DIY version of wagon wheel cart on 36 patio

I made a version of the wagon wheel cart for my 36 patio using a trailer dolly and a homemade trailer tongue mounted to the pit.
The trailer dolly was purchased and I used a 1 7/8" hitch and AVT 2" receiver. The tongue is 2" square tubing welded to give an offset matching up to the dolly ball height. The tongue is removable with a hitch pin when not in use.  It raises the iron casters on the Lang about 2" off the ground. This makes it more mobile and easier to push/pull around the yard since it has larger wheels.

Re: DIY version of wagon wheel cart on 36 patio

Cajun: Can you post them here? I'm sure there on facebook but i can't find them. I tried to build my version because to move my rig I have to go over gravel. It didn't work and I gave up and now have to use pieces of plywood.

I had trouble attaching a photo in this forum. The only thing I could do was copy a link. The link takes you to the facebook page that has my posting. You should be able to click on it. If not search facebook for "Lang Smoker Owners" group and scroll to my post by don Jeansonne. If you still can't see then send me your email and I will email them to you.

Re: diy cart for 36 patio

Don: Thank you. I clicked on your link and found the pictures. Nice mod and it's exactly what I was looking for. Originally, I tried to bolt a swivel wheel I bought at Tractor Supply but it didn't work because the steel wheels got in the way.  Did you remove the front shelf on your rig or did it come that way?

wheel cart dolly

I ordered my 36 with a fold down shelf. I had to pass through a 36" opening so the shelf had to fold down. When Lang does that you don't have the wrap around shelf (front and side). He then puts the rod type handle on front. I like the front shelf but not option for me.

I also load my 36 in a cargo trailer so had the stack removable not to hit the door height.

Hope the details are clear enough. If not let me know.
Also I added a cross brace 1x1 tubing under the bottom shelf to support the receiver bracket as it wanted to counter rotate.

Lang dolly

Just for info
I purchased the dolly from Walmart.com about $42.
The other items came from Harbor Freight at about $20-25.
Misc item about $10

total is much less than $100

Re: Lang dolly

You've solved my problem!!! During inclement weather I hove to move my rig about 75' over gravel to get it under cover. I can see how the receiver would counter rotate. I no longer have access to a welder so I'll have to figure another way to attach the cross member - maybe I could bolt a length of wood or a steel plate. Had I know Lang could add front wheels I'd have ordered it but your mod is cheaper

To get my rig into my back yard I had 1/2" gate clearance on each side -- I barely made it.

During our build we put a piece of angle iron under the ATV receiver  that spanned across the bottom tray front to back. That proved that we needed something to stabilize it. That is when we put the 1x1 tubing across. You can just use an angle iron that bolts to the front and back tubing on the bottom shelf or anything relatively stiff.

Glad it is something you can use in your situation.

that's a great modification.  probably a lot better that the handle from Lang.  I found the connection to be pretty thin and it eventually broke.  I had to get someone to re-weld it for me.

Originally, I tried to attach a swivel wheel in the middle of the cast iron wheels but it didn't work. After seeing BayouRouge I realized my mistake so back to Harbor Freight for a $15.00 12" swivel wheel (actually, a 10' would have done the job but I didn't feel like driving back and the price difference was only a few bucks). I mounted the wheel to a a 2X6 and extended it out to just clear the cast iron wheels. I bolted the 2X6 on the rear end to the bottom grate and used a large "C" clamp (for easy removal) to secure the front portion. I painted it black. Cheap mod and no more problems moving the rig over gravel. If I was going to move hte rig fequently, I'd use BayouRouge's set up.
