Default lawn/garden cart

i built this project probably ten years ago, i was looking at it as i drug it out of storage today and luckily my welding skills have improved alot since then LOL.

the bed is 30" wide 45" long and 11" deep. all the lumber on it is treated 2X and the entire frame is made from 11ga tubing. it is safe to say it is built in typical tigman fasion and is hopelessly overbuilt. the tires were scavanged off of an old John Deere lawn mower headed for the bone yard, the hubs were originally splined so i bored them out and pressed in a bronze bushing for a 1 1/4" shaft, a grease zerk was added to the hub to make maintenance a breese. i made the hinge just in front of the axle and a simple spring loaded latch on the tounge heeps it secure.
