I have been looking at this from northern tool https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools ... 7661_47661 to build my own.

I have this one https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools ... _200135074 which I have been happy with but have been looking for a wagon.

That looks like a nice wagon, but the review are all over the place. If you do build one, I took the liberty to download some of the images from the reviews on the builds the reviewers had. The red one was the tandem axle that was on Northern Tool's site also.

I have one of these, bought it 7 years ago. It is basically a good wagon gear. There were some details that I decided needed a little rework when I put it together. The modifications weren't difficult or expensive. I think it made the wagon more durable and improved functionality. If anyone gets one of these (or probably anything else made by Farm-Tuff), I can fill in the details.

I bought one of these used. TSC used to sell them as did some others. Might find one on Craig's List or at a used implement dealer (that's where I found mine). There was one for sale at the Bangor PA show last Fall so they're around.

And built this from the chassis (see link above).

This has been on our local CL for a few weeks. So, I sent him an email asking for dimensions - he's supposed to get back to me soon. It's hard to tell how big or small it is, so....But I might go get in front of it this weekend.

Berryman's...It has fixed both major and minor leaks and is water based so it won't screw up your rims. I swear by it.

Judging by the scale of things around it, I'd say 7 or 8 feet long, not including the tongue.

Looks like it’s been shortened. Those are usually pretty long trailers. I didn’t give it much of a go since I’m on my phone, but if you can see the seams in the tin, may be able to guess pretty close.

In looking at the rust in the center section, I wonder if the length is adjustable.

Typically, yes. This looks like a trailer used for hauling pipe, and they were/are usually adjustable. But of course, they can be used with deck also

It looks pretty big to my eye.
Scaling from the siding is a good idea. It’s just under 5 panel-widths long. Unfortunately, that’s not a siding profile I’m familiar with. Maybe 32” wide panels? That would put it about 13’ Long, outside to outside, tire to tire. So something in the vicinity of 11’ axle to axle.

Should we make this a contest? :{_}:

OK, knowing nothing about off-brand wagons, I'll take a few guesses. The one new tire is a 9.50-15. Assuming they didn't go overboard with an oversized tire, the wagon is probably rated for 10,000 pound or greater capacity. The wheelbase looks like it is adjustable and set towards the shortest position. Wheelbase adjustment range is probably about 7 feet to 10 feet. Add about 3 feet to get overall length, not counting the tongue. Overall width is about 7 feet. The bolsters are about 2 feet off the ground. It probably weighs about 800 pounds, maybe less if I guessed too high on the capacity.

As stated, this is all just a guess.

I'd say it's pretty big, compared to the Northern Tool unit shown earlier in this thread. I'm only going off the lugs on the wheel. There's (6) of them. That's a pretty big wheel.

But, I could be wrong. Let us know T-Mo what you find out... :thanx:

OK. If the wheel (not including the tire) closest to the camera is 15 inches, it scales to 1 inch on my screen. Total length of running gear from outside to outside of left side tires scales to 5.25 inches on my screen. 15" X 5.25 = 78.75" / 12 = 6.5625 feet.

Did you exclude the rim flanges in the 1 inch measurement? They would add about 2 inches to the 15. Keep in mind the side view was at some angle as well. One inch on the screen covers more length at the rear of the wagon. You could measure both left rims and use the average.

Compared to the Northern Tool running gear, you can probably multiply everything by about 1.75 or 2.
