Wheel damage

Wheel close up with damage

It turns out that those three tip overs caused some wheel damage on the Bucket Hauler lawn trailer.

These wheels don't have bearings, but some sort of holder broke away.

The wheels probably have/had bushings pressed in which slid out of place or wore through. Your application of Harbor Freight stuff to full time, real world working applications is a strenuous test, to say the least.

They do sell 10 in. wheels with real bearings that might be better for your app. http://www.harborfreight.com/10-inch-pneumatic-tire-30900.html or 13 inch wheel and tire: even better if you have clearance http://www.harborfreight.com/13-5-32-inch-x-3-7-16-inch-flatfree-tire-67469.html
