Cheers for that. I prefer solid tyres. I've only heard good things about the MAP you've surprised me about the welds

I’ve had one for 2 years and never had any welds go yet, only thing I will say is they not the best if your very tall. I’m 6ft and it’s managable but not the best, for anyone taller I can imagine it being a struggle. I was told before that there’s someone on eBay that sells extensions for them

Looks a good bit of kit. I'll see if I can get a look at one Not a very professional write up though. According to the blurb the solid tyres help avoid punchers lol. I'll have to let AJ know!
Made me smile when I saw it too. I wonder how many punc(h)tures he has come across outside the pub. :)

I have the MAP and it is a good bit of kit. Looking at the Matrix it looks like the same basic chassis with a few tweaks.

Where the handle slots into the trolley was a weak spot but they have strengthened it with a sleeve. I also turn the handle upside down so the hand grips are verticle rather than horizontal, makes it a bit easier to push. Well happy with mine.

Currently have one, had to have a weld repair, I turned the handle frame over so the handles are upright so easier to push as I am tall

In fact it wasn't a weld that went, but it needed welding to repair it. It was one of the front wheel carriers.

Never thought of turning the handle round to point upwards, will give it a try at the weekend 👍
