The hitch: too long, introduces vibrations...

The axles: the handcart wheels wobble a lot

The distance between front and rear (too short)...

Not very usable: constant tuning, breakdowns, lots of wear and tear...

This project looks awesome but there isn't enough documentation of you actually making it to be a full Instructable. There are two things which you could do. 1) If you happen to have images of you making your project you can create some more steps, add those additional photos into your Instructable and then republish your Instructable. 2) If you don't have any more pictures of you working on your project, that's ok too. That just means that your project is better suited to be submitted as a slideshow. Your images are already in your library, and you can use the same text that you have already written for your Instructable so it should only take a few minutes to create your slideshow and show the world what you made! Thanks for your submission and let me know if you have any questions along the way.
A trick i learned to prevent nuts from vibrating off is puting a bunch of hot glue on and around the nut
I use Silicon RTV.
Useing lock nuts is better, either plastic lock or a full metal lock nut is more reliable.
i know that was way back when i didn't know what lock nuts were.
Could you make the spar connecting the front and rear axels removeable and adjustable and an attachment for the front axel for carrying your transformer and generator. I would like to see a full instructable on this project.

This is a fantastic design and very practical for the serious hauler. Basically it's like two movable two-wheel dollies that you can connect at whatever length you want. You can also easily move very large (long and wide) pieces of furniture with this by extending the bed using 2x4s and putting a couple temporary crossbars on the bed to help with sideways support. thanks!
