About our Rolling Chassis:

Our well proportioned Blacksmith made chassis' are constructed from heavy duty British steel angle / box section and solid bar throughout. Unlike chassis' made entirely from box section, the sides of our chassis' are constructed from heavy duty angle iron, into which your timber floor construction fits. This ensures that the overall depth of your floor, including metalwork, is kept to a minimum.

Our chassis' are bespoke made and are usually supplied within 3-4 weeks from order. Please note they are supplied unpainted. Please also note that we can also supply other sizes, both larger and smaller. Please contact us for details.

 

Useful info:

Whilst we are happy to supply this item "sight unseen", it is advisable to visit us to check out the build quality and specification before ordering your chassis. Customers have found this very useful in eliminating construction problems further "down the line".
Customers often ask "how do you move a rolling chassis that doesn't have a turntable?" The answer is actually quite straightforward! If you are needing to move it some distance, attach our custom made draw bar with 2 bolts, then simply raise the end of the hut using a trolley jack (see picture at left) and lower the ring onto a suitable 4 wheel drive or tractor hitch. Lower and remove the trolley jack and the 2 wheels nearest the vehicle will be slightly raised off the ground, thus making your hut highly manoeuvrable!

When positioning your hut, you may need to move one end sideways. A useful tip: Using the draw bar again, simply raise the end of the hut on a trolley jack, ensuring there are boards underneath the jack. When the 2 wheels are suspended off the ground by the trolley jack, the hut can be pushed sideways by 2 people. Don't worry if this is confusing - If you are purchasing a chassis from us, we will explain the process fully and clearly!
