New 1400 pound capacity wheels for a man's Utility Wagon

Bought from Surplus Center online store when blew a tire on this wagon carrying 500 pounds of yellow pine bleacher seat wood.  They fit perfectly on the half inch axle.  The cross section of the wheel was within the axle stick out length so and the old push on fastening washers were reused after being carefully removed.  The description say's these wheels are virtually indestructible.  This was my boyhood wagon, a few years ago I reinforced the box and gave it a new coat of red rustoleum paint.  Back in the 80's I repainted the handle and metal work.  This wagon is still holding up well after 35 years.  Should I put a motor on it and ride it around town, steering by the pull handle?  Men do stranger things than this in this day and age don't they?

It is good to maintain things of nostalgia.

About Me

My photo
Welcome to my Blogs. My name is Thomas Murphy and I love the forest and wildlife areas of Wisconsin and would like to share my thoughts and the pictures I have taken of the natural areas of Wisconsin. Come share in my collection of what I feel to some of the finest scenes and images of the forests, lakes, rivers and marshes that Wisconsin has to offer. I like to go to pristine and secluded areas where nature resides quietly and I feel the resulting “lost” images are profoundly unique. I am usually “in the moment” when I take these pictures. When I say in the moment I mean a sense of excitement often precedes what my eye captures through the camera. I never stage these shots but seem to be in the right place and time when I shoot them. And when I transfer them from my camera and view them on my computer screen I realize a sense of surrealism that resonates with me yet again to the time they were taken and exemplify the beauty of nature. Please peruse my sites and experience the beauty of being there as I did.
