    Storage cart with casters for implements

    I broke my HF dolly/cart one time too. However, I set the ballast box down a little too hard. You have to be real gentle with them. If you drop the implement too fast/hard, it causes a much heavier hit on the dolly/cart. So, once I learned this the hard way, I have never broken one again. So, in essence, dropping a 1,000# implement too hard could result in a 3,000# hit on the dolly/cart, causing the breakage.

    Storage cart with casters for implements

    I bought these, I am going to weld a tube on each side of my snowblower so when it is in the 3pt hitch, I can put them on and then set it down and wheel the implement where I want it. After I hitch it up, I can take them off the implement. No cart needed.

    Nice! Is there a way you can mount the wheels so they can be used as casters for snow blowing when the ground isn't frozen? Might be a good way to get double duty out of them.

    I have a few nice pallets that I bolted 350# capacity casters onto. The have held everything I have put on them so far.

    The casters are mounted inside the pallet to keep it as low to the ground as possible. Simply lower the implement onto the pallet, disconnect the tractor, and roll the pallet under the workbench. Several small attachments can fit on one pallet to further save on space.

    I use pallets for most of my attachments. It is easier to get them out when I need them and does take up less space. Yours is quite interesting, how are you keeping those items suspended like that?

    That is why they don't break - it is an anti-gravity storage system.

    I was considering building a dolly for my 6' bush hog----This looks better. I could weld 2 tubes for the wheels on the front of the bush hog and use them in conjunction with my dual tailwheels and move it around my shop much easier. Would make hookup much easier as well.

    Have you had any issues with the casters pushing in/denting the flooring?
