I've had one exactly the same for over 2yrs. It's absolutely fine with a 9.8 and OK with a 15 2-stroke (36kgs) but much heavier than that it gets a bit tippy. The latches at the bottom that stop it folding can bounce up on a bump when wheeling so I've put cable ties round mine to stop that risk.

I concur with fenlander. A bit tippy and I too have cable tied my latches to stop them unclipping.
I have a 52kg tohatsu 20 hp on mine.
After two years I noticed the bolt heads were eating into the wooden transom board. I wasn't confident that the wood wasn't going to give so I cut two 3mm metal plates to the same size as the wooden plate and sandwiched the board between the metal plates........... just to be sure it didn't split.
It's an alright little trolley but not great.

Under 20 b&q sack trolley, had my 15hp 2 stroke on it, you have to be a little conscious of its potential tippy nature but it does the job.

I have a sack truck here,but i wouldn`t want to start an engine on it.as you say its a bit tippy,the wheels need to be wider apart for more stability.
