Reader Litcritter just became a proud papa, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a tool guy. While his bundle of joy was being born he took the time to swing the camera around and grab a shot of the crash cart in the corner of the room.

We dig this for two reasons: Firstly, because Litcritter is just cool for thinking about rolling storage while his daughter was coming into the world; and secondly because some IT team decided to buy comparatively cheap rolling storage from Sears rather than pay crack-smoking prices for the same gear painted taupe.

    You have it exactly right. The crash, utility and other ‘hospital grade’ carts pushed by medical supply company’s are insanely priced. My favorite scams are the ‘laptop carts’ that go from $1500-2000’ish. They are basically a chair base with an articulating arm.

    Craftsman carts are used throughout our surgery dept. by the Anes. Drs. and their CRNAs. They are very reliable, versitile, and can take the punishment that our staff inflict upon them. I often say that if you gave a rubber mallet and an iron anvil to surgery, you will end up with two piles of dust in minutes. (I have to repair the equipment they “damage”.)

    I use one in my home office as a cabinet base. I wish I would have gone with a ball bearing version instead of the cheap glides. I store disc, basic hand tools, camera equiptment, cables, etc in it.

    I’ve seen (on TV, granted, not in real life) everything from Craftsman to Snap-On used as storage in hospitals. I always keep a lookout in the background to see what they are using!

    FYI….. no respectable IT department would go anywhere NEAR that thing!! If it’s med equipment maintenance, inspection, and repair, call the BIOMED GUYS! (and gals!).
