Latest video: itload.info/losk/o4HduKWqyNrKi9Y/video
Starting a new BIG build - 4x4 PTO driven timber trailer with a hydraulic crane/boom and grapple. It's for the homemade UTV I built last year. This video is just an introduction to the build series since sourcing parts is a bit delayed due to current extraordinary situation. But we will get there!
Trailer specs:
* 28x11-14" tires & 14" rims
* 1450mm/57" wide, length and height - unknown
* tandem axles with homemade chain housing
* BMW E39 530D differential with 2.81 gearing (identical to the UTV diffs)
* hydraulic crane with a boom & grapple for easier log loading & handling
* independent hydraulic power pack
* radio controlled hydraulic winch on the boom
* load capacity - unknown
Stay tuned for the next episode & thanks for watching!

      @calholli You're right here. Fewer parts, less friction, less complications. And I prefer simple, with direct traction. But when you start working and you have an idea, that you want to have ground clerance, you get complicated in ideas and forget that it can be done easily 😀.

      @Bogdan (Hands On Tools) Fair enough.. But he could just use another diff that's the same on his buggy; so that the gear ratios match. Then if your buggy broke, you could steal the diff from your trailer and get it going again in the meantime. (the diffs aren't likely to break anyway though). I get it, those sprockets give you a little more ground clearance in the center and also ratio adjustability (as you said)-- but personally I'd much rather go direct to the diff- It's much stronger and a lot more simple, less parts/ less things to break. It should work either way though.

      @calholli With those sprockets he can change the ratio in case the differential group does not have the same ratio as his group. the pinion connected to the group is not the same size as the one on the wheels. The wheels will work in tandem. I also have a movie in which I made a reducer to match the ratio of the gearbox to that of the traction trailer group.

      You can simplify this a lot, just by making your diff run directly to one set of wheels, and then just have the chain going straight back to the other set of wheels. Your chain setup would be better, not having that triangle shape. Also, you would only need 4 sprockets, rather than 6.. Less bearings also. I understand that you're gaining a little ground clearance-- but not really-- because your chain boxes are still low anyway. I'd just run the diff straight to the wheels/ that is how your buggy is set up, and it does fine. Plus, if your chains break-- you still have one set of wheels running on the trailer; because they are directly connected to the diff/ which is not gonna break or skip teeth/ ect..

    Brilliant. I think I would have used two drive sprockets and two chains in the walking beam though. Stronger and less chance of the chain slipping on the drive sprocket.

    I'm sure you're already 5 steps ahead of us but you may want to rethink your drive chain setup. The single drive sprocket on each side will have very little engagement with the chain as drawn and is likely to skip.
    Easy fix would be to double up the drive sprockets or add idler sprockets in between the drive and driven sprockets to pull the chain down around the drive sprocket for more tooth to chain engagement.

      or just put one sproket more on the axle in and split the chain so one is for front wheel and the other goest to rear,that way if one chain breake you always got drive on the other and tensioners on the bottom on the chains pushing it up is easy to make..

      @Ryan Ducharme I know someone who had one of them argo 6 wheeler with the tracks, if i recall they make a couple types one that is plastic for mud and snow and another one. They do have their flaws to which they tend to slip if you do not have tire pressure right. A flat tire will ruin a day of fun. They have some tracking issues and if I recall my friend said that at some point the track punctured the tire or damaged it somehow. Now I can not recall if this was the tires that are a unit in its self. Meaning that the tire and rim was one unit and you had to buy the whole thing. I used to own a 3 wheeler suzikie I think it was that had tires like this. They had their own problems. The argo tires I think at some time were that way and I know that if the tires are bald or close to it they might be the cause of slipping. I would also think that any slipping in the gears and chains, slipping as in back lash could also cause some issues as well. There is one way to do tracks on stuff is to search your local area for a set of 4 wheeler tracks where one is damaged. Sometimes they will sell cheap because 3 tracks is no good for a 4 wheeler. You then can use 2 tracks for a trailer or even add skies to your rig. I have always wanted to take a small 4 cylinder front wheel automatic engine and trans and add a set of those tracks on it, with skies for steering. My other option was building out some bigger tracks and make a simple snow cat machine doing this method with a set of brakes for each side for steering. Would be simple and easy to do. Pretty much remove everything and place it in to a homemade rig kinda like a van sort of. I like the idea of a van rather than a flat bed as it would be mainly for driving around when there is enough snow on the ground.

