Hand-cart (trolley) recommendations
« on: May 07, 2019, 02:07:32 pm »
Does anyone have any recommendations for a good, sturdy hand-cart for shifting stuff around the farm, both in the yard and across the fields?

I'm after something with four wheels, handle at the front, steerable via the handle and with drop (or removable) sides around 9" deep. I'm only looking to pull by hand, not towing behind machinery.

But it has to be up to the job. We had one from Cobra (cost about a hundred quid), but I've twice managed to sheer a wheel off pulling modest loads (a lot less than the 320kg rated load) across not-too-bumpy fields. It's also a bit narrow and prone to tipping when going across a slope. I think it's more aimed at level garden work, and I'm looking for something a bit more heavy-duty.

Any and all recommendations gratefully received.

..sounds like my old soap-box cart when i was 9  ;D . I you design it right then you can sit in it for downhill on the way back, steering with your feet..  :roflanim: .

.. takes 1 packing case and 4 pram wheels and a coach-bolt...
