Hey "Dave H " Yes you are right it is small as hay wagons go, 12 feet long by 6.8 wide. I set it up for three rows high. So I should be able to get 50 bales on this wagon. I need short wagons as I am going to pull this behind the baler and tail the baler with it. My hay fields are small and irregular shaped so a larger-longer wagon won't work behind the baler. I am still looking out for a couple of larger wagons to store hay on short term.

It was a lot of work , but fun to give something from 60 some years ago a new lease on life for a while.

Thanks for the encouragement.

A 18' bed will trail and work as good in small fields as the 12' bed. And the wheelbase it shows is what is normal for a 14' bed with the normal rear axle overhang. Take a piece of flooring and fasten it to the ends of your cross pieces for a rub rail and also to keep the outer edge of your outside floor boards from breaking off, then take anouther piece and put on top of the floor at the edge to keep your bales from sliding off sideways as you are loading. We had 16'ers ranging from 6.5' wide to 7' and one 18' bed that was too much for one to walk to the back to load and keep up with the baler. If I was farming anymore I would have 14' beds for easy storage and loading by hand it would be your width but for a kicker 7'. I would not put 4' between cross pieces tho, only 16" but would use 2 x 4" for that with standard 1" lumber for the floor. Only was I would use 2" lumber for floor is if I had to lay it crosswize to get a lower loading height.
