Ahhhhh yes, perfect! Soo, correct me if I am wrong, but you have two, 4x4/4x6 running the entire length that are sitting on the wagon, and then 4x4's attached perpendicular to those? Then you ran decking the long way? What are the uprights in the back that are holding up the back board, 4 x 4's? Also, how did you attach them to the trailer/deck? Thanks for the picture, that was the one I was thinking of!! What is the length of that one? 16? Bryce

Yes it is 4x6 mains, 4x4 crosses, then 5/4 deck run the long way. I put 4x12 metal plates between the mains and the running gear to take the rubbing instead of the wood. Also put tin on cross pieces to shed water and delay rot. I did not gap the decking as I figure it will shrink up and make a gap later on. All southern yellow pine that is treated.The wagon is 14x7 overall which is how I wanted it, even though smaller it is handy. I had 96 bales on it saturday . I have larger wagons for other jobs. The back board is 2x4s with the 5/4 cross pieces. It is held on with U brackets to the mains. I used nails on the deck because I have found screws will snap off on uneven ground while the nails will flex some or just stick up and can be hammered back in. I used a lot of carriage bolts and angle irons to hold the crosses to the mains. I have about 600 total into it including lumber,paint,nails,bolts,angle iron,tire tubes, axle grease, and SMV sign.

Mine are set up that way - 4X6 stringers with 4X4 sitting perpendicular to the 4X6 and then instead of planking mine use 2X6s, 2X8s and 2X10 for the decking with 1/4 inch spacing. They are all treated wood with only the 4X6s bought new - the rest of the wood was salvaged from several decks I tore down.

The 5/4 X 6 treated decking doesn't handle the weight or the flexing a wagon goes through crossing the fields - after a couple years the screws all start to pull through leaving the boards flapping.
