    What weight do you reckon one can move about with a 6hp engine? I know a lot will depend on the leaf springs in the trailer.

    If it can lug around a 200lt diesel drum or 150kg of wood, it would work well on the farm.

    I am seriously interested in building this.

    Maybe a bigger fuel tank and control arms with suspension at the front.

    I have seen plans before it being built with a Beetle gearbox. Solve many problems.

    This was the basic tractor style in Southeast Asia for many years...

    Earlier versions were handlebar steering, but later ones have a steering wheel as shown, newer models have rear wheel drive via a prop shaft and I have seen them loaded to the same standard as Transkei bakkies.

    What it will carry is down to how you build it and treat it.

    Chinese usually use them on their building sites here also.

    Quit cheap to buy is China. Biggest cost is to get it here unless you fill a container.

    Daai clutch op daai engine is baie light duty. Ek het sulke motorfietse met quad bike tyres gehad met 200cc engines. Identies selfde clutches. As drywer meer as 95kg weeg, kakk hy. So met daai 4 wiel, gaan hy nie hou nie.

    Sy nek gaan baie gou afbreek. Hy moet dit sterker maak.

    Petrol tenk is groot genoeg. Goed vir 5 uur aaneen se ry.

    Ek sal ook vir nek n rotasie swiwel in sit. Enige skuinstes gaan frame breek omdat hy nie kan roteer nie.


    As jy die moeite wil doen, sit liewers n motorfiets of poegie engine in.

    As jy die kleintjie koop, sal hy sukkel, maar die egte Suid-oos Asia goed is taai.

    Willem,

    I followed this guy on YouTube for a while while he was building something similar.
    he used a hydraulic pump for assistance.

    Have a look, maybe it will help with more ideas.

    Now I know why my Kipor powered generator is so ###. This is how it was built.