      @William Glaser yes I’ve seen those old trucks that had chain driven back axles, I think Ford had one setup like that for their bigger trucks in the years you mentioned. I had thought about using those track kits you can get for Argo 6 and 8 wheelers, I don’t know how much trouble they have with keeping the tracks on the tires, you don’t see a lot of them, so maybe they either have problems or they’re kinda of expensive, but a person won’t be racing with them so they may work out okay. I’d like to talk to someone who has used them for awhile and see how good they are. Thank you for the information, very much appreciated.

    Great 3D plan for the gearing. Having worked with sprocket and chain set-ups, you need more contact of the chain and the sprocket on the drive gear. If it gets a little loose it will skip over the teeth of the sprocket. Maybe a set of tension idlers to give more surface for the chain to grab. Love your engineering.

    Recommend two idler sprockets on each side to hold the chain downward onto the top of each center drive sprocket to prevent slippage on their teeth. Will also allow chain tensioning.

    You might want to be aware of the problems Land Rover had with the 101 Forward Control when hitched up with a powered trailer. They found that in some circumstances if the 101 lost traction the trailer could provide enough push to tip the 101 over.

    This reminds me of the chain drive setup on a skid steer. Except those have 2 sprockets on the drive shaft to allow separate chains for the front and back wheels. Doing it that way would give a lot more chain engagement on the drive sprockets.

    Just an idea:
    Make the suspension completely free-floating in the forward-backward direction - so it can move up/down and forward/backward and is only supported by two springs with dampers 45° forward/backward and a support that doesn't allow any steering movement (right/left). The drive could be done by a chain with a strong tensioner. This way the suspension can physically move backward on impacts before crawling above the impacted object. This will mitigate that the trailer steers to one side and shifting the back of your vehicle to one side, too.
    This is not conventional, as it's not suitable for any high speed, but at such low speeds you're planning to use it, it shouldn't matter.

    I had a dream about one of these and also have a idea that I would love to have you build. Its remote steering for axles on trailers that you control so that the trailer you tow won't cheat on the turn, it will follow the tracks of the rig pulling it so you don't have to turn so wide to get around corners .... like semi's will presently have to cross into the next lane to go around and the trailer not "cheat" and go over the curb behind it. I know how to make it perfectly

    A new video from my favourite YouTuber! Great!
    And on a topic I can relate to. Both forestry and trailers for working in the forest. I have one comment here. Please do take great care when operating this trailer. Both the Land Rover Forward Control 101 and the Volvo Felt military trucks had PTO driven trailers. This led to some very interesting accidents where the truck started loosing traction with the trailer was powered up. The trailer alarmingly often pushed the truck over on the side, or off the intended track. Something to have in mind :-)
    Cool video! Looking forward to see the hydraulic crane on it. I purchased one a year ago and boy is that something that really helps both in the forest en elsewhere.

      @Reman1975 Right.. You could also use a Torsen diff.. or like I said, you could just use a clutch and work it manually as you drive. But the whole point in 'needing' a driven trailer is because you have low traction; so even though the trailer is trying to push around corners like you said-- you're likely in mud or on snow, and the wheels will slip enough for this not to be an issue. I get that it will have a heavy load of log-- which will give it more traction; but like I said before, as long as he has a heavy tongue weight, it will put more of the load on the buggy, which would then match the traction of the trailer better.. Really the BEST answer for this problem is to have a ram powered pivot at the ball hitch. lol.. So then it would move like those dual tracked Russian arctic tractors. Or similar to a heavy front loader that can pivot in the center. But again, all he really needs is a practical way to disengage the trailer on the fly, such as a clutch (or viscous diff, like you said)-- or at the very least-- a quick disconnect drive shaft that he can pull off without tools, if it becomes a problem.

      @calholli The problem with constant drive to the wheels on one piece trailers (Rather than one with steering front wheels) is that they tend to not follow in the tow vehicles tracks. They follow a line closer to the apex of a corner, so in tight manoeuvres the trailers wheels are traveling a shorter route, than that of the tow vehicle. To clarify what I'm saying, imagen an extreme example where the tow vehicle was dragging an unpowered trailer around in a circle, with the vehicle at 90' to the trailer. As it moved, the trailer will be rotating about the centre of it's axle, with one wheel going forwards and the other rolling backwards. The net rotation of the two wheels is zero. Now, if you've got driven trailer wheels in this scenario, they're going to be pushing the trailer forwards at the same speed as the vehicles wheels are turning. The end result of this is that the trailer will be trying to push the vehicle's back end sideways and jack knife it. In wider corners the effects will be less pronounced, but still there. The trailer will try to push the cornering vehicle, that results in the vehicles rear tyres getting pushed sideways, this makes them more likely to slip, which allows the trailer to "Catch up" even more and push the rear tyres sideways further, resulting in a jack knife. One option would possibly be to add a viscous coupling to the trailer drive, but unfortunately this would add expense, complexity and mean the trailer wheels wouldn't get much drive until the vehicles wheels were actually spinning.

