About The 'Clydesdale' Shepherd Hut Chassis:

Inspired by traditional ‘working’ Shepherd Huts, the Clydesdale is possibly the strongest steerable chassis available. With its unique turning ring mechanism, combined with beautifully crafted, heavy duty metal work, the Clydesdale really is a work of art.

The design of the 900mm wide turntable ensures all steering stresses and loads are transferred through metal work, not timber joints meaning the chassis is very, very strong and stable.

Taking over twelve months to design and build the initial chassis, customers will note from the pictures below that the Clydesdale incorporates traditional features and has the option of being supplied as a complete unit, fully assembled, painted/treated and finished, or in part form. When supplied in complete form all timber is planed, sanded and treated for an exceptional finish (see pictures). We only use stainless steel when metal fixings are in contact with oak as oak contains acids that corrode untreated iron or steel.

Other key features include:

  • Chassis made from selected redwood with oak axles. Steel box section and stub axles are let into the underside for maximum strength.
  • Double ‘V’ Strainer Bar which attaches directly to a bush at the bottom of the centre pin and to two positions on a strenghthening crossmember just forward of the back axle.
  • 2no 24” and 2no 32” diameter cast iron wheels.
  • Fully detachable front draw bar designed with curved strengthener and forged towing ring with hand wound reinforcing clip.
