    Bogie drive on trailers

    Evening all.
    What would you call the setup where on a tandem axle trailer with pivoting bogies there is a 3rd wheel attached between the 2 rubber tyres and is there to help transfer drive from front wheel to drive the back one in a friction type scenario?
    TTFN.

    Unusual? Puzzling? Or

    Ha! I was correct. You could well call it "unusual"

    Took a look at the picture - I would call that a "fancy man's toy" that will cost plenty to keep operating.

    On this side of the pond, most people who are going into the woods with a 4-wheeler after wood either yard it (like you would with a horse) or have a walking beam trailer (wagon style) designed to haul 4-6 12-foot hardwoods with a 12" butt.

    Farmers around here don't need a fancy hydraulic lift to handle fence posts

    The cage wheel is not an idler transferring drive from the front wheel to the rear one. It's driving both wheels by hydraulic power.

    Hmm.. considering that ATVs are now the number one killer (or very close to it) of farmers in Australia, I would be more than a tad concerned about using one for that work.

    Ahhhhhhhh. I hadn't read the blurb on that setup and assumed it was a type of friction drive to assist over rough terrain. Just goes to show that I should practice what I preach to my kids...... that you should never assume anything as there's always a reason why!
    Do all these mid mounted setups deliver drive?
    School days back again! Lol.
