Wooden rack-wagons were used throughout Europe for hundreds of years to bring in the harvest et to transport products to the market. The design of the rack-wagon was relatively standardized. The undercarriage consisted of a forward train avec plug-in shaft, connected to the rear axle by a round wood - known as Langwied en allemand. The Langwied was secured to the forward train by a swivel-pin. The sides of the véhicule body were simple ladders, sometimes closed avec fascines to prevent farm produce from falling off. Chariots paysans of this type were used well into the 1960s, either drawn by horses, oxen, ou tractors.
