    interesting design. if i might make a couple suggestions? one thing to consider would be to put wheels in the middle so the weight is balanced and then your kids would be able to push it... i have seen tractors where the wheels can be raised so the tractor can sit on the ground. since you already have your setup, another idea would be to put a 'tongue' on your tractor and then use a trailer ''mule'' to pull it... either idea would work. i have the same wheels you have and tried them on my tractor *4x8* but they couldnt hold the weight.... i like your locks... excellent idea.
