Do you okes actually want a cart like that?.

I thought you were all joking.

Using locally available boxes etc a "nice local is lekker" version could be built.:SSS

Hi Mikey

I tried a couple of "local is lekker" versions based on golf carts and own designs, but the problem was with getting appropriate tyres for the sand. Tried a variety that I could get hold of, but they either did not work lekker in loose sand, and those that did (pneumatic go-cart weels) were too expensive, and too heavy if you get to a spot where you need to pick it up onto the rocks or onto the back of the bakkie. 

I bet you you cannot solve this problem :spite

I can get Go kart tyres by the thousand. I just don't think the guys would spend more than a grand on a cart of any description. I think the carts are only too heavy because of what it's been loaded with.

That's True!

The one Idea I had...still have... is H-frame type backpack set-up, with detachable wheel / inflatable roller that you can comfortably carry over rocks, yet pul for long distances over sand. That way you do not need separate systems for fishing rocks or sand.

Maybe you need wider wheels.

Another set side by side or get kart wheels.

They make some plastic rims for karts and you could try the KART SHOPPE.

As for tyres they'll give you as many used ones as you can carry.
