Does a SYS-Roll 100 fit (backseat) of a normal car?
« on: May 12, 2019, 04:06 AM »
Hi All,

Breaking my back carrying my systainers to my car  [mad]

I'm doing rebuild of my house (so not a professional), I drive a normal car. Don't want to leave my precious "green" in the house (since im only there in the weekend). I live in the center of a big city (Prague), and parking place is not always in the front of the door. Carrying 4 systainers for 500 meters is, well not ... "my kind of fun". My arms fall off and the day didn't even started! Probably I'm a whimp  [eek]

Anyway, was thinking of a SYS-ROLL to transport it up to my car. Put them in the trunk, but what todo with with the cart [huh]? Anyone has experience, would the cart fit on the backseat (driving a Volvo S60)?

Thank you, Rog.

We have a similar problem when having to park away from a site entrance. I considered systainers, carts and barrows and trolleys from Festool and Makita etc. Then I was at Costco, and they had collapsible sack barrows for £17 so I bought a few fir the vans and workshop.

They fold away very small, and will carry good weight.
I will try and find a link.

I would add a plywood base to the cart to prevent the metal support from breaking the bottom Systainer. I have a couple of these carts and for this use one of my carts has a larger metal platform but it still stresses the Systainer if it overhangs the front of the cart.other than that this is a great way to move heavy Systainers for a reasonable cost. I use these carts frequently and my wife loves them for moving her junk as she has a bad back.

I agree with previous replies. I used to own a Sys-roll but got rid of it due to the hazzle of fitting it into the car.
Go for a foldable version like the ones suggested. Don't buy the cheapest you find since you usually get what you pay for. A lot of times you need to pull it up a few steps, up/down the curbside, over thresh holds etc. However, for those who frequently take the systainers up and down stairs, I can still recommend the sys-roll, where it's outstanding. But for just transporting them without too many obstacles, a foldable version will suffice. One drawback with them is that the systainers have a tendency to slide sideways if you're not careful. That's another good reason for adding a pice of plywood. I did mine 20mm larger than the footprint of a systainer, and then added one more layer of plywood which is only 10mm wide around the edge. This piece of plywood fits between the frame of the bottom plate on the cart and stays in place. It's not beautiful but it works. Someday I may make a more beautiful version where I mirror the bottom of a systainer using a router, so it's just a flat board.

You could use a small movers dolly. I bought one from harbor freight ( yeah I know) on sale for $9 bucks. I couldnt by the castors for that cheap. Just checked they have a 14" X 19.5 " right now for $12.99 and a 3 wheeled dolly that might work for $4.
If all ya want it for is loading your systainers on either one should work good and their cheap.

Then it would be a problem putting it in your car. If ya got a SUV it would be even easier .

The Sys dolly’s work well if there are no stairs involved.

I have a cart similar to what @Bob D. posted and it works well.  Folds flat and even rolls when folded.  If you have the need to roll over curbs or stairs, the Upcart is another option.

If there aren’t stairs, I’ve moved systainers in one of these before.

Mine is slightly different and came from Costco but same idea. Very stable and will hold 2 fairly high stacks easily.

Thanks all, good options and advice!

In Prague the roads are pretty crappy and at my house I have a few outdoor steps (3). So some bigger wheels would be a better option I guess.

Dropped the sys-roll, will be looking (am EU based) at a foldable "hand truck"  [tongue]

Forget about the Festool options, get a hand truck as suggested.

I have this one, RuXXac Business XL and it is one of the best out there, very sturdy and durable, with a big platform to safely support your systainers.

The wheels are bigger than on most carts and they are made of very durable rubber. I had one with solid wheels before and I got crazy from the rattling sound rolling over the sidewalk. It is more expensive than most, but you get what you pay for.
