The D36 system is a heavier duty version of the Octbox D25. The thicker 36mm diameter legs give much more stability when the box is raised to heights over 2ft (60cm) than the D25. When used with accessories such as the D36 outrigger it is possible to place the front end up to 6ft (180cm) and the rear up to 3ft (90cm). 25mm extendable posts are fitted into each leg allowing all D25 accessories to also fit this system with the added advantage their height can be raised higher than the length of the leg. This allows the angler to refine his setup even more.
Configuration It is possible to configure your D36 Seat Box to meet exactly what you need by selecting the numerous options in the drop down menus. Information on each option is as follows
Drawer Configuration – Select no drawers or two drawer or three dawer Configuration. Additional drawer modules can be added as an additional accessory
SEAT BOX OPTION – RIVER Configured for anglers that fish mainly venues with difficult uneven banks. The footplate legs extend up to 3ft (90cm).
COMMERCIAL (Com) Configured for anglers that fish mainly venues with fairly level banks. The footplate legs extend up to 1ft 8″( 55cm).
Baitwaiter Accessory Pack – Available with or without a baitwaiter.
Keepnet Adaptor Set – 3 x QF adaptors to fit to keepnets with one QF stud fixed to the front centre of the footplate and two adjustable adaptors fitted to the extending adaptor bar
Footplate with Extending Adaptor Bar – Ultra strong and light this bar can be used in a number of different ways. The distance from the footplate legs is variable and at full extension acts as an addiutional load area when in barrow mode as well as a rock solid support for a bump / spray bar. It can support even the heaviest poles in excess of 18m with only 5mm of movement. Supporting long poles upto 50cm further out that conventional pole support systems reduces the pressure on the elbow by around 30% and makes controlling long poles in gusty conditions much easier. The underside of the footplate has been fitted with guide blocks that ensure the footplate extends smoothly and stops in the correct position for the spring loaded fixing bolts to engage.
Height Adjustable Frame – The drawer setup can be moved up and down to achieve the perfect seating position before being locked inplace by four stainless steel headless allen key bolts using the allen key. The frame also locks the middle in rear legs in conjunction with the main platform ensuring there is not a single mm of lateral movment on the heavy duty 36mm legs. The rear of the frame has two 25mm posts that can be used to dock the baitwaiter or fix accessories such as a brolley or topkit set.
Leg Systems – The D36 is designed to replace the need for a platform and has been proven to be more stable than any platform due to the legs being fixed in two points with powerful adaptors that can each individually take 285kg without slipping. This combined with leg systems that can be fitted to the front that can go in excess of 6ft and legs for the rear that go to 90cm with options for mud or high grip allow this system to get you setup in the most effective manner possible. In certain circumstances this can be a massive advantage and the main reason for choosing the heavier duty D36 over the lighter D25.
Weight – The D36 with Baitwaiter system removed weighs 17.5kg which is still lighter than most other systems on the market supplied by the top ten brands.
Other accessories that you may wish to consider for the D36 is the Outrigger system which converts the system into a heavy duty incredibly stable platform with leg systems that can extend well over 6ft.
