Had some building material left over from building racks for course tools ( shovels etc . ) I left it up to our Assistant Superintendent ( Joel Amirault ) the choice was 2 more single hitches or a double wide one .
Double wide was my new fabricating challenge .
Actually went very well and was an easy build . Materials are the same as my single ones . 1.5" square tube stock 1/8 " thick and 1.5" angle .
Best way is to use 2 spreader and build around them ,making sure wheels sit down in the frame to axle hits on angle iron .
Running one piece of tube stock down at the middle for the hitch point . These 2 in the rear are for the frame to sit on .
Built a ledge and then a catch . All you have to do is lift the front and pull out ....easy
slide some spacers under to weld brackets in place .
Mocking up the distance to the back of the cart .
Turned out well looks great .
The hitch point is a solid 1.25" square stock for strength.
Heating the tube stock red hot ,it was easy to just jack up an get a bit more angle to compensate for a good 100 lbs of fertilizer . After it cooled I tac welded on the sides to remove .
Adding the rebar here will prevent it from sagging . Worked great on the fairway dew drag . I can bounce up and down on the rear with no problems .
Primer and paint . Great little project . Mig welders make fabrication a breeze.
