Custom-Built Feed Carts
The carts are commonly used for feeding livestock, moving animals, for cleanup jobs or for moving anything that's too heavy to carry. They're made of all-welded 14 ga. steel and painted white. The top perimeter is reinforced with a 1 in. iron pipe which forms the handles on both ends. Wheel brackets are made of 3116 in. steel plate. Usual widths vary from 18 to 30 in, in 2 in. increments. Usual heights vary from 30 to 40 in. Length is generally 40 in.
Larger sizes available on request.
The wheels have pneumatic or semi pneumatic tires and are equipped with zerks. The larger size wheels makes it possible to push them on hard packed dirt and over slatted floors, Mosdal points out. "We also make a vet tray to fit the top of the cart. It's 6 in. wide and about 1 in. deep. Made of the same white painted 14 ga. steel, it holds medicine and tools so the cart can be used for treating litters of pigs or other animals," says Mosdal.
