More TC1840H garden cart repair

Lucy washerThe TC1840H garden cart has taken some heavy use this firewood season, and an important welded spot near the front worked its way loose. Since the steering bracket is just below the frame I decided to secure the troubled spot through both pieces to add some additional strength.

It was easy to drill the four holes, although it might be neater to space them apart just a wee bit more to avoid the washer crowding seen here in the picture.

Lucy was eager to be the first to test out the new repair, and then she promptly asked for her evening walk.

TC1840H cart fixes...

Were this cart has been repaired I have not had any problems, with 3 of them. But I have had to retire 2 of the 3 because of the wheels/rims breaking at the hub weld. and my thiird cart is now down to the last of the spaer wheel from the other two parts cart.

I've even welded the hubs back! I like the size of this cart but don't loke the fsct that I've boke 10 of the 12 hubs/rims for them...
