Upgrading the Sys-Roll
« on: February 24, 2018, 02:33 AM »
Because I work mostly on rough building sites, I was not so happy with the rock hard wheels on the sys-roll. The systainers are bumping all around, and the slightest rock or piece of wood will stop the wheels completely.

The other day I put the sys-roll on a handtruck to move everything to another room in the building, and this was a huge improvement. So i've put rubber wheels, with air, on the sys-roll and it works great!
With very little work, replace the axel with a wider one, and nothing even has to be changed on the sys-roll itself. Like it's ment to be replaced.

Thought I'd share it with you guys.

Nice work! Are you able to provide a parts list so as to assist others who may want to adopt your great mod idea?

Great idea.  Adding larger wheels on the rear would cause the SYS-Roll to lean forward.  Has that caused any issues for you?

That's correct, sharp  ;D
At this point it's leaning a little bit forward. So I ordered bigger front wheels which have the same mounting points to I can replace them easily.
I will write down all the parts which I had to get to get the Sys-roll updated. Will do that shortly.

The off road Sys-Roll!   Especially nice since it is easy to do.   [thumbs up]

Current systainer to productivity ratio:  very high

The back table and legs are also interesting!  Can you show more details?
