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 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

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...
