CrazyWheel, TailWheel, 5thWheel, Caster
I recently acquired an old bobcat 720. It was once owned by Steve Parks (its stenciled on the side). I got it from another beekeeper. Its got a clark mast on it. Nice little machine and for the price could not be beat.
It looks like at one point it had a crazy wheel installed. There are rear hydraulics, activated by a lever on the left hand side. There are also some holes in the rear cover that look like they would have mounted a crazy wheel.
I have some guys locally who got pretty excited when I showed them a video of a tail wheel in action and said they could build one. Does anyone know where I can find specs/plans. I know there is some magic angle for the wheel to sit at so it pivots free and smooth. I would appreciate any advice to help eliminate hours upon hours of trial and error.
