This cart has been sitting in the ditch for a long time. I walked up to the door and they said anyone that wants it can have it. It only needs a new set of tires and a tail gate

I really need a riding mower. Hoping someone will throw away one soon or have a cheap one on craigslist.

If it's anything like mine, the tail gate is a flat piece of steel with a lip at the top. Not to hard to fab up.

Awesome find. cheers

EDIT: Where are you at in Ohio. I may be able to help with the tractor part.

The company stamped on it is Agri-fab, I've never heard of them before. The first thing I have to do is find a tire with a 3/4" axle bore in the rim. Then find a 4.00x6.00 tire for the other rim (the one that was on the cart) because it is really dry rotted. The tailgate part should be easy. I don't plan on running it through rough terrain, I do a lot of lawn care and snow removal so I will most likely be hauling push mowers and snowblowers.

It's cool. I'm west of the city.

I forget that I'm blessed with a trainer to haul junk home in.

I just used a couple front lawntractor tires on my trailers - one i bot new from harbor freight for like $70 , paint's all faded and the original tires were junk -i used a couple tires with wheel berings in them - only thing was i needed a longer 3/4" piece of round steel- its pretty cheeply made, but it works.

My nephew gave me his old 10cubic yard trailer - i bot another piece of round steel and just slapped a spare set of wheels on it - that one is definitely better then the harbor freight one- its super heavy duty.

Most ive seen on craigslist go for $100 and up ( beat up, tires flat and well used) - one time a free one came up and it was like gone way before i called .

Agrifab is from Lowes - i recently bot a seed spreader/yard areator from a thrift store for $40 - its an agrifab- originally the thing went for like nearly $300.

Check home improvement stores ocassionally also - i picked up a husquvarna zturn complete bagger setup for $30 - retailing for $350- was still in the box- i need to make it fit on one of my tractors.

New tires are on, Tailgate is built, now I just have to wait for some warmer weather to paint. Going to paint the tailgate black and touch up a few spots on the trailer. I made a little support wheel in the front just to keep the trailer on a little slant to let the water drain off it when I'm not using it. Used a old craftsman push mower wheel for that.
