Tow behind light cartYou'll like this handy "light cart" put together by an Ontario farmer to make it safer to pull wagons and drive unlighted equipment down the road after dark.
William E. Douglas, Alvinston, took the back end off an old truck and fitted it with turn signals and flashing lights. Then he made a small platform and mounted a battery and auto alternator on it, belt-driving the alternator off the rear end universal joint which is turned by the wheels. A simple wagon tongue was fitted to the front of the cart.
'We use it to pull behind all types of farm wagons and machinery," says Douglas, who says he spent about $265 in all to build the cart.
