That looks really good maybe try a different tape so you don't peel off paint.

DOOD!

Great minds and all that!!!

I had EXACTLY the same thought, on tuesday, this week. Yesterday I bought some u-bolts so that when I finally do get the hand truck out, to make into a trailer, I can bolt a couple of those long, metal reinforced plastic milk crates to it!

I may not connect it to the tractor exactly the same. And I'll do it without the extra wheel up front. But it is exactly the same idea!

The only extra thought I have is that it may become 'tippy' going around the steep angled corners I have to negotiate. So I may end up scrapping the handtruck part of the idea and just buld a similar trailer, with a wider wheelbase. Or widen the wheelbase on the hand truck before I use it. (Which is why I hadn't already done exactly as you have done. LOL)

Good work!
