Another vital tool for on-location work

Chuck Vosburgh - Tuesday, May 08, 2012

If you've ever done a photo-shoot on-location you know that moving your equipment around is one of the hardest parts of the project. After many different failed solutions, here's what I have been using for the past few years and it works perfectly for me. It's designed for another type of creative professional that has the same needs we do in regard to moving lots of heavy equipment - musicians.

The thing I like best about it is that it folds down very small, can open up very large and can carry a lot of weight. It's like the swiss army knife of carts. Here's what the manufacturer has to say about it:

The Rock N Roller Multi-Cart 8-in-1 R6 Mini Equipment Transporter Cart makes getting your audio equipment in and out of gigs a breeze! We all know that load-ins and load-outs can be the worst part of a gig. Either you're sweating before you play or dreading the number of trips you'll be making after the gig through narrow corridors, cellars, and staircases, or over the length of several football fields. 
The Rock N Roller cart changes all that with its ability to instantly transform into any of 8 helpful configurations. Carry up to 500 lb. on the Rock N Roller R6 equipment cart's 2-rail frameextendable from 28" to 42-1/2"and 24" (front/rear) foldable sides. Weighing only 25 lb., the R6 equipment transporting cart carries huge loads but folds flat to fit even in the trunk of a compact car. 
Rock N Roller R6 Multi-Cart configurations: Storage-Transport, Short Furniture Dolly, Short Platform Cart, Short Hi-Stacker, Long Hi-Stacker, Long Platform Cart, Long Furniture Dolly, And 2-Wheel Handtruck. 
Applications for the R6 Equipment Transporter: Guitar/bass equipment, small drums, small PA's, DJ, photo/video, general use 

Never sweat before a gig againor hurt yourself trying to carry more gear than you should to save trips! Make load-ins a breeze and order an R6 multi-cart today!

This one is the medium-sized one. There's also a larger off-road version with larger wheels and a smaller one. I have the large and medium ones and they suit me just fine. I got mine here at Guitar Center.
