The Roadless Wheelbarrow was a product built by Roadless Traction Ltd utilising there continuous track system. They were built for use in places like foundries were the track unit spread the load and allowed easier passage over uneven surfaces, as well as resilience to punctures from sharp metal filing on the floor. the alternative of cast iron wheels were very jarring to push due to lack of elasticity in the solid wheel when hitting obstructions.

The track units were also fitted to other small items of plant in place of wheels.
