Cart For ATV
No one seemed to make a substantial cart for ATV's so we decided to build our own. We used new wheels, tires, bearings, and stub axles that came in a kit sold byGempler's of Mt. Horeb, Wis. (ph 800 382-8473). I welded the stub axles onto 1 1/2-in. steel tubing. We fitted it with leaf springs that came in a kit from Surplus Center in Lincoln, Neb. (ph 402 474-5167) which was the only place I could find light, 500-lb. capacity springs. I got the spring shackles from Northern Hydraulics in Burnsville, Minn. ( ph 612 894-0326). The box size is 3 by 5 ft. We bought new 1 /8 by 1 1/4-in. square tubing for the frame, siderails, and tongue and covered the sides and bottom of box with sheet metal.
This is a handy cart, easy to make, and comes in handy for hauling bales, wood, fixing fence, and so on. We could sell plans if there's interest. (Lyle Wacker, RL 2, Box 87, Osmond, Neb. 68765 ph 402 582-4874)
