This is a great trolley. It's a little on the expensive side, but having had some of the "cheaper" ones this is the real deal. Save your money and get this one if you want to shift your tools, drills boxes of screws and just about anything else that you need from the van to the job! It's got a proper length handle so you're not stooping down when pushing or pulling it along and the bar between the wheels keeps it stable. It's just well made and has been thought about.

I needed a strong, but light, means of moving my 6-berth frame tent and poles plus a whole host of sundry other equipment,'fridge included, across rough ground to the tent site at various festivals. After the festival season was over, it would then have to be strong enough to hump 1/2 cwt bags of coal around the outside of the house to the coal bunker for Winter. The festival bit has been a resounding success! From the unloading point to the tent site usually takes about 30-40 mins to shift everything over and also entails a lot of huffing and puffing and swearing. Not this time. 5-10 mins and all was over in place. And at the finish of the move, a simple fold down and place out of the way ready for the strike down, which went just as smooth. Being a collapsable beastie, it's dead easy to stick it somewhere out of the way where it won't get fallen over in the wee hours when staggering back after a good jam session in the main arena. It's just as easy to store at home, even behind the sofa, if you feel so inclined...! I haven't yet tried it out on the coal bags, well, Winter isn't here... yet. But the weight it carried at one festival (canvas frame tent; poles; 'fridge(loaded!); 2 chairs and footstools and a crate of bits) I would guesse wasn't that far off, and it did it with remarkabnle ease and no signs of strain. All that across a field for 300yds. One thing, though, get a good selection of bungee straps to go with it. You'll need them. The supplied strap (the yellow thing in the 'photo)is good, but more are needed if you want to carry a lot of stuff.
Still, marks out of 10? A solid 9.9. The 0.1 loss is because of the bungee. A good machine and well worth it. Recommended.

well basically, if you have takss which involve lifting of a equipment on a daily basis! This is JUST FOR YOU! Back injuries are common place, so why not do you back a favour and invest in protecting it! This machine, is great, I managed to get a workstation, 30inch screen, 2 x 21inch screens, and a 19in screen, all boxed on this trolley at one time.
Sure thats not recommended, but its stood the test of time. I've used this mostly during work, and I would always recommend this to anyone. Folds neatly and very rugged. GREAT BUY!
