hand (sack) barrow.

Post by daxi on Sun May 08, 2011 6:16 am

An idea & one that works. A cheap hand (sack) barrow, a square of wood to make life easier & you have one cheap multi use tool,. With out the wood you have a method of transporting kit & mounting/earthing a mobile whip & with the wood, you can then use the barrow to bungie strap you mast/roach pole to the upright barrow. Come to that bungie the mast to the barrow, bungie your battery to the barrow & there you go, portable sloper wire/end fed.
I got a decent & heavy duty (i.e big barrow with lots of metal,) for 20. It makes an excellent trolley for Raynet etc use as I can go out with a mast & a handie connected to a high-ish vertical, or use it as a drive on base.

It works nicely. OK it looks a little silly when you are pushing it about with a mast strapped to it & with battery etc on it, but so does my back pack with 6 meter roach rod vertical & counterpoise tail that I use for 20m pedestrian mobile.
I use the wood to give me a exstend the base plate & thus give me a decent space (12 to 18 inches) between car & mast.
