Why do you use plastic wheel centres?

We make our wheel centres ourselves from a high density polypropylene. This is 6 times stronger than steel by weight, and is composed of a single piece. Making our wheel centres in this way means they are stronger and lighter than a traditional steel wheel.

How do I assemble my Barrow in a Box?

Our Barrow in a Box range is simple to assemble, with as few as 7 bolts to install. You can view our instruction leaflets and assembly video by following the links below, however here a few tips that may also help;

  • You may find it easier to assemble the barrow by turning it all "upside down". Start by placing the pan top down on a large flat surface such as a table, then resting the frame on the underside of the pan. This will give you better visibility of the end of the bolt.
  • Initially only turn the nuts onto the bolts one or two turns only, just enough to catch the end of the bolt. This will give you enough movement to get all parts in position. Once the parts are located, then go around tightening the nuts and bolts to pull the parts together.
  • You can't hurt it! Don't worry if the parts don't look like they will pull together, it is designed to go together under tension helping to reduce movement between the components.
  • Fit the wheel last. This will give you more space while getting the frame and pan fitted.
