Multi-Cart is widely regarded as the go-to brand for anyone who needs to "take it on the road" safely and dependably. From the powder-coat finish to the quality hubs, wheels and the non-skid bed, every element of the design is aimed at the expeditious transport of your delicate gear, even in less than optimal environments.

The patented design instantly telescopes and transforms into any of 8 configurations to fit any equipment size or shape, enabling quick and ergonomic movement of huge amounts of gear and supplies with a small storage footprint.

The Multi-Cart 8-in-1 Equipment Transporter - R12NF All-Terrain has full-profile, hard rubber 10" rear wheels and 8 " front wheels for easy transport over rough terrain while avoiding down-time due to punctured tubes. It has a 500 lb load capacity.

No-Flat solid rubber wheels maintain the same high-profile road-gripping surface of the original pneumatic wheels but without the threat of punctures.
Equipped with patent-pending G-Force wheels and casters which are strong, lightweight and ride super quietly. The concentric hole design is structurally strong yet allows the casters to be lighter weight.
Glossy textured finish resists equipment slippage better than smooth finishes and is super tough.
Frame telescopes to stack loads high.
Non-skid frame bed surface resists load slippage.
Spring-loaded wing bolts won't vibrate out.
Stair skids ease hauling up steep stairs.

      I am a professional sound mixer who needed a cart to haul some cases around on and give me a area to work from. So I bought this cart and the Shelf and Decklid. The cart is well built and BH is the only place that gives you the run flat tires for same price as normal air filled tires. So that is why I bought the cart from BH. The only cons to the cart are the Shelf and Deck Lid which are extra and only needed if you plan on using the cart to work from. The bolts that hold the shelf to the frame aren't long enough so I had to buy some longer bolts for $5.00 at a hardware store which wasn't a big deal. The deck mounting blocks were to close to the edge of the cart making it hard to secure it so it was easy to fix just took a wood chisel and trimmed a inch off each of the wood mounting blocks.
      Overall I love the cart and still think the shelf and deck lid are a good buy you just need to work on them a little bit like most gear I own

      I'm a video pro who had high hopes for this item. Although the concept is good, I think the execution and quality control are abysmal.

      First, it's heavier than sin. In and out of your vehicle, especially with the decks attached, is a real effort.

      Second, the design is nowhere near as good as I was led to believe. The way the handles fold up and into those little tab slots by bending them seems so "garage" to me. And the tabs barely stop the handles from coming back out. The handles are also loose when raised... they jiggle back and forth when pushing or pulling the cart so it all feels loose and poorly executed. I had to tape metal washers onto the handles to reduce the play! And why square steel tubing? Square tubing is heavier and less efficient than round tubing.

      Then, the holes for attaching the optional decks are too small (or the bolts are too big). You have to screw the bolts into the holes and THEN put on the wingnuts! Which brings up another point... why on earth were the decks, and how they expand and attach to the cart, designed the way they are? They are a PAIN to attach! It seems to me by the time I get this cart fully put together (with decks) and ready to roll someone else with a standard cart will have made 2 or 3 trips and gotten everything transported.

      And that bottom deck with the clunky wooden tabs, painted plywood, and stapled carpeting is SO "garage".

      The no flat wheels are way too hard to be thought of as all-terrain. I went to go over an empty garden hose and the whole thing skidded to a stop against the smaller casters. A GARDEN HOSE! I was hoping that they would have more give.

      All in all, this design might be great in the smaller sizes but as far as this large model, it just doesn't scale up. A real bummer.

          Comments about MultiCart 8-in-1 Equipment Transporters - R12NF All-Terrain:

          In a nutshell: if you need to work a few more jobs to save up for a Film Tools cart or a Magliner Jr., do it. This cart is tedious to assemble with the deck and shelf add-ons. It uses wing nuts that you will lose. The whole thing feels a little rickety, too (compared to the tank-like feeling of a Magliner). I have the luxury of being able to keep mine assembled since I have a van and a basement with plenty of room. But if I had to break this down and set it up for every job, the time lost would quickly make it not worth the savings.

          Like other reviews have said, you may need to drill out the holes for the cotter pin in the wheel hub. I have a drill and bits, so no worries here, but I do appreciate when things are well engineered. This is a great idea, but not great engineering. I's nice to have a cart that can fold up. If some great engineers put their mind to it we could have a great cart that would fold up nicely, which brings me to my point...those carts would be crazy expensive and this cart is not. I figure if I get a few good years of use, then it pays for itself. I'M GETTING OLDER NOW, 38, AND I NEED THINGS IN BOLD PRINT AND ON WHEELS. This cart makes getting things on wheels easier but can't do anything about the font size on my phone.
          Regarding details of the cart I received: the drilled holes didn't line up, the logo stickers peeled off by themselves, the top deck for the cart is made of cheap wood and splinters on the bottom, the paint job is decent, the wheels have no ball bearings but is a basic wheel held on with a cotter pin that you need to have pliers to bend into place.
          If you are not handy, you may want to elicit the help of a handy friend.

          All in all a great cart for the price.

