Pull Behind Wagon/Cart

Postby T-Mo » Sun Jun 16, 2019 7:46 am

I know the subject has been brought up before on hay type wagons. I saw a thread that mentioned a running gear from Northern Tool for around $400 or so, so since I have been thinking about finding a hay type wagon, I decided to browse their website. I did find the one mentioned earlier, but I also found this:

https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools ... _200665118

Kinda of neat, I think, and though maybe a bit small, it looks pretty rugged. Most of the hay wagons I been finding used, I way too big for my little Cubs or my garden tractors, but this one looks to be nifty. Also check out the video they have on it.

I've seen that on display. It seemed rugged, but pricey.

I'd like to find a nice, narrow wagon to haul wood with. Somethong flat, but not too low. Maybe like the size of an IH manure spreader, but a little taller.

Well that is different. Looks pretty rugged for the size.

The biggest negative I see is the dual wheels. A lot of those wheel barrow sized tires seem to always need some air added. Airing up the inner tires may get old fast.

My thoughts exactly! I’m always having to bring those little tires up to pressure on whatever they are on. Wagons, two wheelers, wheelbarrows, etc. they just don’t want to hold air for any length of time.

Wonder if you could fill the tires with foam.

Yes, it’s possible but it would cost quite a bit. Tire foam is fairly expensive.

Tubes? Since most of the wheelbarrow type tires are tubeless and thin, I'd try tubes if you were constantly having to air them up. At around $5 each not to costly of an experiment. It looks like the wheels come off easy with a lynch pin holding the axle. I bet you would get good at breaking them down by the time you finished.

The tires that I’ve been airing up do have tubes in them. I think they are probably poor quality imports.

I put Slime in those tires and any other offroad tire that leaks.
It has worked really good and the tires rarely ever leak again.

Tube or tubeless, most of them won't hold air. Good quality tubes seem to fix the problem but they cost more than the cheapies. If you buy good tubes, you'll notice they weight considerably more than cheap ones do. Slime should work too.

Cheap tubes usually leak at the valve a lot of times you can get away with using metal semi truck type valve stem caps they usually have a rubber gasket in them which holds the pressure, a lot of the cheap tubes have a plastic valve cap with no seal . TJ

I test rode a garden tractor last year that I was interested in and as I turned to come back one of the rear tires collapsed on the rim. It was loaded with the green slime that apparently didn't work, it had gone flat anyway. I'm not a fan of that stuff. A good tube is the best remedy. I passed on the tractor.

If you use Slime (or other type sealers) and you decide to use a tube later, the cleanup of the tire and rim to use a tube is a considerable mess!!!!

Slime is quick and easy, and yes it is not the best solution. However, if you are looking at breaking down a tire, getting a tube, and probably sanding and painting a rim, it can be a good stop gap measure to keep the tires rolling. Yes, it can create a mess in a tubeless tire, yes it is not really the proper method to fix a tire. But, I have had it work so many times where the cost and time to to do the job right was prohibitive, I find it is a good product to have on the shelf.
Many times an old dry rotted lawn mower tire will survive for many years on slime.
