However, one thing that often gets lost in the festival frenzy of campsite prep is logistics. Admittedly not the most exciting of subjects when compared to global music icons and frosty beverages in sun-kissed air, but an important point nonetheless.

Luckily, we have you covered here at PTT, with our very own festival trolleys – designed to make your campsite journey a walk in the park, not an expedition.

Carte Diem

When you arrive at a festival and hear the distant murmur of the sound stages reverberate across the land, it’s not unusual for the heart to beat a little faster, the hairs to stand up on end and anticipatory excitement to grab you firmly by the proverbial gonadulars.

As such, the very last thing you want to do in this scenario is begin an arduous odyssey, loaded up like a cart horse with several trips on the cards. For anyone that’s been there and done it, it’s a rookie mistake that’s rarely repeated twice.

If one of your vehicles has ever broken down or gotten stuck in a space that’s impossible to move from with none of the necessary equipment or gear, you’d probably wish you had a set of tow chains to make the job a whole easier. If you are prepared, however, and are equipped with a set of tow chains, it is important to know how to use them correctly to avoid creating further problems for yourself. To make things a little easier for yourself, we take a look at the essential information on how to use tow chains.

What is a tow chain?

Our range of tow chains is made up of a grade 80 chain with a tow chain hook and oval ring at either end. Due to their small and lightweight nature, they are able to be easily stored and should be a part of a vehicle emergency kit, particularly when driving in climates where the chances of becoming stuck are increased e.g. in snow and mud. When used correctly, tow chains can be a lifesaver, but when used incorrectly, you can cause severe damage to your vehicle.

8000kg M.B.S Tow Chain with Latch Hook

 

Attaching the hook to the towing vehicle

To begin the process of getting your vehicle removed from being stuck, the first thing you will need to do is attach the tow chain to the towing vehicle, using the hook end. This is often attached to the rear bumper of the vehicle or to a trailer hitch, which will have loops for a mounting hook. No matter which you have, both will provide an adequate amount of support for most towing tasks. These are the only places in which the hook should be properly and securely attached to. As an extra step of precaution, it is advised to give the tow chain a few tugs while making your way to the vehicle that is being pulled to ensure the hook is firmly fastened.

Attaching the tow chain to the vehicle being towed

Before you attach the opposite end of the tow chain to the inanimate car, you need to make sure that the tow chain has not become twisted. This will not directly the abilities of the tow chain, but it will affect the length of the chain and may cause some wear and tear on the chain over time. Once you’ve checked the chain is all good, you can now proceed to attach the other end to the front of the vehicle that is being towed. This is usually attached to a tow hook or a sturdy steel loop mounted underneath the front bumper or near the centre axle. A number of vehicles may have plastic covers over the hooks or are hidden in recessed nooks, either way, it is important to not attach the tow chain directly to the axle or any other part of hanging from under the front of the vehicle.

Begin to pull

Once both ends of the tow chain have been securely attached, you are now ready to pull. Ensure that both vehicles are manned at all times. If the towed vehicle is in full working order, it should be put into first gear with the handbrake off. If it is not in full working order, however, it should be left in neutral. The driver of the towing vehicle should drive very slowly, creeping forward until the tow chain becomes tight. Once this has happened, the vehicle is now able to be pulled. It is important to remember to keep all movements slow and controlled, as anything abrupt will be felt by the towed vehicle and may case the tow chain to become free.

By following these simple steps, you will be able to tow any vehicle with ease.

What are sack trucks?

A sack truck is a cart used to move heavy objects – these carts have wheels and handles which, when tilted back, make transporting heavier loads much easier and safer.

Despite the name ‘sack’, these carts can be used to move a plethora of items – providing they meet the weight limit of that particular cart and are an appropriate size. 

PalleTruck-Trolleys have a range of sack trucks to meet your needs. These trucks are available to buy or rent, depending on your personal requirements.

What makes folding sack trucks different?

The toe of any sack truck is where the load is located whilst using the device. Sack trucks with fixed toes tend to be limited to smaller items which can be placed on the fixed surface area, while folding toes have more room for materials to fit onto the fold out toe of the truck, making them adaptable and generally more popular as they can be used for multiple jobs.

What does PalleTruck-Trolleys have to offer?

Here at PalleTruck-Trolleys we have a wide range of folding sack trucks to suit multiple needs and jobs:
