    Cart to pull behind wheelchair?

    Does anybody know of a good cart I could get to pull behind my power chair (for yard work)?

    Powerchair or manual?

    Tractor supply has a wagon with air tires and sideboards and also a dump feature. Would work good behind a powerchair. Maybe a manual with a light load in the wagon. I dream up contraptions for all kind of things just need to fab em up.

    There's a guy in my neighborhood who built one for his powerchair. He made it out of wheelchair axels and a 1"x4" plank box frame.

    It's about 3'x2' and he goes all over town with it.
    He's been in the paper a couple of times too. One time he had it so loaded down that the stuff sat higher than him and his chair.
    Next time I catch him I'll try to get a picture of him and the trailer.

    King,
    I bought an old Omega trac power chair.
    I'll look at tractor supply.
    I've got all this important stuff to do, since I just moved in.
    But, I only want to do the fun stuff, like adapt the mower and get a cart for the wheelchair!

    jc, Thanks.
    That makes me think I should design my own.
    I'd like to see a picture of his, if you get around to it.

    If you have a COSTCO Warehouse nearby, they have a nice "garden cart" that has a hitch pin that looks as if it will hook to a power chair fairly nicely. It has really nice wheels w/knobby tires, the siderails drop down, and it's got a pull handle that attaches where the hitch pin goes...sooo if you wanted to pull it along by the handle you could do it that way too....It also would attach nicely to a Cub Cadet Zero Turn Mower....Not that I've been eyeballing it myself or anything....
