Northern Tool Lawn wagon

rboone7760April 14, 2014

I have a Northern Tool lawn wagon # 143322, 4 wheels and 1400 lb capacity. The wagon has a hand pull handle however I would like to be able to pull with a lawn tractor.
Does anyone know how to modify the handle so that it can be pulled by hand or lawn tractor?

1. I suggest U-Bolting a trailerâÂÂs coupler to the handle to match your Lawn TractorâÂÂs Tow Ball. Two U-Bolts, one on handleâÂÂs pull and extension.
2. Better! Offset a plate below or above the existing tongue allowing optional use, U shaped (U-Bolted to connect with a Pin & Cotter)
3. Please show a Picture with the handle close to the tractorâÂÂs towing area.

Here is how the Duroworx 1200 is made and it works fine both ways.

slowpoke_gardener: That is a good example of what I had in mind of universal (without excessive work). There might be kits out there for various carts or easily fabricated (as seen).

Good Luck!

Gorilla Carts offers a conversion replacement handle for $20.00 to fit their wagons. I suppose it could be modified to fit a NT model. The good thing about it, is the handle can be turn 180 degrees allowing either one to pull in a straight line with the wagons frame.

I received my replacement handle today and it is an exact replacement, ony difference is color. The current one was red and the new one is black. The new handle appears to be stronger made.
