You can forget the Supacheap trolleys they bend the bottom plate and the rims are only pressed coke cans. You need a real bag trolley with the steel wheels probably only obtainable at a clearing sale or the dump. Sorry I meant refuse transfer station.

Bolt on inflatable wheels, let the air out when positioned, and pump up when you need to move ?

I saw a photograph of a Petter (maybe) diesel engine and a belt drive alternator some time ago. They were bolted to a steel plate and the plate was attached to a frame by what looked like Land Rover engine mounts
