Update - Long range battery hits 15km!
One of our field testers has managed to get 15km range from the long-range battery pack on a single charge. Thats a lot of barrowing!
*(unless you select the no-battery option)
Q.How much does it cost?
A. Prices start from £350 for the basic kit. Various battery options are available and priced accordingly.
Q. How long does the battery last?
A. This will of course depend on your usage. During testing our field testers were issued with the long range batteries. Some of these guys are sponsored anglers fishing 2, 3, or more times per week. The shortest time between charges was 3 months! For this reason we decided to offer the standard size battery to reduce the costs for anglers that don't travel so far/regularly with their barrow.
Q. How powerful is the motor?
A. We use a 24V, 350W hub motor. The motor is driven through a planetary gearbox with a 3:1 reduction. This gives it a greater torque to power up the hills or through the mud.
Q. Can I push it if it stops working?
A. Yes, the geared motor is less free-wheeling than the standard wheel, however it's very easy to push without the barrow driving. There is no clutch to operate, just push it as if it was a normal wheel.
Q. Can I still dismantle my barrow to fit in the car?
A. Yes, the kit has a connector for the throttle which allows you to remove the handles as normal. There is also a connector for the wheel, so this also slips off just like the standard wheel.
Q. Will it fit my barrow?
A. We currently offer kits for the most common barrow types, we are adding more models all the time. Chances are that if your barrow is not currently listed, we can offer a custom kit for you. We have an online form where you can submit the measurements of the relevant components which allows us to taylor make a kit to suit. Click here to visit the form
Q. Do I need to purchase anything else for the kit to work?
A. No, the kit is complete with everything you need. The controller and battery will be placed in your main barrow bag, everything else mounts to the frame. You may wish to opt for the pannier bag to keep the battery and controller in, or the smaller battery bag to protect them in your barrow bag. We also offer some accessories to enhance the functionality of the kit, but these are not required for just energising your barrow.
Q. Do you offer fitting?
A. Currently we offer the kit as a self-fit option, it is very easy to do and takes approx 15 minutes. No drilling or altering of your barrow is required. Full instructions are included in the user manual.
Q. I'm totally hopeless with a spanner, who can help me fit this?
A. We're currently working with local angling retailers and hope to setup a fitting service soon. More details will be available when this is setup. In the meantime, if you can tie a knotless knot, you're more than qualified to fit this kit!
Q. What warranty do you offer with this kit?
A. We offer 1 year warranty on all parts. The lifespan of the battery will very much depend on how it's looked after. Accidental damage of parts due to poor fitting are not covered (pinched cables etc.)
Q. Who are Global Angling Products, I've never heard of you?
A. We are a small UK based company that has been trading since 2012. We specialise in the manufacture of niche items of fishing tackle that are otherwise unavailable, or not of a sufficient standard for the discerning angler. Every item we sell is either something that we have desired and been unable to source, or has been requested by our customers. We have a small workshop on the south coast, we assemble everything here in the UK using locally sourced parts and machining wherever possible.
