Converting to a 4-Wheel Wagon
The Quad-Wheel Kit allows for the conversion of an ELEY 2-wheel cart (1043) to a 4-wheel wagon (1043Q). The front bumper of the cart is replaced with a wheeled frame giving more mobility and stability to the unit. This kit is compatible for hose reels sold from 2009 to present day.
Benefits of Having 4-Wheels
Stability: The two additional tires out front adds another 7-1/2" to the width of the front part of the frame and makes it slightly more stable than the 2-wheel model.
Mobility: The Quad-Wheel Kit allows to you maneuver the unit with a simple push/pull action, rather than the tip & push/pull action of the 2-wheel cart. However, it's important to note the quad-wheel kit does not have front wheels that swivel. To change direction, the user must slightly lift either the front or back wheels to turn the unit.
Balance: There is no balancing involved with the 4-wheel model. The 2-wheel model does require you to balance the unit while either pushing or pulling it to the desired location.
Quality Components & Easy Assembly
The quad-wheel kit comes with an aluminum-alloy frame, 2-flat free tires, and the required hardware. Assembly into a 4-wheel wagon is completed using simple steps in the installation manual.
