The simplest trailer model
To build the construction needed in the household, you need to prepare:
- Steel tubes 60×30 mm and 25×25 mm;
- Rims and wheels (can be from a Moskvich car);
- Aluminum duralumin sheet with thickness of 2 mm;
- A piece of sheet steel with a thickness of 0.8 mm;
- A channel ;
- Fixing elements;
- Tools (electric jigsaw, angle grinder, welder and electric screwdriver).
- The frame of the trailer is a single piece construction, placed on a frame grid. For its arrangement is necessary to make two beams of angle 25×25 mm, which will act as a front and rear cross-members, and spars of 60×30 mm pipe. All elements are connected by means of five crossbars so that a grid is formed as a result.
- Simple model of the trailer with folding sides. very useful thing in the economy. With its help one can transport not only boxes and bags with harvested crops, but any long goods
- When erecting the platform for the cross-bars and beams, place them against the frame side members so that little slack is left over. To them the longitudinal tubes will be welded afterwards.
- To the longitudinal pipes with the help of welding attached four racks to the top of which is welded strapping 25×25 mm angle. To equip the trailer with folding sides, the frame is made separately from the frame. The platform grid is covered with aluminum duralumin sheet, fixing it with bolts. To board up the sides you can use thinner metal sheets, attaching them to the stringers and racks by welding.
- To make the beam, two channels of the same length are inserted into each other, equipping one end of the structure with wheeled axles. The ready-to-use beam is connected to the spars with the help of springs. For this purpose, the ends of the leaf springs are put on the bracket axle and the axle of the suspension eye, and the central part is welded to the beam with stepladders.
- Drawbar is made of rectangular pipes 60×30 mm. To make a double-beam structure, the front ends of the pipes are docked and welded to the body of the drawbar hitch and the rear ends are welded to the front ends of the longitudinal frame with a 200 mm overlap.
- The trailer is ready. If desired it can be equipped with stop lights, turn signals and parking lights.

Assembly tips for the adapter
Special equipment for power tillers can be easily made by almost any craftsman. To create an adapter, you need to take a tube that has a straight section, its length should be 1.7 m.
To one end perpendicularly will have to weld a tube, the length of which will be 0.5 m. This part will be the base to hold the racks under the wheels. The height of the struts from the axis to the top will be 0,3 m. In a new step, struts must be attached to the center tube and wheel bushing and secured. The length of the workpiece depends on the slope and angle.
The square frame can be any size. In our version, the following dimensions will be taken apart: 0,4 x 0,4 m. If you are going to make such an attachment for a power tiller yourself, you need to attach a channel to the rear end of the frame, the length of which will be 0.4 m.
