Righteo lad's

For all of you with relatively small cabs like Berg 12s or the like here's your backs savior: This folding trolley is absolutely brilliant. Picked it up from Bunnings for $60. Rated at 90kg. :D :notworthy:

Also, for all of you considering a Mooradian double bag (Namely Rick) here's some very low quality pictures taken by my skillful self:

For everyone out there with a single Mooradian (Namely Dave :P) You should have bought a double :rolf:

And my latest toy:

PS Rick told me to post in basses xD

Thanks for the pointer. Over at BABP we were just discussion the subject of hand trucks, and apparently that style of trolley is very common in the US, but I'd never seen them here. Great timing!

I would have thought electronics. The fold away idea is a nice one and good for small cabs as you say.

I usually keep a look out for those at Bunnings - Ive never seen em. I will drop $60 on that any day.
Greensquare used to sell a similar looking item but it was big $$$ and I am sure better quality. That is sweet, now I know what to look out for! thanks

LOL, thanks mate, thanks :D i'd have to buy another bass first... or not sell the one i just bought :help

For anyone interested in a mooradian i can't recommend them enough. tough and simple...

and that trolley is a copy of a design by a German company called Braucke... i've always wanted one but they are very expensive. I've got a mate who's been using one for 5+ years and it's never missed a beat... brilliant piece of design work.

That trolley looks great!! I've become a "trolley Afficianado" ;-) as of late!! I bought my 1st one when I 1st got mu VAN- where as B4 I had a station wagon & once all the gear was inside there wasn't really room for a trolley, but as the saying goes..... "once U have a trolley you never go back!" or is that sumthin' different...??? BUt anyway- since my Wife sings in most of the bands I play in- I have to take the PA- to most gigs anyway- So once I got a trolly......wow NO TURNING BACK!!! I've since stolen another trolley- well it was in an abondoned house & was rusty & had one wheel, so I fixed it up & it's my No.2 !! Then I saw advertised at Bunnings-on special at $30- a trolley with the possibilty to use as a flat bed type thing OR as a reg. hand trolley so I hadda have that. NOW I see this one above!!! Would be great for the smaller gigs & since it folds up SO small..... Hmmmm that'd make 4 trolleys!! Maybe then my trolley GAS'd go away!!?!?!?????

I too have now purchased one of these foldable trolleys, and today I'm really putting it through its paces. Got the Eden CXC210 combo and my gear box on the trolley, both tied down with straps. I managed to lug both of them from my place in Darlinghurst to the office in the CBD in about 40 minutes but it was a hard slog, given it's probably a 40kg load or thereabouts.

My only complaint is that the handle is not long enough. Maybe I'm taller than the average user, or you're not meant to be lugging combo amps around on it, but it wasn't the most comfortable walks I've ever had to work. Fortunately the gig this afternoon is only in Circular Quay so it's not too far. Just have to steel myself for the long walk home afterwards :(

F**k that. If it's a paid gig, surely a taxi home is the go?
