I don't know what I'd do without my R2!Apr 26, 2012
I live in a condo and the concierge receives my packages. As a girly girl (aka shopaholic), I buy a lot of things online. So on a weekly basis I receive a lot of packages. They vary from Pottery Barn, Sephora, Crate and Barrel, J.Crew, Banana Republic, etc. After making 2-3 trips back and forth from the Concierge's desk to my apartment, I finally caved and got this R2. So now, it's just one trip!
I've also used this when buying larger packages from IKEA and other stores. It's perfect for hauling bulky and heavy items. The R2 is also light and compact enough that I can easily store it.
I also like the other accessories that can come with it. Be sure to check out the Rock n Roller website for those too.
The only complaint that I have is that I couldn't figure out for how to expand and/or transform the cart from a multi cart to a dolly. It was frustrating at first. But once I figured it out, it's a snap. You have to step on the plastic covered, heavy duty wire at the end to release the catch. If you don't, it won't release or expand.

The Rock N Roller Multicart Model R2 Micro Makes Me The Popular Dad at Dorm Room Move In TimeAug 27, 2013
By J. Crawford
Yes, it only took one semester of moving my sweet daughter into her college dorm room before I knew there had to be a better way. One of the upperclassmen dads pulled me to the side and told me the secret - "you need a cart - now. you'll thank me later." So I embarked on the Amazon search tool for a useful, but somewhat inexpensive cart for the next move. First up, the Rock N Roller Multicart Model R2 Micro. I thought with "rock n roller" in the name and stylish yellow wheels, it had to be the one I needed (plus I always dreamed of being an Aerosmith roadie).
I was right - the Rock N Roller Multicart Model R2 Micro (we call it the "Rock N Roller Multicart R2" for short) proved itself worthy of the rock n roller moniker the minute I pulled it from the mini-van (which is NOT a rock n roller mode of transportation, by the way), extended its base, raised its end-rails and rolled it into the dorm for the end-of-year move-out. In one trip, we moved a compact fridge, a trunk, three boxes full of books, and assorted throw on the top of the pile type items. One more trip and we had it all packed in the mom-mobile and ready to go home for the summer.
Easy to assemble.
Easy to haul (due to its compact fold-ability)
Easy to extend for use.
Easy to store (again due to its compact fold-ability)
Easy on the eyes (due to those rockin' yellow wheels)
The Boyfriend (who now attend the same university as my daughter - go figure) took the Rock N Roller Muilticart R2 for an early move-in and ended up being the most popular underclassman in the coed dorm - not because of his manly good looks, mind you, but because of the Rock N Roller Multicart R2. When I moved my daughter over a few days later, one of the freshmen dads said "hey, that cart's a good idea". I told him to get one now. He would thank me later.

Friday afternoon quality control, but seems solid and helpfulNov 18, 2012
By James Bjork
I routinely perform on solo sax with backing tracks. Recently, I scaled up from a single powered loudspeaker for my backing tracks to a pair of QSC-K12's (which rock), and even some nice mics and a small mixing board for when I'm convening a jazz trio or quartet. I realized that I needed a cart instead of my collapsable dolly. I heard good things about rock-n-roller, so after doing some measuring, I went with this smallest and lightest model.
It arrived (very promptly) with some minor quality control issues. First, on the large real wheel axles, there are to be a pair of holes drilled opposite each other thru which one inserts a pin then you splay out the tips with pliers so it stays in place, and keeps the wheel on the axle. One of the holes was not drilled opposite the other across the axle, so Malaysian wage-slave decided to drill a second hole adjacent to the first, creating a figure eight super-hole. Not a big deal, since I could splay out the pin tabs one to each hole. After applying light grease to the axles as suggested, I found that one wheel will spin freely on the axle, but the other one has some resistance and will only do a single 360. Again, annoying but a mere trivial drag on operation of the cart relative to the heft of the cart fully loaded and gravity. Finally, one of the thick metal 90-degree tabs on the frame, that forms the notch to keep the smaller U-shaped handle in place in the upright locked position, was formed too narrow for the shaft of the U-handle to snap and rest all the way inside it. So, I had to apply tape to the tab to protect the finish, and use a large wrench and brute strength to bend it out slightly. Now, the U-handle will slap all the way in place into the notch when upright. I could get it done, but girly-girl shopper might need to enlist a strong set of hands to do this.
My first gig with this had me schlepping my stuff an unexpected half-block away at an outdoor mall gig, and the cart did the job fine. Now that its all good to go, I'm basically happy with it, and like others here, it strikes me as solidy-built, but hoping it will hold up over time- especially the wheels. If it doesn't, I'll revisit this review.

BEST MULTICART ON THE MARKETJan 03, 2013
I love the rock n roller brand. I have purchased three carts from this brand and all are of exceptional value. I use this cart at home and work. Even the smaller size like this one is great for moving or storage trips. The cart folds up nice for easy storage. It is also very simple to assemble (you only need to attach the wheels). If you are looking for a cart/dolly that will work for multiple uses then look no further because this is the brand you want.

A little baffled by all the enthusiasmJul 06, 2013
Okay, so it has a lot of potential configurations. The thing is, it's not great in any one of them. Whether set as a deck/platform or as a handcart, the handles only come up high enough for someone who's a little over 5' tall.
Changing the configuration involves pulling on a thick, coated wire to pull two of the structural bars closer together and push another set of bars slip under, around, or through. It takes strength and dexterity at the same time. There are a lot of exposed edges in this whole process, and I'm pretty sure that I'm eventually going to slice my hands up pretty bloodily.
It doesn't handle uneven terrain well--it IS a "micro" cart, with appropriately sized wheels, so this is expected--but I am counting curb cuts with slight uneven-ness at the expansion joint as "uneven terrain."
If you're using it as a hand truck, you're actually holding it by the exposed edges with one of the thick wires, so a bump may not only upset your cargo, it can be a bit dangerous for your hands. The nice U-shaped handholds are only available in the deck/platform configuration. The U-bar that folds down to make it a handcart really ought to rotate UP to become a taller, and safer, hand grip.
