The Collapsible Cart made by Rhino Tuff Tools was born of necessity. Electricians John Shindelar and Stuart Zinke worked a different job site every day, almost always outside. Daily they wished for a durable work area to put together electrical projects and keep their tools and materials off the ground. A utility cart sounded like a practical solution but with limited space in a truck with lots of service boxes, they found all available carts took up too much room and were difficult to secure from rolling around during travel. There were very few carts that broke down to take up less space; those that did had loose parts that got misplaced and weren’t easy to handle when broken down to lay flat. After searching far and wide for a collapsible cart and not finding what they needed, they brainstormed with friend Terry Odom and thanks to Terry’s amazing welding/metal skills, the Collapsible Cart was created!
John and Stuart took their helpful Collapsible Carts to every job site and were constantly questioned as to where they purchased them. Other contractors were amazed at the durability and strength the Collapsible Cart as well as how easy it was to collapse and lock the wheels and place in the limited bed space for travel to the next job. The flat free tires assured there was never a flat or low tire that makes movement difficult and the double-locking casters locked the cart just where they needed it to efficiently work. The powder coating made the cart durable and able to easily withstand any weather we have here in the Pacific Northwest. No more making multiple trips to the truck to get tools and materials as the two electricians loaded about 400lbs daily onto their Collapsible Carts before starting that day’s projects.
After building carts one-by-one for other contractors that coveted John’s and Stuart’s carts, they realized they had created an awesome product that was labor- and time-saving for myriad professions. Rhino Tuff Tools incorporated and both a design and utility patent were applied for and awarded for the Collapsible Cart. After creating an informative website to sell carts as well as selling them on a few online marketing areas, we’ve had many federal agencies make multiple purchases as well as various occupations that found the cart to be tremendously helpful. We have sold carts to storm chasers, mobile car mechanics, mobile hospital workers and many to the film industry. Wedding caterers have called and told us how stable our cart is and how much it is trusted to handle very pricey wedding cakes rolling over rough terrain. (Now that is a use we never considered when building carts thinking only of the Trades!)
We continue to build our carts in North Idaho to assure each one is as durable and perfect as we expect. We are a Veteran Owned company and take great pride in manufacturing this great cart right here in our beloved United States! We have carts in stock and typically ship via UPS Ground within 24 hours of receiving payment. We have PayPal set up on our website and/or you can always call 800-308-8009 to pay with a credit card.
