    Default My new rotating axel drop deck style trailer

    Ok its been awhile since I have been here , so I thought I would stop in to let you guys in on my new project / proto type .

    The idea was to not have to use ramps to load bikes, lawn mowers ,golf carts and so on .. I never liked the tilt style trailers ,and I have seen some other drop deck style trailers out there like Baxley and a few others that are over complicated with electric , air ride and hydrulic.. so I wanted BUILD something simple with a hanD crank set up .. but not a boat winch cable set up .

    the acuator im planing on using is a tong jack mounted horizontal to a arm .. not in the pics yet .. a few bugs and design to work out .. 3 different ways to set this up .

    hope the pics come out .

    a few more pics to come ... as things go along ... collars were built into the axel where the springs and u-bolts attach incase you were wondering .. grease fittings for lube as things rotate .. ignore the last 2 pics .. old trailer .

    ran into a snag yesterday , the acuator arm on the center of trailer axel may have to be moved .. so back to the drawing board .

    Cool

    Thats nice but. I can see future problems with the tube between the spindle and the axle. But since you are using it and not selling them to the public you may be OK. Because they would tear the thing up. My buddy has a drop tandem gooseneck and i like to watch it move when it drops down...Bob
