I built this today to move my log arch and other trailers around. Just have to paint it. Works great.

 8) That's a nice, stout one!  I have a cheap HF unit that I had to re-weld the handle back on.  Pretty high ball hitch on there!  I've seen them were there is a smallish caster on the front so when you bring it over-center, it rests on that.  That will keep it almost vertical and you can let go of the handle if you need to.

If I end up building a new one, I would put a receiver tube on it - then I could swap out different lift/drops to accommodate different trailers.
