    I was on the Horizonstructures website and saw that they had wheel kits for some of their larger coops such as the 4x8 one and the 8x8 one. Does anyone know where they get these at? I wouldn't mind getting one for my 4x8 coop.

    I think they can sell the wheels seperately, call them to find out. I've found this website and turns out they have a location near us but they only sell wheels and not the hardware and I'm clueless as to how to put them on. But they do have huge caster wheels for 4x8 coops.

    Hope this helps and keep us posted on what you do, good luck [​IMG]

    That's excatly what I got the other day. But they do have bigger wheels for bigger projects and I don't know quiet how to and what to get.
    once you deassembled it, did you use the same parts putting it back together to make the wheel on the side ?

    I did contact them and they want $345 for the entire wagon assembly that they use on their 4x8 coop. I didn't know if they made these themselves or they could be sourced cheaper from the manufacturer. I guess I could find a way to make the big caster wheels work. Thanks.

    I saw a coop wheel kit on petco's site- but they're $80.
