It'd have to have a separate braking system. Release the lever to disengage the drive and it would just freewheel..

The Merry Tiller trailer was similar but had the wheels further forwards so the box body could tip. As I wrote in the first posting, getting that double slewing ring rolled out of channel iron takes a specialist. Trailers do pop up on eBay now and again, but often come with Merry Tiller and make a lot of money. Back in the day, they were sold separately from a braking system, that was another option, people were not as particular about safety in those days.
