I used rotating trailer jacks with wheels.
Does it put too much stress on the single wheel while you're working to get the second wheel up? (I'm thinking you have four of these - one on each corner?) Must not, if you've been using this a while. I like it!
(A closer picture would be helpful for those of us seeking ideas - to show hardware store employees!)
Do those things have enough room to rotate down or do you have to lift it some before the wheels hit the ground?
Since I took this picture I have mounted another jack in the middle of each end to lift it up and enable the wheels to rotate down.
Nice, (and spendy). Cool thing is that if you have uneven ground you can level them out. As far as weight carrying capacity, they are rated to 750-1,000lbs for the smaller ones.
Another added plus is they swivel so you aren't stuck going just forwards and backwards.
Good idea but I think a "wheelbarrow" type is easier and more economical for one person (only need 1 tire)
Great idea. I would have mounted them up a little higher and spaced out so you could swing them down and then crank them up to lift the coop.
How does it move when you have it up on the wheels?
This is a great idea-I was just going to post a question about if there was such a thing as this-I didn't know what to call them. Where do you buy them?
Harbor freight, Tractor Supply or Northern tool sells them off the top of my head. As should any trailer and RV store.
