Hi Willie, the quadcrate has proved itself to be indispensable over the last year from putting out tups to taking in ewes. I have put it to so many uses and can’t now believe how I managed without one. It is in daily use.
The Allingham Quadcrate is a great addition to the farm and it is so versatile. As the weather has been so bad for the past months and the land so wet, the quad and crate on the back is the best option and is so handy. The dog happily jumps into the crate and the holder at the front means that I can carry an extra 2 feed tubs for the sheep in addition to the 2 on the back. The fact the crate is so light means it doesn’t affect the quads performance in any way.
Had our quadcrate for a coupe of years but it’s really only now, that we have more animals, I am realising just how useful it is. Great, flexible bit of kit and at a reasonable price. Great service too. Highly recommend it.
Got a QuadCrate for Christmas and it’s a multi purpose tool around the yard. It is used multiple times every day and it is a life changer. The hardship that it has cut out already is unbelievable. It carries everything from buckets of mineral licks to meal troughs. I would encourage everyone to look at purchasing one as it so handy and affordable. Also a very nice lad!
Some of the best customer service I have ever received and all round nice fella . The costume box that was made for me was absolutely perfect size and is great for it intended use. The racks have made it so much easy feed the cows and keep on top of the pest. You would be silly not to have one or many of these in life.
Its took me 18 months to get around to write this review so i have it well tested.with out shadow of a doubt the best farm purchase ive made in year’s, its an every day working tool,which makes my quad in constant use everyday mostly because of quadcrate,thanks again willie for a great invention.its a tool for life!
WHAT A TOOL! SUPER PIECE OF KIT! The post holder package has made such a difference to our work at William Moore Fencing Contractors.
So easy to load and lay out Fencing materials. It is really effective, robust and utilises our quad to the MAX. The Tool box is great at keeping things together in long grass, don’t loose stuff now!

Bought the quad crate post holder kit about a month ago, well built bit of kit and does exactly what it says! Handy for drums as well,means you get far more use the quad and leaves the job a good bit easier!
The quadcrate lambing package was an amazing piece of kit for us as we do all our lambing outdoors and sometimes need to bring in ewes and lambs from outdoor pens. It was really easy to use and much less stressful for sheep and shepherds! Previous lambings we have had a quad towing a small 6ft trailer.The quadcrate is less stressful on the ewes as they aren’t being bounced around in the trailer, it is more fuel efficient and doesn’t mark on soft ground. It is time saving because you could keep it on the quad and weren’t going backwards and forwards to get the trailer. They could park the crate next to the outdoor pen put the lambs in the crate, the ewe hopped straight in and then the lambs go in the lambbox for easy transport back to the building with the same procedure in reverse and no struggling with the sheep at either end – brilliant! The lamb box was great because it was big enough for all the equipment needed during the day and to put in a couple of decent sized lambs. Also without the cage on the back we could easily transport pens out to and around the lambing fields.
All in all a really good purchase.

After Purchasing the quadcrate fencing package it has made fencing much lighter work, we have used it on some very rough terrain on Dartmoor, It allows you not only to carry your tools but you can also carry fencing materials as well.
With the toolbox on the front that keeps the smaller tools from disappearing when travelling across the rough terrain to get to the fence line. Also the netting and barb wire unroller on the back is well designed and works perfect. This package not only speeds up the erecting of fences it makes light work of it as well. See some of my photos below.

We are delighted with the new design On the Allingham quad crate,it has been very useful for a lot of different farm tasks especially as We have been doing a lot of fencing over the past few weeks and We have been using it every day.We used to pull a small trailer behind the bike which was far too dangerous on hilly ground.We are more than pleased with the quad crate and the new design and won’t be returning to towing a trailer behind the quad again.It is excellent value for money and We are very impressed with the after sales service. It’s brilliant that this unique product has been invented in Ireland, and We wish William and His Company continued success into the future…

Purchased a lambing and fencing combo package in 2014 and it was money well spent. The lambing package is not just for lambing time, I use it all the time for feeding , moving hay from croft to croft and shed to shed. I live on the Isle of Skye in the Highlands of Scotland where the ground is rough and boggy and very hilly, so buying this product was a risk but it was a risk worth taking. I can take the crate almost any where I need to go from taking fencing material out the hill and taken feed out and even taking sick sheep in off the hill. If you are sensible and load your quad evenly and know the ground where you are going and find the safest route, with common sense you will get there. Would recommend any off the products well worth the money. Time saving and better than a trailer. Well done to Willie for inventing it and wish him all the success as he deserves it.

Hi William here is our testimonial on the quad crate . The quadcrate has greatly advanced on what we can do with the quad around the farm. At lambing I didn’t imagine how great a help it could be. It even made the job less stressful for man and beast cheers

I got the quad crate 2 years ago and i would just like to write a testimonial.
From the day i received the quad crate supreme package 2 years ago, i have found it most useful and durable. In fact, it has completely changed what i can do with my 4*4. It is hard to imagine how we managed without it as i do not have a tractor for my system of Farming. It durability is a testament to the quality of the product as i have not had to replace one part to date. Its perfect for the type of small scale production that is the basis of my farming system.
Below is what Tommy received, the full Supreme package, they promise to help any man or woman carry out their everyday tasks with ease, especially a one man/woman band.

