"Fidledball" Axle-free Transport System
The Fieldball transport system is designed to carry even the heaviest loads across farm fields with almost no compaction. Itís like nothing youíve ever seen before.
  The 7-ft. dia. balloon-like tires extend across the width of the trailer with no axle. Key to success of the design are 17 rollers across the top of the tires which spread the load out across the undercarriage. Carrying a 25-ton load, ground compaction is less than 7 psi. Larger 12-ft. dia. tires are on the drawing board. The inventor is looking for a manufactuer.
