I suppose, if you really think about you could put wheels on one of the sides toward the bottom just low enough so that when you tip it; it is on it's wheels. The retractable handle.... well that might not be so easy but you could probably use something like a drawer handle if the bin would be up high enough (or if your short ).

Just a thought...

That box I posted the link to does have internal wheels. It just doesn't have a very good handle on the end to drag it around for long distances, at least a comfortable one. Here is the larger picture where you can see the wheels.

Don't ever get the OFNA Ultimate Pit Bag. The right wheel lasted me about 1 year then broke off.

i'm a drifter so not much crab to carry hahahaha..but some tools, tapes, few set of rims and tire, charger, discharger, power supply and 4 packs of battery, so i also need a big bag to carry.

bro Minami, in malaysia also can find that tool box but very exspensive, so end up i bough a speed mind 3 box hauler bag, every thing in except my tx hehehe...but i also have a speed mind tx bag also hahaha..that make it a set.

the speed mind hauler bag are box inside not drawer, so i modified to drawer.

Does this bag have the tool holders up top?

Thanks

here in the philippines, it's priced almost the same as the other hauler bags. so i decided to get this instead of a "bag". it's big enough to house my charger, bag, power supply, spares, etc and still have room for others.

The FatMax is nice but transport in your vehicle can be a problem. I have it as well as the T8, which can also be a problem in a vehicle but seem to work better for me.

Hi jbmx4life,

I recently bought a Team Magic F10 bag, it's a wonderful storage bag, if you want more space I suggest you the Team Magic F8 bag.

I hope it'll useful for you.

Ciao.
