  • Preston Shuttle Conversion

    This may be old hat for some folk but if like me you wanted to convert your shuttle to a 4 wheel version I was put on to a chap named Steve Worth, who make these. It consists of the axle unit to enable it to be fixed to the rear of the shuttle. There's no drilling or riveting etc so if you want you can revert it back to a 2 wheel version if required.

    The quality of the kit is excellent all the square tubing is powder coated and made to a very high standard. I ordered mine and it was delivered by courier two days later. Total cost including a pair of wheels is around £50. I put a couple of pictures on so you can see how it all fits together.

    If you thinking of upgrading your shuttle then definitely get in touch with Steve Worth on 07885 138393 you find him very helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

    Cheers

        Like the wider stance to prevent tipping, will now give this some serious thought.

          Has anyone tried the wider axles on the four wheeler? I'm thinking of getting them- if they make a difference.

            Hi paul, they do make a difference .. stops the rocking, if you put this conversion (rear) ir just fit wheels to the down legs you keep the long original handles. when the trolly tips or rocks the original 2 wheel barrow arms are not as strong as 4 wheel built for purpose ones. different force rather than up and down

                    Yeap the wheels simply go on to the axle and then tighten up the nylon lock nuts. Defo recommend I use mine every trip since the conversion, just want some furry dice and go faster stripes now! Lol Lol

                        I did it myself
                        Took the wheels & Motor from a Golf trolley
                        Attached to a Carrier section & replaced the Rear axle
                        The wheels are approx 8" wider
                        & the Battery holds enough charge to Travel the equivelant of 36holes on Golf course
                        No effort needed just turn the Switch & it will transport your gear even up the steepest hill!!
