Gooseneck Grain Trailer
Ron Homan, Larchwood, Iowa, built this gooseneck trailer in his farm shop to cut down hauling time between the combine and bin.
The dual-wheel axle was salvaged from a 50-series Chevrolet truck. The frame is 3/16 by 2 by 8-in. channel iron reinforced in the corners with 1/4-in. steel plate. The trailer is wired with lights and has vacuum-over-hydraulic brakes.
Homan says the gooseneck hitch makes the wagon much easier to move into narrow spaces, or to back into storage buildings, than four-wheel trailers. The extra hitch on the back is used to pull empty wagons to the field to save an extra trip.
