I was under a house the other week and I hated it because if I forgot something me or my helper would havee to crawl back out and get it. I may try to make me a small box to which a rope could be tied on each end. When I go under I can drag a rope with me, then I can pull it in. If I need something else the helper outside can pull the rope and place it in the box so I can drag it back under. may be pretty cool tool!

Interesting idea, just make sure it is low enough to get under the drains, and tall enought to make it worth while.

I just pick up a box at the supply house, and make it work on the job site. I drag it around, usually get it full of dirt, and just throw it out when I am done with the job

Let us know how it works. :thumbsup:

I am thinking about 16" long x 12" wide x 5-1/2 tall with a curved bottom so it will ride over any objects on both ends.

I have been using a simple mortar pan (about $10) to drag tools and supplies in for several years now but that thing looks very interesting. Are you saying it supports your body and if so how much of a body is it rated to support :whistling2:. In my case it would need to carry say, ... oh, ... in the neighborhood of around, ... roughly, ... more or less, ... approximately, 238 lbs. (depending on whether or not I ate breakfast). Very intresting.

This thing is awsome! My son works for me and he found this thing online after helping with several repipes under homes. I was kind of sceptical when he first bought it, but after trying it myself, I loved it.

I have bad knees and with the krawler my knees don't touch the ground and i can move around the crawl area with just my hands and forearms.

I weigh 210lbs and the Krawler could handle anyone up to...say...280.

When my son was 21 he was trying to get away from plumbers, along with carpenters, car wash people, grocery bagers, grass cutters, and anyone else associated with work!
