We had a Bristol Maid trolley at Blackpool - a sturdy 2 level blue framed trolley with 2 red buckets which we used to cart around medical equipment. It is no more and has been condemned.

I need to find a replacement that is no heavier, and can cope with the equipment we regularly transport. What do people use in their workplaces for carrying equipment ? any ideas/recommendations ? I would really really appreciate any help here. We are using our back up trolley which is too small right now and slowing us up substantially cry

HELP!!! eek smile

Which one?

If you have lots of money, why not draw up your own spec of exactly what you need (big wheels, brakes, etc.), then start looking in catalogues like Metro?

If you don't mind the "industrial" look, you could even go for a folding one!

Actually, there are many variations available. As I say, if I were you I would design my own, and then (either build it myself, or...) spend a bit of time on the web! smile

Yes, Mate, but actually made by others (and therefore cheaper elsewhere)!

And, thinking about it, I believe I would go for pneumatic tyres, myself. How about one of these? smile

Yeah, it's taken me at least four years to get used to it! But actually, I have reservations about all this customer choice. These days it takes me forever just to select a loaf of bread from the zillions on display at ASDA, Morrisons, Safeways, Tesco et al. And don't even ask about HomeBase, or B&Q! smile

Have you tried W Shuttleworth of Oldham.
01706845966
They have a catalogue range, but will basically make anything you want. From cylinder trolleys, carts, bedside stands, equipmnt trolleys etc.
They are a manufacturing company who also suply some of the above.
We had some custom made cylnder transporters and a couple of test equipment trolleys made.

I found an old notes trolley and fitted the wheels from an old crash trolley to it.

Big wheels were needed because during the PFI process we were relocated into a stand alone building across the car park (glorified shed).
