Packing for a festival can be tricky, especially British festivals as you can never guarantee the nice weather. When going to a festival, you want to be prepared and make sure you pack all the essentials, just in case. When packing for a festival, you tend to pack lots of things, but have you ever thought how you're actually going to carry it all to your campsite? 

At PalleTrucks-Trolleys, we have put together a small checklist of the things you need to take whilst attending a festival and, how to transport all of your items:

Are you struggling to assemble your Garden Cart? Or recently bought a ‘Garden Tipping Cart Dumper Trolley’ from PalleTrucks-Trolleys and are yet to assemble it? Look and stress no more, here’s our simple step-by-step garden cart assembly instructions that will help you assemble your cart quickly and easily;

 

Firstly, place your cart with the hollow end facing the floor, this makes it easier to assemble the rest of the parts.

 

STEP 1:

  • Locate the rear axle and then bolt using two M8 X 45mm bolts.
  • Once you have done this, locate the two rear axle straps. Bolt these to the cart’s tray (on top of the tray in your case) using two M8 X 20mm carriage bolts.

 

STEP 2:

  • After locating and bolting your rear axle and axels straps, it’s now time to locate the front lock assembly.
  • After locating this, bolt this to the cart’s tray using two M8 X 20mm bolts.

 

Now you’re at the stage where you can assemble the front axle assembly to the front frame.

 

STEP 3: The front frame

  • The front frame should be facing upwards.
  • The front part of the frame should be bolted using the two M8 X 40mm Allen head screws.

 

 

STAGE 4:

  • The middle of the front frame should then be bolted by using two M8 X 20mm bolts.

 

STAGE 5:

  • Now you can assemble the front lock and front frame (stages 2 and 3) to the cart’s tray using two M8 X 20mm bolts.

 

STAGE 6:

  • Next, you can install two spacers on each axle.
  • The wheels can then be added to the garden cart – these are locked in by washers and a retaining pin.

 

STAGE 7:

  • You should now only have two M8 bolts left, which are to be used to secure the lock and frame.

 

STAGE 8:

  • Lastly, it’s now time to attach the handle of your garden cart with the final two bolts.

 

** Just remember: your wheels may need inflating! **

 

And there you have it – a fully assembled cart. We hope our guide has made it easier to put together your garden cart. You can also watch these garden cart assembly instructions in video format right here or purchase a garden cart from PalleTrucks-Trolleys, specialists in pallet trucks and material handling products.

We recently did a post on the safe use of ladders which you can read here. However, although you may understand how to use a ladder safely, you may not know which ladder is the appropriate choice for the job - you may be asking yourself "What type of ladder do I need?".

If you do find yourself unsure of the answer, we can help. If you're looking for a ladder you can see our range of choices here. To help you more, here's a guide to help you pick the right ladder to suit your needs. 

 

 Work Step Ladders

Step ladders are a staple in many warehouses, retail and storage environments. Compact enough to be quickly folded away, these ladders are shorter than most full-length ladders which makes them the ideal choice for low-level lifting operations. Step ladders tend the be securing enough to work on, as long as you follow the safe use of ladders regulations. You can even get step ladders with added anti-slip properties, such as our Heavy Duty Steel Anti-Slip 4 Step Ladder.   

 

Telescopic Ladders 

Telescopic ladders are great for a range of operations, from lightweight to heavy-duty jobs, there will be a telescopic ladder to suit your needs. Telescopic ladders are collapsible which means they can be stored more easily than traditional extendable ladders.

Telescopic ladders are strong and durable but with the added benefit of being easily transferable. They are the right choice for anyone who may travel with their equipment such as a contractor or a rigger who need a ladder on the go. Our 2.6mtr Telescopic Aluminium ladder is light enough to transport but has an impressive 150kgs weight capacity.

 

Extension Ladders

Extension work ladders are great in locations where a ladder is used often such as a construction or industry based environment. These ladders can be reduced in size (similar to a telescopic ladder but not as small) which means they can also be transported. Our sister site SafetyLiftinGear.com sells these ladders that are specifically made for construction sites, take a closer look here

 

If you have any further questions about which ladder you may need for your project we are more than happy to help. If you need advice about ladders or any of our other products feel free to get in touch, contact us here today
