WTB: trailer dolly

I recently posted about wanted a log splitter, well have found one!! I am using it at my house were i dont have all my equipment and dont have room to tow it around with my tractor. I am in need of a trailer dolly to manuver it around from my garage to the wood pile. If you have on or know of one to buy, let me know. Thanks so much. I really dont want to pay much for one so if its used a bit, thats fine!!

Time to head to your local scrap metal place. Find a dolly or something you can scab the axles, wheels, and tires out of. Pull the ball off of an old truck. Grab an arm full of tube.

Spend an hour or two with your oxy-acetylene rig and stick welder and you can make something just like this:

Another memeber on here has a 5x10 open trailer and I think he used a trailer dolly. So i think it would work for yours.

no problem, I'v use the same pictured and moved a 6.5' by 14'. As long as it has the air tires and not the solid, it will work good in grass.
