    Just noticed this in Screwfix. It's on offer right now, so if you want one get it.

    Lightweight folding sack truck, £15 inc VAT

    Holds up to 68kg. So would make a DIY WFP trolley if you don't want one to take up much room in your vehicle - car or van. Yes, it has small wheels, but that works fine in most sitiuations, especially if you have a town based run with paths round houses and not stone or dirt track.

    I haven't used this exact one myself, but have used one something similar. It's worth a punt if you are looking for something like this.

    Yes they were the first ones we used also.
    But as you said the wheels tend to want to fold in.
    At the time the way we fixed this problem as in the video below.
    It also made it so the wheels wouldn't wear unevenly.

    I had one a couple of years back and it lasted about a month absolute waste of time...
    There was a similar one in B+M bargains at the time on the painting and decorating section that lasted nearly a year
