A walk-behind tractor in the household is such a useful thing that sometimes it is even difficult to immediately imagine all its possibilities. For example, if you make a trailer for a walk-behind tractor, you can use it to transport rather significant loads over long distances.
It is necessary
- - rectangular pipe 60x30 mm;
- - square tube 25x25 mm;
- - springs and wheels from the Moskvich-412 car;
- - channel # 5;
- - duralumin sheet 2 mm;
- - sheet 0.8 mm;
- - fasteners;
- - welding machine and electrodes;
- - grinder;
- - jigsaw for metal;
- - screwdriver and other tools.
Make the trailer frame aligned with the body frame grille. Cut two spars from rectangular pipes 60x30 mm, and two traverses (front and rear cross members) from a steel square pipe 25x25 mm. Weld them together and secure with five crossbars to form a platform grid. Please note: the cross members and cross members should form small outlets relative to the side members.
Weld longitudinal pipes to the ends of the outlets on the sides of the frame, on which, in turn, install four racks. Weld the upper straps to the posts from the same square pipe 25x25 mm.
Make the front and rear sides hinged in order to be able to transport long loads on the walk-behind tractor trailer. To do this, perform their frames separately from the general frame.
Close the platform grill with a 2 mm thick duralumin sheet, screw it in with M5 countersunk screws. For the sides, you can use a thinner sheet, for example, 0.8 mm. Weld the side sheathing to the uprights and straps pointwise.
Weld the bridge beam from two identical sections of channel # 5, inserting them one into the other. Attach two wheel axles to the end of one of them. Close the gaps between the channels and the axis with strips cut from the steel sheet.
Take the springs and wheels for the trailer from the Moskvich-412 car, use the springs to connect the beam to the frame side members. In the center, weld them to the beam with stepladders, and attach the ends to the spars, putting one of them on the axis of the earring, and the other on the axis of the bracket.
Make a double-beam drawbar from a pipe with a cross section of 60x30 mm, and weld the rear ends to the front ends of the side members with an overlap of at least 200 mm. Dock the front ends of the beams and weld to the body of the towing hitch.
If possible, install brakes, signaling devices - side lights, turn signals, brake lights on a homemade trailer for a walk-behind tractor to make driving on the road safer.
