Free C&C, seems to be good stock about.

The Halfords Folding Festival Kart Trolley is great for moving all your camping gear from the car park to the campsite at a festival. The kart is compact and lightweight when folded making it easy to transport and store when not in use, when required it simply folds out and the telescopic handle extends. Once loaded simply tilt and pull along!

Bear in mind that most festivals are on 'grass' which this trolley is not designed for, therefore you will spend more time adjusting your gear than actually moving it anywhere. Trollies of this design do not work at festivals, the wheelbase/wheels need to be a lot wider for this to stay moving/stable on anything but a hard flat surface.

Nice find
Nice find,

Looks a lot like the Rolson one (guess its just a generic rebranded design). I payed £11 on Amazon a few days ago so definitely a good price.
Is this used to wheel the drunken people away from the festival

Was just about to say the same. Field grass as well, not some well manicured lawn. Would be a nightmare using that in a field
wasn't this posted a few days ago? heated

seems pointless

as above, grass/mud
35kg max so carry-able anyway
1 person surely isn't going to take all that so can be split down between etc

Or the weakest person can pull this and the rest of the load can be carried by the other stronger people of the group?

yes, but if the weak person pulled along the 35KGs of stuff and the others carried the rest of the 10 to 15KGs of stuff each, then this is not so pointless

ofc depends how much they are taking, 35kg on this over grass is going to be harder than 10kg on the back anyway
Don't buy this for use at a festival, it will die in seconds.

Small wheels, no good on grass.

You joke, but I actually saw someone using a shopping trolley at Kendal Calling last week (let's just say they were struggling!)

There's a workaround...

I'm just jealous that people have time to go to festivals.
A Newspaper Trolley off ebay can be a good alternative, especially if you can find one locally second hand
Great deal for a kart, but this is utterly useless for a festival and should no be advertised as such by Halfords!
How on earth will this go over mud & grass... it wont, the wheels will clog up in under 10 seconds!
Sorry, a cold from me because of the above.
Decent price but not fit for purpose.
I use a fishing trolley with much bigger wheels. Coped well with Drownload Festival the other year.
Just attach you bags to a plank of wood and drag it along - exactly the same as using this.

I bought this the last time it was on offer and agree with this quote. I was fighting my trolley to stay the right way up when I took it out, not only on grass either. Cheap and nasty. Not fit for purpose.
Yep, not strong enough to cope with even the flattest of festivals in good weather, you see these abandoned everywhere.

As someone above says, it's the same as the Rolson one and as well all know, you're lucky if Rolson kit even lasts one use. Their company motto seems to be "buy cheaply, pay twice"

Freezing cold for festival use, sorry.

Always have a good old chuckle at the spilt belongings on the side of the paths from car to campsite at any festival I've ever been to in the last 25 years.... Don't be a laughing stock! Use a rucksack or get a way beefier trolley. This is qrap and will break.
You can get a better one at ASDA with larger wheels for 50p more.

No link needed just pop into ASDA where the camping equipment is and you’ll see them. Mine had a carry on suitcase, a cooler box and a large bag handled them all no problem.

Yup that looks like it and I bought mine last month. I wouldn’t use it for a Festival though as we use the 4 wheel trucks they sell at ALDI in the summer.

Ah! Doesn’t help me then. £7.50 I would have been on it. Not sure it would take my weight though

What festival?
Having been to festivals for over 10 years, this trolley is more hassle than it's worth, you need inflatable tyres for festival grounds
Good for moving empty boxes around.
Heat for price!
Take heed of advice here guys.

Trolleys sounds great in theory.
If you buy something like this, however cheap it may be, you gotta make some sacrifices.
Strap on your equipment on tight. You hit a bump (like any grass) your duff is going sideways.
In mud, wheels are useless, you'll be dragging it, and not in a sled + snow kinda way - more like 30kg on spikes kinda way.

Expect it to break before you get back to the car.
Expect your friends to walk off without you as you adjust/Replace your cargo (if you notice it before it drops off) for the 30th time.

Expect your quads and biceps to ache for days/be useless as your body recovers from the dragging over ground.

Bring Duct tape, did I mention it's going to break.

Bring strong non-elastic cable, did I mention it's going to break.

In all my years the only thing that works well, are the 4 wheel trolleys, with large wheels (bring anti puncture spray)and they work brilliantly.

Except, they are expensive, and they will get stolen.
So you gotta Trek back to the car and put it back.

And Trek back to the car to get it again.

Basically guys, go frugle. If you can't carry it for 3 miles, you can't bring it.

Peace out ✌
Lots of practical advice from the parents and grand parents about trolleys. Also, don't forget to take enough clean underwear and don't stand too close to the speakers. And stay away from the bad boys and girls.
Damn I paid £20 for a similar one a few months back, helps me when I deliver for amazon flex

What's the capacity like on that one, would it be any good for typical festival situations such as carrying an average sized student back to the tent that is tripping their face off after doing shrooms and ket for the first time whilst watching Ed Sheeran and wanting that "authentic festival rock and roll festival experience"?

It was bad. It's tiny and grass makes it go all over the place. Finally we also had gravel...it was a nightmare
