I posted that pile of shit about 9 months ago in this thread. It's been on CL here in Texas forever. Guy needs to come to terms with the fact that its worthless and just cut it up.

yeah, the tire spins a plate attached to a spindle. Have to rotate the tire every winter. I liked ours because the tire will spin on the plate if you hit a stump or a large rock etc...
