Tanos Maxi-Trapo - dolly cart
« on: May 05, 2021, 11:12 PM »
Does anyone have one of these Maxi Trapo carts? I just ordered one, been looking at the festool carts and sys roll, thought this was much nicer and better for what i do.  How do you like it?

I like that better than the sys roll and other Festool options. Would need to compare in person though to see how many Systainers I could transport.

I’ve looked at these…(LeeValley?) and wondered also. I’d really be interested in YOUR opinion as to how it worded for you…I’ll be watching for a review
There are no mistakes....just new designs.

I ordered it because i have dozens of systainers and this will help me daily, but i like that it folds up and that i can use it to move many other things.  It will be here tomorrow evening.

What a disappointment.  I can’t believe i paid of $350 for this.  The cart plus the strap.  Is feels so flimsy and not the build quality im used to with tanos and festool.  I’ve said it a million times, this company rips you off on on accessories, they bend you over big time.  When it comes to festool machines and their systainers i can look at it and know that i got my moneys worth.  But not with their accessories or stuff like this cart.  I know for sure i could have bought another cart built so much better for the money i spent.   Anyways, thats the end of my rant.  Wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

I have to say, that with no Systainer locking compatibility, I don’t get why it is any better than any old hand truck.
there's nothing like the right tool for the job

Al Festool carts are junk. Return it, get the RuXXac Business XL folding hand truck. I have it, for over 10 years now and still going strong, very sturdy.

I suspected so, and I think this is the same as Makita market with their name also.

With no systainer lockability it’s just another trolley.
Festool’s own simple one is all right, but it is all plastic too. I really like the front wheels on Festool’s own.

I’ve been looking at trolleys, and figured I’d get best of both worlds by finding a really good trolley (to my liking) and screw a Systainer cart at the bottom, preferably the old with clasps.

I was wrong, it does looks a bit better actually. It’s base and rails are suited for systainers with tabs to secure it better, no locking though.

There are many different types of these carts available from many different manufacturers. Most of them are very low quality, so make sure you know what your buying. The RuXXac carts on the other hand are very good quality, they are really made to last.
