My wife was kind enough to give me one for Christmas.  I have had one of the original dollies and haven't used it much as a portable contractor.  If I were to stay on one site for more than a day or so (very unusual for me) I would probably use the dollie more.

I wanted the Sysroll because although I will have to repurpose the interior of my trailer (long overdue anyway) the fact that it can be used as a hand truck and then when dropped back down as a dollie, was the best compromise of all.  Ultimately because of the transport space I have I can foresee the possibility of multiple units that can be strapped upright to a trailer wall for transport.

I have some very specific ideas for uses that may or may not include systainers, but are likely to integrate ideas shown here by others in other situations.

Right now it is backing in the sunlight in my office safely protecting all my rare or unusual systainers.

Does anyone know how much the sys roll weighs, as I have to arrange a courier to have one that I have bought picked up?

Thank you Tom. So that would be about 10 kg. I forgot to ask about the height of the sys roll?

Tried out my putting midi on the roll today, took it down three flights of stairs right after this pic. I love this thing! I wasn't sure about it before but after using it for a while I love it. It sits behind the passenger seat in my van with a good stack of systainers on it and doesn't go anywhere, I'm amazed as I thought for sure that I would have to strap it in so it didn't tip.

Thanks for the warning Alex.

The cart has been outside for two months and I have not noticed any rust.  But, I might have missed it so I will conduct a close examination later today.

The cart is still outside.  Right now, we are having an ice storm in Toronto and a few icicles have formed upon it.

Festool supplied the SysRoll for me to test.  So, in spite of the worry that some parts might not like to be left out in the snow and rain, I am going to leave it out all winter.

Just to let those who are interested know that my SysRoll is still outside and now it is under a whole lot of snow.

I have not had cause to use my SysRoll in the last couple of months and we have had a lot of snow in Toronto.  I will be digging it out and using it this weekend.

Frank,
I am a couple of miles south of your area. (about half as far south of you as you are south of your island) We have just had two small snows about 6" and 8" within the last several days. (It looks like you have a bit more where you are)

The 8" turned very soggy as the storm changed over to rain and sleet and we already have a row of icecicles about 6 ft long all along the eaves.  I have no gutters, but even if I did have, there would still be a lot of ice hanging down.  The ends of any icecicle will continue dripping as it continues to grow.  As the snow melts away, all of that dripping from above will grow into a solid mass of ice along the foundation.  Especially on the side of house that gets the most sun.  I am thinking that in a few more weeks, your SysRoll Cart will be enveloped in a solid mass of ice.  I know that if you can extract it at that stage, you only need to get it to a warmer location and the problem will be gone.

It will be at the stage where you need to break it out of the envelope of ice that I think it will get very interesting.

I wouldn't leave anything Festool outside. The cart is mostly plastic and aluminium, right, but it must have some iron parts too. Festool iron rusts like crazy.

I'm happy to be able to report that Alex was wrong when warning me about leaving the SysRoll out in the snow.  It spent most of this very long and snowy winter outside and emerged from the snow a couple of week ago undamaged.

I can find no rust or damage of any kind on my SysRoll.   [smile]

Hi everyone,

After several weeks of hard use, I find that I don't like the wheels on mine. The rear wheels are simply made of plastic and when you roll the cart in the street you have lots of noise and vibrations. Did anyone thought of changing the wheels on the sysroll ?