            It carries everything, and collapses down to a smaller size to fit in van. I use it on every job and fly with it all the time. Winter snow, mud, grass...no problem.
            I would like to see them incorporate a lock in the collapsed position for travel (airlines). I use a velcro strap with zip ties now. The new wheels (no-air) work better then the pneumatic ones.

                This cart is a workhorse. It's loaded with gear and rolled to location without a thought. The big wheels roll smoothly and effectively over all surfaces. The compact design makes more room in the vehicle for more gear. The adjustable size accommodates large shoots with all the gear, to smaller shoots with just the basics. This unit makes every production easier and less stressful. The larger wheels make all the difference. Don't even think of getting the smaller wheels. It's worth the minimal extra price.

                    Bought this to transport music gear for our guitar-flute duo. Used it once for a gig and worked great. Assembly of the wheels took a few minutes, otherwise, comes ready to roll. It would come in handy for location shoots too. I'm sure they large front wheels will pay dividends over models with smaller ones. B&H price was significantly lower than others at the time I bought it.

                        This is a tough, no frills cart that so far, has met my expectations completely. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that the "fold up" portions are attached wrong for use as a two wheeled dolly. You have to put both "sides" up to get the one "side" up needed for the two wheel use. The "wire" that is used to put up the "sides" could also be a little better designed. Otherwise, this thing is amazing! Love how compact it is. Love that it can easily become longer if needed. Even with the drawbacks, for the price, I will buy again!

                          I'm shooting a long series of interviews in front of a portable green screen. My green screen lights, round rollup green screen, light stands, camera, MacBook Pro & GRaid hard drive for footage archiving (hauled in Portabrace backpack), field monitor/TV, etc, require more hauling space than my standard video setup (for which I use a small upright cart). I have a small car as well, so I don't have a bunch of extra room for all my greenscreen video gear. I have a larger cosco lay-flat cart, but it's too big to fit in my car with all my other green screen gear. But at its half length / carrying configuration, this R12 carts fits easily sitting up on one end, on the floorboards of the front passenger seat of my compact car, allowing me to put all my other gear in the trunk and back seat. Stretched to full length, the cart holds my large Betacam-sized portabrace case and a Steadicam softcase laying flat on the bottom rails of the cart, while I can bungee cord other gear up on top of the lower lay-flat cases. I can also hang my tripod (by the pan stick) on one of the two top rails of the cart --- the one opposite the "steering wheels" top tube. Before I found this cart, I was making Two trips from the car in to my filming location, because my littler upright cart (a Concorde IV, I think) obviously couldn't safely handle all of the green screen equipment. My coworker came to me when one of the tires went flat on one of my other carts she was using, and this R12 has Can't-go-flat tires, which is another advantage. This cart is great for my bigger loads! I actually ordered a second one from B&H already, in case the one I'm using now totally breaks down, but I hope it doesn't/and don't think it will in the nearterm.

                            As with all my purchases I researched the heck out of carts before I bought one and the first cart I got was a Magliner knockoff and it went straight back. This was my second choice and should've been my first. This thing is really great it's light enough to throw on top of equipment and big enough to haul everything I need. I will be ordering the floor boards for this as well. If you're thinking about buying this cart just add it to your cart there is nothing else like it for the money!

                              The R12NF is a great little cart. Although I've only used it once it was quite handy. It was purchased to haul camera and lighting equipment on-location. I'm able to stack two Pelican 1610s, sandbags, folded light stands, collapsible 6x8 backgrounds and more onboard and make one trip from vehicle to my set up area. No Flat tires = carefree service.

                              The upright handles seem a little flimsy but a beefier system would increase weight and cost. Don't abuse the cart and it will likely last a long time.

                              There are better carets out there, but they cost a LOT more. 6-10X more, in fact. This cart does the job, is solid, can carry a lot of gear, gets reasonably small for packing into the car, and doesn't cost too much. It also has a good selection of accessories to kit it out.

                              It requires a little fiddling with wing nuts, etc, to set it up at the start of the day, but that takes about 5 minutes and you're good to go for the day. Now, if you're in and out of the vehicle and have to set it up and break it down 4 or 5 times a day, this might not be right for you. The pricier carts have some ingenious latches that make setup quicker.

                                    Best thing about this cart is the big wheels on BOTH ends. No more casters getting caught in a gap/hole with a HEAVY load. If you have to transport over rough ground or cross a gap such as between a train platform and coach, the big wheels are worth the price. Also like that the length can be adjusted. A few mounting points for bungee cords would be helpful.

                                      This heavy-duty cart is well designed and versatile. I have purchased several different versions of the MultiCart, and this is the best yet. The non-pnumatic tires are a significant improvement as they never need inflating. Highly recommended!

                                        When I go on location, I take a lot of stuff. I'd been using little carts like the Fedex guys use, but this is so easy and can navigate across NYC streets with ease!

                                        I am an event photographer and needed something durable but compact to transport my gear. The R12 does a great job..

                                        I use it to carry my gear around. It packs fairly small and can expand to carry quite a bit of stuff.It is a bit on the heavy side though.
