Hi, I am looking for ideas or plans for a beach trolley to easily transport fishing gear on the beach from point a to b. Time is running out and I need to build one before 14 June.   Roy

Hi Guys
Just my 2cents

I have just recently built my own trolley for the beach and gave it a test run at Gamtoos this past weekend. It worked well and cost me under R120 to make.
I have tried a golf cart but it seems as if the wheel spacing is a bit narrow and it tends to run into your tracks and bounces all over or keeps wanting to tip over.
Will try and take pics tomorrow and post it for an example.

I used golf cart wheels and they work fine but I extended the wheelbase so it doesnt run in your tracks.

Die golf kart met die sitplek werk ook lekker.

Roland se een is lekker lig en werk ook soos 'n bom en die materiaal is nie te duur nie.

Dunno if it totally impractical or something but why has nobody done a sled effort for this purpose? Just thinking of the large loads carried by sleds...

Anyone?

Hear say ther beach trolley is a good idea....on low tide!!


But when the tide turns and you walk back on the high water...

you end up walking in the flotsum and jetsum....

or on the klippe......and eventually you are carrying everything again!??  :fbash

Guys;

aspects to consider.
keep it small, at the biggest two clover milk crates is big enough.
if you build it bigger, it ways more, you load more crap into it, and then you suffer.

wheels:
we have found that bicycle wheels 20 inch works fine.

thin wheels do tend to cut into the sand where the sand is harder. they then tend to move better over the sand then the wider wheels, as the wider wheels have more sand and friction.
try to get wheels with plastic rims as they dont rust.
also get wheel with the 10mm shaft as the 8mm shaft tends to bend under heavy loads.
we have also found, that making the cart to be pushed by a rod stand/ pension pipe helps with the human motion and a woble effect is given to your hands.
with your hands / arms absorbing this back force of the trolly, it is pushed much easier over the loose sand.

currently i have made mine out of steel which is heavier then aluminium. one day i'll make one of aluminium.

rods can be upright, as long as your spacing is so that the rod tips dont bump against each other.

when rods are lying on the cart, see how high you can get them, as the sand have always gotten a way to get to the reels.

jsut my 2 sents

Have a look at this one available from the US, it weighs only 13lbs-6Kg and would be great as a bait station

Keep it small and easy to handle.

Jy moet net 2 emmers kan op laai met lewendige aas en een boks met jou tackle in. Van die ouens gebruik Mountain Bike wiele op hulle trollies met 'n lekker lang handa vatsel. Dit werk nagla nie te sleg in die dik sand nie. Die ander opsie is Golf Kart wiele wat jy foam om cable tie. Gee lakker oppervlakte en werk ook lekker op die dik sand.

Onthou net dat dit belangrik is dat jy die wiele kan af haal, anders gaan jy sukkel om hom te verpak in jou bakkie of kar.

As jy twee manne is wat altyd saam hengel dan werk die trollie nog beter want dan is daar 2 van julle wat kan sleep of kry vir jou 'n BULL MASTIVE hond. LOL hy sal alles vir jou geod kan rond sleep en dan kry hy oefening ook.
