post-easyroller.jpgIf you don’t yet have the 10,000 sq. ft. shop of your dreams, you’re probably like us and sometimes have trouble moving the project car(s) around to get done what you need to get done.  It’s even worse if one or more of them don’t run.  The Stinger Easy Roller definitely improves things a bit by putting the car on casters, allowing you to roll it in any direction.

We’ve seen (and used) a number of such devices, but most of them require that you first jack the car up then drop it on the rollers.  The Easy Roller shortcuts the whole process by integrating a spring-guided hydraulic jack; Just roll the Easy Roller around the wheel and step on the lever a few times to lift the car, placing it on the rollers.

With four of the units, Stinger says you can lift a 6,000 lb. vehicle — each unit supports up to 1,500 lbs.  They work with tread widths up to 12″, and feature four heavy-duty casters.

The only real drawback is the price: Street pricing starts around $110 each, which puts you at around $500 for a set after tax and/or shipping.

    I knew a photographer in college who used four of these to roll really nice cars in and out of his studio. He had one of those fancy white curved wall studio areas — whatever you call them. Makes moving a car a real snap — one person can do it.

    Renting a set of these, plus a friend with a video camera, can be a hilarious way to spend an afternoon. Move people’s cars into all sorts of improbable, or impossible, positions. Or catch bystanders’ reactions as 3 guys push a car down the street, then suddenly turn it sideways and keep pushing, the car’s centerline now perpendicular to its direction of travel.
