I have a rather large old gen-set, which I require to make a tolley up for. I've got two possible routes to go down, but am not sure which is best.
Route 1: A single axle with long handles so that I can lift and turn it. Problem: It took two men to lift the engine and frame, without the alternator, and I cannot lift the alternator on my own! I suppose if the axle was just to the rear of the pivot point I could lift and turn. How steady would this set up be when the engine is running?
Route 2: A four wheeled trolley with a turning front axle. I think this might be best, but how do I make the turntable for to front axle? Is it as easy as a pin on the trolley, and a hole on the axle?
Can I have some suggestions please (the genset is in a frame which measures about 5'x3' by 3' tall. Engine at one end (across frame) driving alternator next to it by belt.).
