Here's a Hazet style assistant tool caddy made by another company. I have seen and owned a few of these Hazet copies Here's one I found today at a local swap meet. It looks like new. It has the rubber bumpers and the tray dividers and the book rack. 2 wheels swivel and lock. This Assistant collapses and can be put it the trunk for easy transportation. No rust or damage anywhere.

Does anyone know anything about these? Why all blue? What year/s were they built?

I've only found 1 other on this thread, the 2nd one in Wout's line-up:

Haha. Of course it's a post-65. Sorry, had a brain fart.

This one may have been repainted, but it doesn't look like it, and the colour match is spot on. I'll have a closer look for signs of respray.

Pretty much ALL formal houses in South Africa are walled and gated unless they're in gated estates. The whole country's a bad neighbourhood. Crying or Very sad

To the Hazet experts: is there any way to accurately date a Hazet Assistent?

I know the logo changed in 1965 and at some stage after German reunification, "Made in W Germany" changed to "Made in Germany".

When were Continetal tyres discontinued?
When did the top tray change to black from grey/silver?
When was the stool discontinued?
When did the pressed Hazet logo change to the stuck-on plastic version?

Any other changes that might assist in dating these?

My latest Assistent, above, has post-1965 logo, Continental tyres and has the hole for storing the stool. Any ideas how old it is?

My other Assistent has a black top tray and Made in Germany, so probably from the 1990s, yes?

Have one stool at home, will give it a try in a few days to reproduce one. It's a lot smaller than I imagined...

To answer this set of question for 1964 & older from my experience;

All early tops are Painted Gray with a crinkle coat type paint. There is the typical curved/arched top & the very early flat top. There is also the first generation of the flat top with a lock in the side where the rubber goes. Those I would guess are 1954-55 only. The flat top without the lock is most likely 1956-59.

The rubber for the flat top tray carts has this style rubber;

This is the rubber for arched type top tray carts;

Next there is a progression of the vertical tube supports on the middle trays.
Oldest style, 1954-1956?;

second style, 1957-59;
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Third style, this may have only been for the accessory tray to change a 161 into a 162 after the fact. 1957-59?;
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Fourth style, 1960-64? This is usually with the arched top tray.;
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Flat top tray carts also usually have this style vertical pole support in the bottom tub;
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

There is also 2 types of labeling tags. The very early carts (1954-1956) have small tags on the middle trays;
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Still during the flat top cart era the tag became larger & moved to the front of the bottom tub. 1957 & newer?;
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Even the caster wheels show some differences during the years. The first generation had no lock on the caster wheels. (1954-55);
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Next one caster wheel received a plain lock band. (1956-57)?;
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Then the one caster wheel received an arm on the side to make it easier to reach. (1958-1968)?;
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Last thing I will note in this posting is the logo on the bottom tub. It started out as a stamped piece of metal that is spot welded to the bottom tub before it was ever painted. (1954-1963)?
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Then Hazet went to stamping their logo directly into the bottom tub. This also continued into the earliest big "A" carts until Hazet went back to a separate metal logo that was attached with double sided tape & then on to the plastic Hazet logo.

I have noticed more differences in the carts I have owned but am not sure of the chronology. The above list of changes I am pretty confident of the timeline I have listed as being 80-90% accurate. Please correct me if anyone feels I am wrong.
