Tandem Axle WagonOur tandem axle wagon built out of a junked-out 250-gal. fuel oil tank to pull behind our AN will haul half a cord of wood and is also fun to ride in. We cut the 5-ft. long, 4-ft. wide tank lengthwise in half and mounted it on four 13-in. wheels salvaged from old Honda cars. We also used the cars' spindles and leaf springs and we made a walking beam axle for the wheels out of 1 1/4-in. dia. steel rod. We used 3/8-in. dia. steel tubing to build the tongue which hooks up to a 1 7/8-in. ball that mounts on back of the ATV.
When we're not using the wagon to haul wood, we bolt one or two schoolbus seats to the floor and take people for rides, some-times in parades. Each seat holds two adults. (Curtis Steeves, RR 2, Petftcodfac, New Brunswick, Canada EOA 2HO ph 506 756-2504)
