Power Trac PT-422
Looking to make some carts for my attachments. I have some of the smaller ones on moving carts. It makes it real nice to move them around my garage with out using the tractor. Trying to figure out a way to make one for the wheel trencher. It is too tall and top heavy. any suggestions

Without having the dimensions of the wheel tencher, I's say make it wider at the bottom than the top by a factor of three.

That is, if its a foot wide at the top, make it three feet wide at the bottom and as low as possible. Get some wide wheels (like the ones I posted a link to in one of the mower/brush hog threads a couple days ago) and just use 3/4" bolts for axles. Find some wide casters for the front or make your own by copying the PT casters.

Went to Harbor Freight, spent $16.99 for a dolly. Had some 2x4's laying around. Made a very useful cart for my trencher. Works nice.

Yep, looks good like wood should. I used an old 2x12 and three 6" castors for my SSQA to 3 point adapter. It is more stable than I thought it would be.

I had a heavy duty castor that was an inch and a half shorter than the big ones, so I made a "T" cart for the tree puller.
