Millside Wagon Kit - 800-Lb. Capacity, Model# 01728
Great Item to make my Hammermill Chipper towable!
I purchased an old Hammermill Chipper a few months ago and from the time I purchased it, I wanted to make it towable with my garden tractor. For months I searched different websites to find and purchase various parts until I found this wagon kit at Northern. I figured that if it didn't fit or work out the way I wanted it to, it would make a great beach wagon. Well - it worked out great! I had to modify/re-weld the chipper base / foot (see before and after pictures) to accept the front axle and I still want to find a different handle for attaching it cleanly to my tractor, but I can't wait to try it out! The chipper MFG wanted almost $400 for their kit and I could only buy the parts through a 3rd party distributor. NO thank you! This Wagon Kit did the trick and more. I still might buy another kit to build that beach wagon!

Excellent Wagon Kit!
The wagon kit is a great way to create the foundation for a shop cart. I added a 1-1/8" x 22" x 40" plywood deck , four (4) recessed tie downs and a mahogany rim to the kit to create a shop cart for hauling wood and equipment from my truck into the shop. I then added a 2" x 4" triangular stand on top to hold 4' x 12' sheets of drywall that I was using to finish my workshop. I remove the shop cart's steering handle at the bottom of my 30' long ramp and attach my chain hoist to the handle mount. The cart tracks perfectly up the 16% grade to my shop door.
The kit has all the right parts and is made very well. The heaviest load I have carried on the cart is about 600 lbs. The cart handled the load with no trouble at all. I have a 950 lb surface planer that I will be moving into my shop with the new cart in a couple of weeks. The cart should handle it easily.
Great Kit! I have no complaints about the kit at all! I highly recommend the kit for making your own custom shop cart.

Sturdy product and easy assembly
Works well for our organization. We bought 2 of these and made the bodies ourselves for use in moving computer equipment around. The balloon tires work really well indoors and outdoors over uneven surfaces.

First Birthday Present
I bought this kit to build my grandson a wagon for his first birthday. Was very impressed with quality of the kit. With a little tweaking on the braces it went together fairly easy. I replaced the plastic wheel nuts with locking metal nuts just to be safe.My grandson loves the wagon.

Needed a good ungercarriage for a "Kids" wagon I wanted to build from scratch. I took actual dimensions from an old "Red Flyer" wagon and built the entire wagon from redwood pieces. This kit allows the wagon to steer like a car. Highly recommended for ANY wagon project !!!

I used this product to build a wagon that could haul everything needed for a day at the beach.
The wheel kit was easy to attach using a few carriage bolts. The steering is smooth and the pneumatic tires easily go over rocks and sand.

I have used this wagon kit twice in the last month to make 2 wagons. The product is excellent.

I bought this wagon kit for my grandson and built it over a couple of weeks to give to him for Christmas. The kit is complete enough to allow many different design options. The component parts in the kit are good quality for a kids wagon and I know he will get many years out of it. The steering mechanism is much better than most wagons available in the stores, it is really heavy duty and does not bind when turning.

We had difficulty getting an pet cage in and out of the house daily. This kit helped me make an custom size wagon that would not catch furniture or the doorway like an regular yard wagon. The tires also helped softened the jolts when pulling over an gravel drive.

Purchased the wagon under assembly to rebuild an existing wagon.. Upon receipt of the kit, I was very pleased with the quality of the parts and value. The parts are heavy duty, simple to assemble and strong enough to handle any household loads...
I highly recommend this product to anyone interested in making or rebuilding a pull wagon and saving money....
