I love mine. I fish some uddy places and have had no issue this winter with the bed chair getting muddy, its very light and the best part of it too me is the bag under the barrow. Owned a few barrows and imo its properly one of the best on the market and the only thing thing letting it down is its price.

My previous barrow was,... well exactly that,.... a barrow. 15 years ago anyway.
Had a bit of a sebatical :-)

Anyway it served a purpose.
Wheel was made removable and the legs were cutt off. Holes were drilled into the barrow itself to aid
water removal after a downpour.
The rim was also drilled with holes every 2 inches to aid with tying on stuff.
It plain worked.

When I saw a Trakker access Barrow pop-up in the local classifieds,... I pounced on it!

This thing is Carpy heaven on a single wheel, such copious amounts of easy accesable space.
Fully collapsable when needed, although the carp mobile allows a simple ďstick it in the backĒ approach.

Wheel needs to be upgraded to a slightly larger size with proper ball bearings and some decent rubber.
And they should sack the designer that thought square handles would do.
Some minor shortcomings which can easily be endured untill DIY time is found.

I even take it for short sessions,... it just plain practical.
Army tarp keeps everything dry and lives in the barrow.

A definate

So I am out fishing tonight and thought I would load my fat boy barrow up at a bit different to normal.
I put the bedchair standing up right at the very front of the barrow and used my unhooking mat as a base to load my bag and other bits on behind the bedchair.

Thought you would all like to know this works an absolute treat and makes it even easier to push my barrow.

Saved myself three hundred quid as well .

I been loading my Carp Porter barrow like this for years. Bedchair upright at the front, this not only leaves access to the under barrow bag, but works well in supporting rod holdalls, brollies etc.

I really like the look of this and it ticks a lot of my OCD boxes!

I can see a lot of people getting knocked clean out by it though if they leave the bedchair attached to the front and the handles shoot upwards and hit you plum under the chin as you remove the last heavy bag from the frame....proper uppercut.....!!!

Despite the price, (bet it will be about £250 at most places) I can see them selling well...it's a great concept and the skirts keep everything nicely contained, no more buckets falling out and spilling a kilo of spod mix all over the place.

The major downside for me is weight.....I asked Trakker and it is 19.6KG so not the lightest barrow by any means although I don't think it is intended to be. The MK2 Carp Porter in comparison weighs 14KG...so if you are covering a fair distance that's an extra 5K you are hauling before you even start....

if I remember right in the vid it states need to load bed when the barrow is loaded which seems about right otherwise would topple

I get the design, I use items that are always underneath by bedchair when keeping mobile before I setup for the night and having to keep taking the buckets, bedchair etc off does my head in! Did this the other week and a full bucket of glugged boiles fell of the barrow and into a pile of tiny stones, picking them up one by one was not a fun job

Also you have to take a lot of heavy stuff.reason being ,once you put the bed chair on the front that could weigh between say 8-14 kilos with bag, it be so front heavy it will tip forward won't it? so you need loads of heavy stuff to counter balance it

When I saw It this looked ideal for what I need with the bedchair on the front.
But I will wait for a cheaper copy to come out or the price to drop, £300 is really taking the proverbial.
