Generator wheel kit needed...

I have a 10kW generator powered by a Kohler engine (TH16-GS).
The generator sits in a square tubing frame that came without wheels, but is predrilled for a bolt on axle.
 
Is there a wheel kit available (solid axle) that I could install?
 
Most of the ones I have seen are intended for 4-5kw generators and I am concerned would not hold up to the heavier load.

    Who made the generator? They would have the kit if available but something like that should not be hard to fabricate.

    Thanks for responding.
     
    The company was a local one that assembled Kohler engines with Gillete generators on a custom frame. They unfortunately went out of business over 15 years ago. If I can find a bolt-on solid axle wheel kit in the right axle length for a square tubed frame I can probably make it work. So far, I haven't spotted anything.
