  • Loading Wheels....

    Does anyone know of any universal loading wheels that can be attached to the typical drum machine type handle ?

    seems like most machines have a single wheel between the handles.

    post a photo and i'm sure we can make a suggestion.

        Yes, I would like one between the handles. It's a Spartan 100. I know it only weighs in around 80lbs but it's just easier for me to load and move around with the extra wheel.

          I would think one could make one easy out or some old lawn mower wheels or go to the hardware store and buy a new wheel and make a support, most likely a shaft or pipe the size of the bore of the wheel, if you want removable weld in some nuts in the pipe or drill and tap solid shaft, and that way the shaft can be bolted in the handle other wise weld or braze it in, where you want it, ( a couple of holes and two washers and a few cotter pins will keep the wheel centered, on the shaft).

          here is the K750 manual and you can see how they did it,

            I say work smarter not harder 80 pounds is 80 pounds. Some of the older drum machines even the big ones didn't have the wheel. I have seen a lot of these old machines have the Handel cut and a lawn mower wheel put in with a shaft placed inside the Handel. Get a smooth cut with a sawzel or even hacksaw and file and it will look like it was made that way at the factory maybe a pipe with a hole drilled through each side of the pip and cut Handel to hold it in place with a washer on each side to help with the ware and you got a good loading wheel.
