Product Highlights
  • Lightweight
  • Rugged Steel
  • No Moveable Pins
  • Tubeless No-Flat Wheels

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.
Strong tube axles are 43% lighter than solid axles.
Expandable frame accommodates innumerable cargo sizes and shapes.
Strong perforated front axle reduces weight and accommodates bungee cords.
Bold modern design. The 10" rear wheels and 8 " front wheels roll more smoothly over rough terrain than the typical 2" or 3" casters used on small carts.
Construction Lightweight steel telescopic frame
No-flat solid rubber wheels
Dimensions Frame: 34 - 52", with 32" foldable sides
Wheels: 10 x 3" no-flat rear, 8 x 2.5" no-flat swivel casters

      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:

      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.

      Big Wheels

            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!

                  I've been using this cart for a few weeks now on video productions, and it is great to have around. Sometimes I use the short version of the cart, with both handles up, and load it with sand bags and other equipment. On other occasions I extend the cart with the knobs to almost twice the size and load it with tripod, camera bag, etc. I move the equipment and gear from one location to the next in factories, etc. and Its very handy to have.
                  I use to carry the stuff myself with an assistant, but this cart makes a huge difference and its an energy and time saver.

                          I purchased this cart as an additional video production cart. It just wasn't durable enough to carry all my gear. Several of my clients own the same cart, and they are always repairing them. I ending up returning it and getting the same thing I already had, a Kartmaster. A lot more money, but my first one is 13 years old and still going strong.

                                  Ultimately the R12 is very handy to have on location as a camera cart. We work in tight locations and it is a plus to be able to fly with a cart that allows you to keep all your gear in one place as you move around set.

                                  For this purpose though I would like it if it were lighter still. The reason for choosing the R12 over the other (lighter) models is it's extra height for using as a stand-at work station with the top shelf fitted. However, in addition to the steel and wood construction you pick up extra material weight with the added length capability and beefed-up front casters.

                                  We did have a back wheel break into pieces in transit the first time it was used on location, so although the wheels do the job of load-bearing for our purposes they may be susceptible to impact in transit. The wheel was easily replaced as a single item available at B+H. We are now using a padded flight case made for a stroller when checking in this cart and we remove the wheels - so far, so good.

                                    I use this multi-cart for transporting video equipment. I love that it can be adjusted in length to fit the size of the equipment that I am carrying. It is also very convenient the way it folds down into a small dimension so that it can be stowed in a vehicle.

                                    I recommend getting the carpet covering boards that create a more stable and less slippery platform for carrying crates, bags, tripods, light stands, etc. I also use kayak straps to secure the equipment to the cart.

                                    The multicart is a valuable piece of my video equipment package that I take with me on all shoots. Highly recommended.

                                          I like this thing..
                                          its collapses very easy and pulls aprat very well, its def a bonus buy! my only concern is that when u put a lot of heavy equip on it.. and push.. it bends a little, overall i would buy it again

                                              Ideally, you're gonna use this with some nice and square edged cases, but if you're like me and haven't gone the Pelican route just yet, get yourself some bungee cords. I picked up some nice flat 40" cords and they do the trick in holding my gear on the cart.I've transported so much stuff on this already. The biggest load so far held: 10' roll of paper, 5' roll of paper, heavy duty backdground stand, packed 48" stand bag, backpack full of lighting gear, Domke F1X sized bag, 2'x1' bag of lighting gear, 48" pole w/Kacey head adapter. Pulled the cart to full length and had the 10' roll going right through the handles and between the long cases and the smaller bags.The handles are a tad wobbly, but the steel catches at the bottom inspire a lot of confidence. The wheels are nice on this model and I had no problem going over a curb with all that gear. Turns very well.It's biggish when folded flat given the size of the rear tire, but it lives in the trunk of my Camry's trunk just fine.Get one, your back will thank you.

                                                This is my second cart and I would not have even thought of geting another brand. I wore out the first one from over use. I love the improvements to this item since the last one that I had for at least 8 years. I haul boxes of artwork to art shows; sometimes inside and sometimes outside and this cart makes everything easier. I would diffently recommend to others. Thanks

                                                  Transport gig equipment...Mackie amp, two large speakers, boxes, cables, stands, guitars and a keyboard. For years, I have used a bit of everything from handtrucks to teacarts...this multicart is just great!!! It folds and it fits in my van easily; extends to full length instantly...is light, durable, rolls like a dream and accomodates all my stuff securely and neatly.It was designed and built precisely for what I do and it shows. Maybe it will get old, but for nowloadin' up is a pleasure instead of a chore. I'mgetting older and ever mindful of limitations I didn't used to think about. The multicart probably has extended my career another 20 years! Oh, and thanks B&H, for your prices, integrity and great service.

                                                    I do on site video production and webcast services and need to transport a three camera flypack with encoders, lights, etc. This cart is solid and quite stout, yet collapses to a fairly compact package for transport. The arms have a bit more play in them than I'd like, but that's a minor nit. The height of the wheels keeps the cart from being as compact when collapsed as I'd like, but I think the larger wheels really are a benefit for real world use. VERY happy with the product. It was quick and easy to assemble, stout, but not overly heavy, particularly given the load it can support. The deck is a two piece affair, solid and a snug fit, but it limits the portability to a degree. Probably most useful if you're leaving the cart at a given location and don't need to collapse it frequently for transport.

                                                      I'd best describe this cart as something that's much more flexible than the traditional convertible dolly cart but not nearly as expensive as the high-end equipment carts made for heavy-duty film production use. This is definitely a step above what you can get at you local home improvement store and looks very professional. It's quite configurable and is more durable than you might think upon first inspection. The no-flat tires work well and the expandable bed works great. I'll probably be buying a second cart.
