Michael and Connie Kenner got tired of getting stuck in soft ground with their hand truck. They turned the 2-wheeler into a 6-wheeler, and now it goes just about anywhere.
“It was great except on soft dirt or sand. “We added four wheels to the axle, and that solved the problem,” says Michael.
The Kenners have a couple of acres in the city. At 76, Michael appreciates how handy the hand truck is for moving potted plants and a few 55-gal. barrels he has put to use.
“I have a lot of stuff, and some of it’s getting hard to move by hand,” says Kenner.
Adding the wheels was fast and easy on this particular hand truck. “Others might be more challenging, but all I had to do was pull one cotter pin,” he says. “The axle slipped straight out, and I added the wheels with some pvc spacers to keep them from rubbing into each other.”
Kenner says he appreciates all the great ideas in FARM SHOW and hopes the go-anywhere hand truck idea will help someone else.
