The Octbox Seatbox with Motorised Wheel Kit comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

MATCH anglers are going to love Octbox’s motorised trolley system, available as a complete package, coming with their highly rated D25 or D36 Seatbox.

Cleverly converting the seatbox into a powered barrow in under a minute, thanks to the high ground clearance and a high torque, motorised axle that slots into the footplate and rear wheels, back-ache from having to push a barrow around is eliminated.

The barrow can be extended up to 4 ft in length, for bigger loads, or used in a compact, nearer 2 ft format. It’s certainly set to get the thumbs up from anglers who don’t want to be forced to cut back on how much they carry.

Super-stable, thanks to a four-wheel configuration, it comes complete with a variable speed control and an ultralight, 16 aH lithium powered battery.

In tests it has even powered an angler sitting on the box, though I wouldn’t recommend it!

Super robust, it comes with quick-release wheels, a quick-release battery and a three-year warranty.

Prices: Seatbox and Trolley packages £935 to £1,235.

Motorised Trolley, for Octbox owners, £585.
