What we say...
What we like
Let’s start with the brilliant price. We’re already fans of the Stowamatic GT electric trolley and the Continental push trolley is further evidence that you don’t always have to break the bank to get a decent product. It is pretty sturdy and the air-filled wheels offer great stability over rough terrain. You also get a neat mesh pouch, storage compartment and umbrella holder as standard.
What we don’t like
It is not the easiest to fold and unfold and at times we were left wishing we had a third hand just to make the job a little simpler. It also doesn’t fold up all that neatly and therefore takes up a lot more space in a car boot than some of the other trolleys we looked at. We don’t want to be too harsh on the Continental because we think it is great value but if ease of folding and storage is high on your list of priorities then you’ll have to spend a bit more cash.

The panel were impressed with the lightweight nature of the Stowamatic Continental Aluminium and what you get for your money is impressive.
However, the trolley failed to impress on ease of folding and unfolding - one tester suggested that at one point he could have done with three hands to open and close it.
The testers were also disappointed that it didn't fold up a little smaller and have a
catch to stop it opening when lifted. That said it was the cheapest on test and wasn't outclassed.
