    Ballast Box Trolley Cart Question

    Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere already, but I couldn't seem to find the exact answer I was looking for. Can anyone who has one of these tell me exactly how this cart attaches to the ballast box? I see where it says "self locking screws" on the website, but where exactly do they attach and do you have to drill holes in the box to make them work?

    Thanks,
    -JR

    I have one. There are bolts which thread in thru the side of the trolley and tighten against the ballast box. You don't have to do any drilling. They are very secure.

    You can see them on the photos below

    Is the trolley easy to move with a loaded box?

    cart is worth it

    I dont leave my cart attached when the box is on.I just set it down on the cart and unhook when I dont need the box.Cart has a low center of gravity and pushes well.My ballast box weighs 700 pounds and i can push it away by myself.I am very satisfied with my cart and have found Artillian equipment exceptional.green raider.

    I just use a furniture dolly for my ballast box and it's easy to move.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    Yes - considering the weight of my ballast box. I have a wooden floor in my storage shed and my ballast box weighs almost 800 lbs. With the trolley I am able to easily move it around in the shed. Don't get me wrong, there's no chance of it "getting away from me" when moving, but the Artillian trolley works better than any of the various home made carts I've tried.

    I leave mine on all the time.

    Thanks for your question and sorry for the unclear information on the website. I will see that it gets improved asap.

    And to confirm what has been shown already, there is no modification to your ballast box necessary. Installation takes about 5-10 minutes, which includes the time to gather a hand tool or two. Just tighten four opposing screws against the ballast box.

    The lack of safety of using a furniture dolly is why these carts were developed, including, the slippery carpet, cheap caster wheels prone to binding, and a high center of gravity all lead to a high risk of tip over and potential resulting injury to anyone nearby.
