Jigger Class

Jigger - History

Jiggers - To FDSRS

We own three Jiggers and two have been overhauled for open day use and one will be used as a trailer.

WW 7419, Motor Trolley WW 7419
a four man trolley fitted with a 13hp motor with 3 speed + reverse gearbox, electric start and 4 wheel drive. An alternator has also been fitted for lights and battery charging. This trolley was used as a trailer for WW 7674 until it was motorized last year. It also has a trolley bell.
WW 7674, Motor Trolley WW 7674
a four man trolley, our original motorized one - the only one we had with a motor - a 10 hp Tecumseh with 3 speed and Rev gearbox and electric starter. It has been known, with its trailer, to carry 12+ adults.
WW 7493, Motor Trolley WW 7493
another four man trolley originally in poor condition but has had a lot of woodwork replaced, tidied up and painted for use as a trailer between the other two. It is currently undergoing trials.
WW 7633
an aluminum framed two man trolley made up from a pile of parts. It still needs brake parts making and lights fitting to be made useable. It has a 5hp Honda motor with a four speed gearbox.
Controls Here you can see the simple but effective controls of WW7674, and the seatbelts for added security when giving kids a ride in the yard.
