Metsälehti Makasiini, a Finnish magazine about forests, wrote about the fleimio woodhopper in their newest number 3 (26.04.2018). The fleimio woodhopper was selected as an award which will be sent to one of the readers who gave his/hers opinion in the reader survey. The award will be elected.
The Metsälehti Makasiini wrote: “among all of you who answered before the 11th of May, we will conduct an election and will send one Finnish fleimio woodhopper logcart to the winner. The woodhopper suits well among other things to move firewood.” (kaikkien 11. toukokuuta mennessä vastanneiden kesken arvomme fleimion kotimaisen woodhopper-kärryn, joka sopii muun muassa klapien kuljettamiseen. Palkinnon arvo on noin 138 €)
Fleimio Woodhopper is a firewood cart for transporting logs. Product is meant for those, who feel carrying firewood logs as heavy or for those, whose distance from the woodshed to the fireplace or to the sauna is long.
Using fleimio woodhopper is easy:
1. pile the logs to the cart as in photo here above.
2. drive the cart by using your both hands to keep it in upright position.
3. in stairs – we recommend to pull it upwards.
It is agile to drive, because it has only one wheel. It is possible to be stored in horizontal or vertical position.
The fleimio logcart has only one wheel that makes it agile to drive outdoors where the yards and gardens are not always even: there are stones, roots and stumps. We recommend to use the fleimio logcart outdoors, because its wheel can bring dirt and stones that can harm the floor.
The fleimio woodhopper is an agile tool for moving and storing firewood. However, it can be used in a versatile manner for other things as well. The fleimio woodhopper is designed for outdoor use. Manufactured in Finland. Design by Mr Mika Hautamäki & fleimio. It is available in four colours: green, grey, black and red.
The fleimio woodhopper was exhibited at the Maison & Objet Paris in September 2017, in Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair in February 2018 and in Spring Fair (Kevätmessut) Helsinki April 2018.
