    Identify this trailer. Is it old John Deere?

    Picked up this trailer for use around the property, mainly maple sap collection. Cleaned it all up and there is some considerable amounts of John Deere Green on it. In one corner there is a small piece of wood on a bolt so the deck was once wood. Anyone recognize this? Any idea what it may have been? Is this some old JD equipment? Thank you

    AFAIK, Deere never made any trailers other than utility carts. Hard to say that it's Deere green paint. Could just as easily be Oliver green or any other rattle can green.

    Does it have any tags/engravings anywhere on it at all?

    No engravings, stampings or marks of any kind on it that I have found thus far but I have to admit, I haven't crawled under it to see if there is something hiding. Will take a closer look tonight.

    Not even sure if it was a trailer. I should have labeled it as 'Identify this frame'.

    The wheels/tires I took off were E78-14 tires. So at least 40 - 50 years old and I'm assuming older.

    Other than the wheels, this is the way it was at the auction.
    Oliver green is a good possibility. That hadn't crossed my mind. Doubt it is spray can. The paint that remains was not coming off with the pressure sprayer.

    They did have, perhaps not make but sold Deere branded snowmobile trailers. I think.

    The Deere snowmobile trailers that I remember were not near as rugged as the one in the picture. I think they were made by Snowco.

    John Deere did make a farm trailer in the 1930's or 40's, but it was bigger than that one.

    You are right, Lowell. I have seen pictures of a dual wheel trailer that I believe was made for dealers to haul one tractor on behind a dual wheel truck. I don't remember where I saw the pictures; maybe Green Magazine.

    I went back an looked and there were several dual/triple axle "Industrial Trailers" made. Models 1100, 1120, 1125, 1135, 1145, etc.. Mostly dual axle with a few available as triple axle units. Mostly built in the 1950s/60s.

    The only single axle units I could find were the snowmobile trailers mentioned (Models JD73, JD74, JD75, JD648 and JD972 all made in the 1970s) and the model 10, 15, 16, 20, 25, 50 Utility Trailers (dates made unknown).

    If your's is a Deere, it would have to be one of those latter model numbers but the pics I saw of them all have different tongue setups on them from what you've got.

    Not sure what you really have here but it looks like it might be the frame from a old manure spreader. However I don't remember them having that type of pull connection on the tongue.

    Just guessing.
