I know a lot of you live on, work on, or have knowledge of cattle farms. I'm looking to build my own portable alley. Have most of the details worked out, but I havent been able to decide on the easiest way for me to get the wheels under it and ready to roll. I've seen examples with hand winches, electric winches, hydraulics, lifting with a bale bed or tractor and rolling a 1 ton axle under and pinning in place, and a setup with telescoping square tubing that slid down when the alley was lifted. Then a pin put through the tubing to keep it from dropping. I thought the square tubing was pretty slick, and easy to duplicate, but you need a truck with haybed or tractor on both ends of the trip.

Any ideas, opinions, and pictures would help a lot.

Thanks gentlemen.

Look at the dollies the towtrucks use. Operator uses a lever to rotate wheels under dolly and lock in place. Copy the calming action.

and it's a "cattle ranch" farming grows stuff outta the ground.


the consolidation of the states into one vast republic, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of that ruin which has overwhelmed all those that have preceded. Robert E Lee

Yep, That's What I'm building, now to get the wheels to fold down for transport and up and out of the way.

To cold for working much today Richard, I've told a few guys this week I would swing by and look at theirs. I'll try to snap a couple pictures.
