Chicken Tractor Wheeled Lift Kit
Left pic wood frame chicken tractor with 2 wheels on back & 2 wheels attached to long pulling bar on front. Rt pic of wheels & attachments to make chicken tractor moveable.

Chicken tractors allow poultry to be protected and contained while grazing, but they must be moved at least daily. It can be difficult to pull chicken tractors across a pasture, and birds can be injured if they get caught under the frame. Workers with impairments can push their chicken tractor pens to fresh pasture with this Chicken Tractor Wheeled Lift Kit. The kit comes with four wheels, two rear lift-lever assemblies, two front corner gussets, a front lever bracket, and a front lift-axle assembly. Foot power is used to lift/lower the wheels at the back corners. The two-wheeled front handle dolly allows one to lift and steer while moving. The front pedal raises up and latches the unit; and the rear pedal unlatches and lowers it back to the ground.
