haul his combine's 20-ft. grain platform.
  "I use it mainly to keep the grain platform off the floor in my shed. I just back the trailer up into the shed. It's a bit crude because it doesn't have a floor, but it does the job," says Cook. "I already had the wagon running gear so it cost very little to build."
  He lengthened the running gear by 4 ft. and mounted a 1-ft. high wooden board on one side of the trailer. "I lay the platform on the trailer with the sicklebar resting on the board, which keeps the sicklebar from sagging," notes Cook.
