I have been kicking around an idea on using a two wheel dolly as some sort of tool cart. Thinking an air compressor would be on the bottom the boxes for the tools I need for that particular job. But I want them to stay attached to the cart and possibly swing to the side to access each box with ease. But I would like to have swivel wheels on the cart in front so you can move it easily.
Kind of like the sys roll cart but I don't want to take the systainers off and scatter them on the floor. Then at the end of job or day just roll it out all together and put it in the van. Either totally custom make a cart or hang some boxes on an exiting cart. Any way I hope to soon try to put something together. Will post pics when I do.
Heres where I got with it so far!

Whoops took a few more pics but didnt work so will take some others tomorrow.

I have on there. Glue, tapes, cleaning cloths, packers/shims. Screws and other fixings. Clamps. Compressor and pin guns. Spirit Level.

I just ordered a sys roll for this exact purpose. Will post pics when its been pimped. Im supprise its not been done yet....or maybe it has and i have missed it. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with:D

This sounds interesting, can't wait to see some pics. Up until now I've used a sturdy two wheeled foldable cart and added a bigger platform that holds two systainers instead of just one, doubling the potential load quantity. Two extra swiveling wheels would be really nice though.
I like that cart idea....Im going to have to steel it  [big grin] I also use the Dewalt stack able  screw bin organizers as I was using plastic 1 gal paint cans previously and they took up a lot of room.

I have found the systainers are great for some applications but not the end all. Like others I like the Dewalt TSTAK system as they hold some larger tools and stackable like Festool. Then Husky box for electrical/specialty is also nice. Im slowly getting away from buckets and bins  [cool]
