The Red Army Ammo box although Bomb Proof :rolleyes: is doing my back in :)

Whilst perusing YouTube I came across this video:

Now, my local DIY Store is closing down and had these on sale so I thought, why not?

This thing holds more than the Ammo box and is considerably lighter.

I'm still test and adjusting at the mo and it needs a Feild test.

I'll Let you know how I get on. :cool:

that's a great idea mate, that red box just about did for you last weekend, and it completely defeated the table!

you need to find some spice pots that'll fit in the little yellow semi-circle bit now

Good idea Stuart, but I think my food items will stay in the Zarges box for now :)

Maybe batteries, lighters, matches, plasters etc?

That's a great idea Martin. Be interesting to see how it performs

But at least the repair held up for the rest of the weekend... though we didn't really stress it with Martins red box :lmao::lmao:

nice idea martin, I,ve not long bought one of these myself from B&Q, think it was 20. I bought to consolidate all my other tool boxes and keep all my tools together. I did think about it for shrafting, but wasn’t sure about the ground clearance underneath the box, also the wheels are fairly small, I thought maybe swapping them with golf cart wheels or something similar, may be easier over woodland terrain, paths etc. Would like to know how it performs.

Thanks Alan,

Testing them at the end of the month at a North Wood Meet:

I used to use one very similar on paediatric critical care retrievals racked up with all sorts of life support consumables. Very hard wearing. We only broke one in the three years I ran with that team - and I fixed it quite easily.

Well, back from this Meet:

http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=75616

Boxes worked well, stored loads of extra equipment, covered the ground well into the area were lighter and easier to move. I will be sticking to this system for a while.

I've been dragging one of those around site for 6 years! Its still not dead. I did my best to kill it when my fishing trolley lost its wheel, but failed.

FWIW, not much good as a step ladder unless your skilled on wheeled stilts.
