For a long time I have wanted to make my rotary cutter a bit more mobile in the barn. I have been back and forth with metal and wood, but this plan is for wood. I need to be able to support the full 1100 pounds as I do not want the tail wheel on the ground. I have tested it with moving carts and the tail wheel seems to fight you when rolling.
So I was thinking 4x4's at first but bolting the 4" casters seemed to dictate a 6" wide structure. So my thought was to stack 2 2x6's on top of each other. This also allows me to stagger them to get more strength.
Then i thought about running a 2x6 upright to create an edge to keep the rc on the roller. Maybe not needed, but also helps you set it on the cart square.
My issue now is attaching the 4" rollers. I assume they would need to be bolted on. I also assume the nuts would be on top and maybe counter sunk into the top to allow for a flat surface. But I fear taking away strength.
Please take a look at my poor drawings and let me know your ideas.
