This post was originally published on September 27, 2011. I actually found this one somewhat amusing AND depressing. Why? Well, this particular hayrack represents one of our equipment success/failures. We did a fine job building the deck, but we never did get the front wheels to turn left/right freely on this thing - which made it only moderately useful on a small farm where turning is actually an important feature for a trailer. This running gear still sits on our farm. The deck has some problems now and it still won't turn. If someone wants to take a crack at it, we'll make a good deal for it!
The running gear was picked up at a late summer auction. It has a few problems - one of which is the simple fact that the tongue/front wheels will NOT turn. That's the next task.
But, the lumber came from the old building that came down several years ago. The lumber has been salvaged and some of it put to use here.
I know this. Therefore, I must not be able to count.
