    How will you mount it?

    You can mount the drive axle at one end of the trolley or in the centre of the trolley.

    An end-mounted solution will require two swivel castors at the opposite end. The drive axle will steer like two fixed wheels at the end of the trolley. The turning circle will be larger. This arrangement has no problem navigating ramps – especially the transition between flat and inclined surface.

    A centre-mounted solution will require four swivel castors at each trolley corner. The trolley will pivot about the centre of the drive axle. The turning circle is minimal (zero-turn) and excellent for handling in tight spaces. This arrangement may have problems navigating some ramps.