We at Crainnte Forestry are a private forestry company covering the Northwest of the country we use the QUADCRATE Butterfly a product of Allingham QUADCRATE which they modified & specially engineered to our requirements for transporting trees and fencing material in and out of forestry plantations. We highly recommend this product it is durable, reliable and once adjusted to our needs, very suitable. In having this QUADCRATE product, it has reduced our labour time with great efficiency, to carry out, day to day forestry operations. I can’t recommend this product enough.

Thanks for getting in touch yesterday.The quadcrate is great.I’m glad I got the front post holder .I can see it will be a real benefit when I need to take the cage off the back to just put it on the post holder.Also very clever design to turn cage upside down to make transport box.I’d be happy for you to give my details to the man from Glasgow .If he gets in touch I will only have good things to say about your products.
All the best
I purchased 2 Postholders with toolbox along with a quadcrate and wire unroller and are very satisfied with their performance so far. The quadcrate and wire unroller are great for me as i am a one man team and it gives me full control of unrolling sheep and barbed wire. I can get alot more done in the day with less stress. The postholders are great too, they give me, needed and safe carrying capability. Well Pleased.

I purchased the Lambing/Fencing package a month back and are finding it a great buy, the fencing equipment we are using at the moment is proving its worth and if its fit to stand the pressure here it will stand the pressure anywhere. I will look forward to using the Lambing equipment near to the Lambing season. Great job if you need me to speak to any close to sale customers, not a problem give them my number.

Here is another testimonial from a customer who bought a Lambing package last January
Great wee job. Don’t wanna think about lambing without it. Even puts manners on some of my mad lanarks. Well pleased.

Hi William, QUADCRATE going well. Worked really well through lambing time. Great product

Without doubt purchasing a Quadcrate package from Allingham Quadcrate has definitely been the best investment to date on our farm. We took on 7500 metres of sheep fencing and we estimate saving at least £2000 on labour. I have been more than impressed with the backup service and after sales support provided by the director Mr William Allingham We would have no hesitation in recommending Quadcrate products, to any business that uses a utility quad.
The fencing package is brilliant, making unrolling wire,carrying materials and tools so much easier, saving labour hours and money this product pays for itself very quickly.
Super matériel un personne gentil le pack à fait un très long voyage jusqu’an France et reçu sens être habimé personne de confiance merci
Translation:Super material a nice person the pack made a very long trip up to year France and received sense be habimé person of trust thank you.
Very handy for transporting meal and fence posts around the farm.
Have had the the quad crate a month now and it’s proving the most useful piece of kit I own. The toolbox is a permanent fixture so everything I need is always on tap. The front post holder has multiple uses and have even used it to tension barbed wire. The rear crate platform has proved useful from carrying hurdles to mineral buckets and the extra tow bar makes hitching on /off a trailer with so much ease. Taking rubbish away and keeping the place tidy is a bonus. The crate itself is loved by the dogs and they are happy to travel in it and much safer. Can’t fault the system and when funds allow I will add to it with the fencing package.
Built by a farmer to be used by farmers. Well designed, built and incredibly useful.
Willie is a gentleman to deal with and I have no hesitation recommended the Quadcrate or the man.
Well I just want to say I find the quad crate a mighty invention and I’m very happy to have purchased one last spring !! I just got it in time for the lambing and found it so useful for transporting sheep and 2 lambs from far away to bringing them home trew fields where I use to use a trailer but ground conditions are very wet and a trailer can be hard pulled !! I also find when I take the cage off the towing hitch on the crate is mighty where it’s placed very easy to hitch on and un-hitch objects compared to the main hitch on the quad in under the bike very awkward!! So over all I’m very happy with it and would highly recommend it to any farmer doing much quad work in spring !!!
Bought the Quadcrate (post holder & crate) at the start of the summer, very robust piece of equipment. Handy for carrying the dogs before gathering livestock to save there energy, I also found it very useful for a fencing job I recently completed.
I have only realised since using the quadcrate how little utilisation I was getting from my quad before the purchase. Great product…. a must have around the farm.
I purchased a post holder kit in the spring time when I bought my quad.
Because as handy as quads are it is difficult to carry stuff on them such as buckets of meal ,chainsaws petrol , fencing equipment etc.
I think the Allingham products are extremely well engineered look well and good value for money, you wouldn’t even try making it yourself.
Have my quadcrate a year now I find it a great help around the farm especially wind time when feeding stock out carrying hay and meal around the fields very handy, great job to get the turf home to,!!
Have been using the Allingham Quadcrate for near on a year now and it has been a life changer. No longer do I have to bother strapping sheep gear, fencing equipment, feeding etc on to rack of bike, it all goes in the crate. I would highly recommend this to anyone who works with sheep, on hill or flat ground. My stress levels at lambing time alone have been lowered all thanks to this clever invention! The Crate is Great!
