German to English translations [PRO]
German term or phrase: Laufwagen
This is a component of a piece of children's play equipment called an 'Eingrabseilbahn'. It appears to be a stable metal stand and post from which a cable is attached to a pulley which enables children to swing from the chain. The chain has various items attached to it for the child to sit on - e.g Pendelsitz. The Laufwagen is 'aus Edelstahl mit Bremsen' but I'm not really sure how it fits in with the equipment which basically just involves the child swinging on a chain/rope in the air. The only translation I can find for Laufwagen is to do with devices that help old/ill people to walk - ie not relevant. Any thoughts?
