  • Meat/Utility Trailer

    This is the first trailer I built with a walking beam axle. It turned out alot heavier than I wanted but tows really well. Does anybody know of rotating hitch assembly that could be added?

    Go with a pintle set up and you should be fine.

    And more machinery than you can shake a 7018 rod at

        Walking Beam Axle

        Thumpergman--The best way I can think of a walking beam is, a tandem wheeled trailer that revolves around a single axle. Thank-You Fishy Jim for the pintle hook idea--that should work really well.

            You can also make a rotating pintle mount pretty easily as well if you need even more off camber ability. The military has some like that you could use for ideas.

                one similar to this

                they make one for the hoop side as well, a source just escepes me at moment.

                they used them on the old military jeep trailers. I have a pintel on my grizzly and also my Rhino they are muchbeter than a ball mount.

                    no worries

                    the pintel is superior if you can get the spring setup for the hoop side you are unlimited on rotation, makes for unlimited articulation.

                      Sorry for late response. But here is the hitch I am planning to put on my off road trailer. 3 Axis and comes in kit or finished form.
