6' x 4' Wooden Sider Trailer: Drawbar Components


Cut the drawbar components as per the plan below. Drill the cable routing hole and shackle hole as shown. This can be done later but if you have access to a drill press, now is the ideal time to prep the drawbar section.


Note - The left hand drawbar section is shown, holes are not necesary in the right hand section unless an additional safety chain is required.

For Australian Trailer Builders - The shackle hole and shackle plate are not required as your safety chain regulations require the chain to be permanently fixed (welded) to the drawbar. See here for more details.Drawbar-Components.png