      @Donn DIY It should be fine on regular terrain. But if you're going over rocks and logs and driving up an incline, ect.. It's just a matter of traction and weight. If your trailer has enough tongue weight, it will put more of that weight onto your buggy-- and should be more balanced. Idk, You're not really doing super heavy duty loads-- I'm sure it's fine.. But again, the simplest answer is to have a clutch at your PTO shaft in the back/ that way you can disengage the trailer on the fly and kick it back in as needed -- or at least a simple shift lever that will disengage your PTO. I guess you could always pull your rear driveshaft-- but it would be much better to just push a clutch on your trailer temporarily, IMO

    Excellent - something to look forward to over the coming weeks. Was trying to figure out how you drive two wheels from One sprocket but assume it’ll just be one long chain that wraps round all 3 sprockets. Also, I have no idea how you make sure the wheels on the trailer will turn at the same rate as the atv - guess the bmw diff had the same ratios as the one in the atv?

    Great, new build. I have a thougt about the boogie Axel design. Lets say that you lose tractio on the UTV, and the trailer with boogies and wheels have traction and tries to push. The risk is that the rear boogie wheel will push and the boogie will climb and lift the trailer and front boogie wheel. On heavier boogie axeled maskins the boogie is connected to the chassie by a planetary gear set to prevent this.
    A suggestion is to move the boogie tipping point forward closer to the front wheel so that you get a longer torqarm regarding the rear wheel and you will need more wheel torque to lift the front wheel/trailer.
    Keep up the god work @donndiy

    Hi Don. The best Way to make This is with 2 chains in each Boogie axel to get rit of the problem with chain slipping and the other thing you can get out of it is more clearens between the wheels so you dont get stuck on a stomp or stone..
    If I where you.. I would make the Boogie section look like a booomerang seen from the side and put 2 chain sproket on the center axel .. hope you understand 😊

    A good project for the future 👍🏼 but is the engine strong enough with the more weight?

    Donn just a suggestion for a future project that I'm sure you will use.... tire changing machine. If anyone can design one I am sure it is you. Thanks for the videos they are appreciated!

    I would have gone with the Skidsteer/Grader style of chain drive. Yes it is, lower ground clearance, but, tooth loading on the drive sprocket(s) is lower, shaft load is the same, and the chain stresses are spread out, not all on one length, but two/side. This system, will give awesome power in the woods, as you will then stretch the trailer, to haul more.😊
    Can't wait to see the rest of the build.
    Best wishes from Northern Manitoba.

    as configured in your CAD the chain is likely to slip because of the limited contact area and the angle, you be better off with 2 sprockets and a separate chain driving the forward and rear wheels. have you already worked out the gear ratio? thats a bit of math I wouldn't want to tackle.

    It might already been said, but the wheels should not be on equal distance from the centre axle. That will make the boogie climb over rocks and logs poorly. The front wheel should have a larger distance to the centre than the rear. Since you are doing it in CAD first now, it is easy to change the design 👍😊

    Probably a bit late to the show, but in earth moving trailers with a simular kind of carriage they offset the pivet piont of the carriage to the rear. This gives the front tire less preasure (Force*length of the arm) so it will be easier to pull in difficult conditions because the wheel will be les likely to "dive" into the Material you are driving over.

    I love the idea, however I believe there needs to be more support for the bogie wheel end. On graders and forestry equipment there is a large radial bearing to support the load weight and thrust. I also agree with other comments about using two separate chains to drive the wheels such as a skid steer or grader. Perhaps a much more simple system of using a drive tire centered between the two bogie tires like are used in a muck truck powered wheel barrow would accomplish the same ends and simplify the build.

    Can we take bets on what each side will weigh without wheels? 😁 I’m thinking easily 40kgs

    Snow chains for utv and tracks for trailer, and that will go up to a tree 😉
