This prototype was completed the first part of 2011. With a weight of 220 lbs., to fit small ponies in the 42” to 48” category. Like all the other PJ’s, it is made entirely of aluminum except for the axles. All the hardware such as shaft tips, hubcaps, and whip holder are polished aluminum. All the fasteners are stainless steel.


Shafts are independent and have 6” adjustment in length of 1 ½” increments. The pole is shock supported and the end has 12” of adjustment in 3” increments.

As with all Hardwick Hideout vehicles, the wheels have tapered roller bearings. The wheels also have grease fittings to that the bearings can be greased without taking the wheels off.

The vehicles comes only with a single wedge seat as the vehicle is so small, a larger bench seat will not fit.

All assemblies and parts are powder coated separately. The pieces are then brought back from the paint shop and assembled.

All Hardwick Hideout vehicles are cut out, machined, shaped, TIG welded, and assembled here at the Hideout.
