Style Name: R8RT
I bought this cart because I am a percussionist playing with a number of ensembles, and it's been a real pain (literally) to move all my equipment piecemeal. Just last night I used this cart for the first time, and it's absolutely priceless!

I had a fair amount of gear -- 3 snare drums (one 14x5", one 14x6.5", and one 14x10", all in hard cases), stands for all snares, an old Vic Firth stick box loaded completely full with mallets and accessories, a briefcase with timpani mallets, another stick bag, a bag with 8 cymbals, suspended cymbal stands, music folders & music, etc. I simply extended this cart to about 42" in length, tightened the locking screws, and loaded it from one end to the other and almost up to the top of the support-ends. And then I rolled it about 3 city blocks from where I could park to where I was to play. Then did the same in reverse on the way back -- amazingly easy and effective transport.

As you can tell from the graphic on this page, this cart folds into multiple positions for different moving jobs. What I'm most impressed by is how small it can fold down to to fit in the trunk of my car along with much of my gear. Probably the most ingenious feature is the ability to fold the two end rails completely flat -- one seats about 3/4" lower than the other, so they do not catch upon one another but both lie completely flat! The rails fold down with a simple pull of the coated-steel cable on each end. VERY simple to operate.

The wheels are incredibly sturdy (the front two casters even have brakes!) and appear to be fit for many years of heavy service. The rear wheels actually have inflatable tires to handle the heavy loads.

I really like this cart especially after adding my own decking and shelf...(see my photos) it is very sturdy and you can adjust the length to your needs, I use mine for location photo shoots where I need to take a substantial amount of equipment. I only use the length I need to take care of the equipment I usually take and that will fit easily into hotel elevators.

I made my own floor deck with a single piece of 1/2 plywood cut to the size with padded rubber walkway covering. I made it 24" wide and it is a slip-in slip-out setup... gravity and the load keep it in place. Do Not Buy the optional shelving from Rock and Roller. (read the reviews!) It us about 6" narrower and I think a waste of money. I bought it and then realized what a bad design it was and returned it. My self made decking only cost me about $18 and is wider and super easy in and out.

I also wanted and bought the optional shelf. This is also a really stupid design that is a total pain in a** to setup.(read the reviews) I wanted something simple, lightweight, easy to setup and tear down and pack-up. How they came up with their design I can't imagine because the cart is so practical, you would expect the accessories to be as well... but they are not. My "Simple Shelf" is all I want it to be. If I could weld I would not need their shelf kit at all, but I can't. I was able to use their support bars and by turning them 90 degrees and adding a horizontal support between each handle (12" threaded rod with a piece of copper pipe I had to cover the threads) I made a quick on, quick off top shelf... held totally in place by gravity. Having the shelf setup also really makes the cart feel and respond better as it eliminates the slack in the handles, and holds them solidly.

Style Name: R12RT
As a professional mobile DJ for over a decade, I've had a few different models of the Rock N Roller Multi Cart and this is the best one ever. It's the top of the line, and worth it.

Unlike the R10 and the R8, this one has large wheels both front and back. The advantage: you easily roll over any surface: gravel, dirt, grass, you name it. The R10 and R8 work well on paved surfaces but if you're transporting equipment in a variety of settings, there will be times you'll be rolling on gravel or dirt or grass.

And unlike the prior versions of the R12 (which had pneumatic wheels), you don't have to worry about filling up the tires with air (and you don't have the problem of the tires often deflating just enough to make it harder to push or pull the cart). The new version of the R12 has R-Trac wheels which never go flat on you, yet they give you the same smooth ride and ability to roll over any surface as the old pneumatic-wheel models.

Frankly, I've never used my Multi Cart in all the different configurations you can use it, I always use the Hi-Stacker configuration but I do like the option of using it in the short or longer configuration (longer lets you carry more stuff but shorter is useful if navigating through narrow hallways or sharp turns). And the way it folds makes it so much easier to store inside my van than your typical utility cart or platform truck.

In short, the Rock N Roller Multi Cart ROCKS (especially the new R12 with the R-Trac wheels).

The Rock n Roller R12 cart is the top of the line, and there are many accessories that can be added to make this cart do everything except scramble your eggs for breakfast. I have added the top shelf in case I need to use the cart as a projection table (I am a mobile DJ, and sometimes clients want me to set up an LED Projector & laptop to project their photos or home movies), and I have added the end extensions to hold my SKB cases for the Bose® L1 sound system (the end extensions allow me to strap the cases vertically to the cart). I even bought the yellow and black color-coordinated bungee cords to wrap everything up. In other words, I bought the whole nine yards when it comes to Rock n Roller carts.

Prior to getting this cart, I used a small folding platform truck that required three or sometimes four trips to get all my equipment into a venue. For under $150, it was a solution that worked very well for 25 years or so. However, I did have the occasional outdoor venue where it was tough to roll the cart over the grass and gravel, and I had the occasional venue with a fancy cobblestone lobby over which the small wheels would wobble and vibrate until my equipment nearly toppled off the small cart. The Rock n Roller cart removed this concern. The large wheels smooth out everything pretty well, so I no longer worry about uneven surfaces. This purchase was for the sole purpose of allowing me to take everything into a venue on a single trip. This is extremely important for some venues that have long, long, l-o-n-g distances between the unloading point and the setup area.
