    This happened last year but never got around to posting the pics. Leaf spring broke. After adding oil Super Z cranked right up, the bent stuff was fixed with a sledge hammer. Post your equipment failure pics if you have'em.

    I run a single axle sometimes and I can tell you my axle is twice the diameter of that one.

    That one looks like the axle to a little red wagon. Not a mowing trailer.

    I wouldn't consider going around the corner without strapping my mower down.
