Amanco Trolley

Post by Abes on Wed Oct 16 2013, 17:06

Well as some of you know acquired an Amanco a little while back engine was spot on but the trolley was a little on the ruff side so with that in mind decided it needed a new one also decided it was going to be a barrow trolley, so after a lot of pondering and scratching of head I came up with a ruff idea of what I wanted, big thanks to Chris for his hard work on the handles and the slabs of wood which have now been cut to size and planned and cheers to Matt for the wheels, pics of loose fit below

Done a bit more on the trolley this afternoon, being a barrow trolley there always a bit of a pain loading into the van so I decided to make a removable small axel to bolt on to the rear rests so with a bit of welding and grinding this is what I came up with still a bit to do but its getting there, pic below

that is quite a good idea, one thing that wheels would not work on wet grass. Are you staining the trolly or just varnish?

That's the idea mate, loads on the first coat leave for a day or two, wipe off excess with soft cloth then just rub in a couple of more thin coats
