  • Match Box Trolley

    I have a Match box but the bottom section is fibre glass. what's the best trolley for wheeling this down a mile of river bank? Also would you take a foot plate to the river or leave it at home?

    Thanks in advance.

    Everything depends on the terrain you have to cross and what type of banks you have. My matchbox travels on a barrow/platform whenever it can and the footplate goes everywhere even if I know I'll be in the water on the platform.
    Is there a path? Are there fences or stiles to negotiate? Are the pegs cut out or are there platforms? Do you need a pole cos if you don't there's a lot of associated junk you could leave at home.
    If you know the river then picture your usual set up in the pegs and you should be able to work it all out.

      Thanks Team Rattler, What barrow do you use. I mostly I will not be crossing stiles or fences. Just on the River banks and footpaths around natural venues?

        Etec I use a Preston shuttle with my Matchbox Pyramid it slots straight in to the adaptor that came with the trolley.

            Hi Brian, does the box sit on the trolley with the bottom box against the trolley as on mine I have the 150mm base and that is made out of Fiber Glass and that is what I am concerned about as it may get damaged, or does this adaptor stop this?

                I have the same box, for commercials it goes on my preston shuttle, for rivers it goes on a TFG single barrow thing.
                Why the concearn about the base, just lower the lgs to lift the base off the trolly, i also took a hacksaw to my shuttle adapter arm things and sliced the box section in half them slipped a peice of foam lagging around it box fits a treat and does not move an inch even if the shuttle almost tips over

                  The base does sit on the shuttle but as said i only use the shuttle for commys which have nice paths, so no damge should come to the base at all, on rivers where the terrain is far from nice the box sits on its legs on the single wheel barrow

                    Thanks Rick, Just the answers I was looking for. So for nice flat smooth venues you use a Shuttle and sit the base unit on it, then for rougher terrain you use a barrow. Just looked at some and have found a decent TF Gear one that has a mesh for the legs to sit on.

                      No probs mate, the one i have is he trail blazer, i had mine 2nd hand out the local used site, paid £25. I lke it for the sides that once you put your box and carryhall on just one bungy lastic goes over pulls the sides in on the box and bag and all secure, the only reason i dont use the shuttle on rivers is its double wheeled and you wudnt stand a chance along the banks around Bewdley and Bridgnorth

                        Cheers Rick. The trail blazer is the one I have in my watch list so will see if one comes up. I know what you mean around Bridgenorth etc. some hills and rough terrain.
