How To Put A Trailer Axle On A Barbecue Pit


Im wanting to put a small axle underneath my huge pit, just to move around the yard, any suggestions?


Expert Reply:

I do have several axles available however, they may need to be modified to work with your application as the narrowest axle we have in stock is the CE Smith Trailer Axle w/ Idler Hubs part # CE33201GA-HUB. This axle measures 57-1/2" from the face of each hub and 46-1/2" from spring center to spring center. The spring center of the axle is the recommended mounting location to place the support that will be responsible for carrying the load for a leaf spring suspension that is usually attached to the frame of a trailer.

If you are not planning to make this pit road worthy, then you could just bolt the axle directly to whatever frame structure you plan on using. You will need a set of wheels and tires to do this and for that I recommend using the Kenda 4.80/4.00-8 Bias Trailer Tire with 8" White Wheel part # AM30020.
