    The sweat-free, back-saving solution for roadie-less musicians and DJs!

    The Multi-Cart Rock N Roller 8-in-1 R8 Mid 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. The Rock N Roller R8 audio equipment cart boasts 8" x 2-1/2" pneumatic wheels that absorb shock to delicate equipment and smoothly roll over rough surfaces such as dirt, grass, or concrete. The R8 Mid cart's load capacity is 500 lbs or 32 cu. ft. and it weights just 29 lbs.

    Rock N Roller R8 Mid 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.

    Great for hauling stuff at your gigs

    By TA Man

    from Columbia, MD

    Comments about Rock N Roller Multi-Cart 8-in-1 R8 Mid Equipment Transporter Cart:

    Almost perfect cart. Two laws I found, front wheels are no to 100% ... 1)you'll want to tighten with a wrench every couple of gigs to make sure they're in place. 2) If you want to haul stuff up curnbs and one-step doors ... the slider is great but you gotta get the front end up .. I bought a 5 ft. rope at Home Depot and use that to lift the cart from the top and pull over the step. Much easier than stooping down and trying to lift!

    Great cart, a few flaws

    By DJ Dustin

    from Hibbing, MN

    Comments about Rock N Roller Multi-Cart 8-in-1 R8 Mid Equipment Transporter Cart:

    The Rock n Roller R8 has a lot of great features, but it has a few flaws. When I went to put on the front casters, I was surprised to find that one of the bolts had been double threaded...it had 2 starting points. I ended up re-threading the bolt and using a different nut because it would have been impossible to put the included nut on the double threaded bolt. So check that if you buy this cart. I would recommend it even though I had trouble because it's still a good cart once you get it together!

    I recommend

    Comments about Rock N Roller Multi-Cart 8-in-1 R8 Mid Equipment Transporter Cart:

    You can carry a five piece drumset with all the hardware at once. It is easy to change configurations. It is sometimes difficult to give direction when it is fully loaded, but I still recommend this cart. It is a little bit heavy, but to be able to carry 500 lbs, it has to be. I checked some other carts at home improvement stores, they were cheaper, but also harder to use, heavier and cruder.

    Awesome Gear Mover!

    Comments about Rock N Roller Multi-Cart 8-in-1 R8 Mid Equipment Transporter Cart:

    Bought an RocknRoller R8 about 2 months ago. Awesome!! I'm a keyboard player and this ingenious cart moves everything in one load. It also changes into about 8 configurations so long keyboards can hang off the back or shorten for small items. It also folds up really fast and small to fit in my car. I can now set up and break down about 3 times as fast as before. My only complaint is that the bass player keeps borrowing it.

    Front wheels stink

    By screami

    from New Jersey

    Comments about Rock N Roller Multi-Cart 8-in-1 R8 Mid Equipment Transporter Cart:

    Over the years I have owned 5 carts. The original ones were great however, the new ones have plastic rims on the wheels that fail and the welds on the front casters failed twice on me while on a gig. I did not exceed the weight ratings and this never happened on the original versions.
