I generally hate creapers, but if I had that, I might use it.

Didn't they send one of those to Mars?

Say wasn't that the chassis they used in the Hummer H2 soap box derby commercial? I could have swore in the beginning the kid started the body on it...... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

I need a creeper, but I doubt I could find a cheap one that would hold my ass

Of course it's at the point where I can just sit under the truck....

I picked it up when I seen it on the Matco truck today.
It was on sale for $180. Regular price is $252.
Snap On has them too for about the same price.
I didn't buy it for work, most rigs are to low to get under with a low profile creeper let alone that sucker.
I just got sick of laying in the wet gravel and mud working on stuff at home.
As soon as I seen it I had to have it, didn't care what it cost.
I will have to keep it locked up though, as soon as the boys see it it won't be long till they are treating it like a go-cart. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

I had to try it out as soon as I got home.
What's that one event called? Luge (sp)
I tried difefrent air pressures till it rolled good on the 3/4 gravel, was just kinda pushing myself around the lot and gave a big push and shot down the driveway backwards.
My drive way is about 30 yds long and kinda steep, pitch black and haulin ass backwards down the driveway. I bailed off right before I hit the HWY and it kept on going till it went in the ditch on the other side.
I was laughin so bad I nearly pissed myself.
Of course I went and did it again.
Anyway that was a good buy, I recomend one if you work outside. It doesn't do to well in the mud though, not enough wheel speed. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
It does sit pretty high though, I have a snap on creeper with that frame style but with 3" wheels and I thought it was big. But it rolled under the K5 no sweat. 6"x2" tires, takes 50psi, but I aired down to 35 for the gravel. LMAO
If they weren't so big I would get one for work. pretty cool to be able to roll over air hoses, screwdrivers, little pebbles that stop a regular creeper wheel, I ramped one of the clutch disks from the rig I was working on.
But the shop floor at work is polished concrete so a creeper is not realy needed unless you have a big friggin mess going on and don't feel like rolling around in oil and fuel.
Today was cool tool day, wanna know what else I got?
4 vendors show up at the shop. Snap-On, Cornwell, Mac and Matco.
It never failes I get em all paid off and wind up getting sucked in again. LOL

Exactly why I could never wrench for a living. You're forever in debt to your tool guys even if you don't want to.

I agree. As soon as the SnapOn/Matco/Cornwell dude tells me I can open a credit account, I'd be all over that like Oprah on a ham sandwich...

I wish they would have sent that to mars instead of that POS that broke down! Probably would have been a better investment! At least the aliens might get some use out of the creeper!

Hell, we've got an open account through work. Walk out to the truck, pick what you want, give your employee number, and away you go /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Then it's payrole deducted from your direct deposit at $80 a month, no intrest, no hastle of going to pay if the weathers bad or you're busy /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif I've bought more tools in the past three years than I had when I started.

Thats awsome /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I bet it rolls over bolts and washer with ease, unlike the ones with the disc or caster rollers that blow.
