Wheel assembly for powermate portable generator
Believe it or not HFT (Harbor Freight Tools), which has local outlet stores in most big cities and is online as well (not sure where you are located), has a ton of various mountable tire/wheel assys in stock.
Some are swivel plate mounted - some are fixed plate type - and some
wheels are just stand alone for axle-thru type mounted shafts of
They even have a 13HP Genset wheel kit p/n 94192 for $24.99 online, and
possibly the same price in-store if they indeed do stock it in-store.
You just have to call a local HFT store and find out.
Prices can't be beat, and even though most everything there is made in China they do have some pretty good stuff there.
There is one other alternative if they don't have it in-store, and you really want to save a few bucks.
You yourself can make the same wheel kit set-up for under $15 if you
are handy with metal working, and have a metal supply house near you.
If your Genset frame already has the axle hole plates welded onto the
frame like I believe they all do today - then just buy the steel axle
rod in whatever diameter rod is needed, and whatever length you need to
clear the frame plus the added 2 wheels with 2 washers and 2 clearance
bushings, and then just drill 2 cotter pin centered holes (1 on each
end of the axle), and it's a done deal - all except for attaching any
old metal type handle assy from maybe some old discarded gardening
implement or possibly an older metal handled snow shovel for example.
Just cut it down to size, bend according to fit the frame and bolt it
on with 2 sturdy nut/bolt & lock washer assys. Done deal!!!
Just buy the 2 wheels anywhere that sells them cheaply, or else hunt some used ones down at a garage sale or thrift store maybe.
I made my own wheel kit setup on my own personal 5500W 10HP Generac
Genset, and used the HFT pneumatic 10" tires when they were on sale for
1/2 price at $3 each. Axle rod - cotter pins (2) - washers (6) - axle
spacer bushings (2) - custom hand made recycled handle & misc
nut/bolt hardware all cost me under $10.
Labor cost - PRICELESS!
