Craftsman Pro 40" Creeper
I bought this unit after having two other very expensive units fail as I weigh 430 #'s. EXELENT product! Only problem I've had with unit is the nuts atop the wheels loosened up after a few hours use. Have to lift the race car up higher as the creeper is taller.

6" caster creeper
Dont know if above reviewer actually purchased this creeper cuz it does have 6" casters, actually too high at 9" tops, excellent padding and casters, but mine was shipped twisted, not sure if shippers handling or bad weld, so cant recommend at this point. but the advertised height of 5" is a misprint , the deck ht. is over 6".

Update the pictures and show pictures of underneath.

I bought the creeper because I do believe the professional line is better than the regular series. I hate, hate, hate, China stuff. All of my Craftsman hand tools are USA. I have been buying these tools for a lot of years and was lucky enough to buy stuff when I did. So it was difficult for me to buy this particular creeper being made in China, but even the Mat Corp. tool truck is carrying a lot of China stuff now. So I thought I would give it a try. I want to point a few things out as to why this is actually better than the regular creepers from Craftsman and also better than what is pictured(in certain ways). I paid 137 on sale and using coupons. Plus tax. First off, the wheel lay out on the frame is different than what is pictured. People commented on how it sits higher than regular creepers and based on the picture of the older style creeper with using these larger diameter wheels, they are correct by saying that. This creeper has bigger wheels than an average creeper and the frame design would make this sit at least a couple inches taller. NOW, the frame accommodates the higher wheels. Where the wheels mount at, that part of the frame swoops up in a "S" type pattern. Essentially allowing the frame and seat/bed to sit lower. Pretty much scraping the ground. Even though where the wheels attach to frame sits higher now compared to the older style, your head would sit higher above that part of the frame when you lay down. So the height issue has been corrected. This creeper will sit just as low as any creeper out there. The down side is the overall foot print is a little wider. Not a big deal in my opinion. The frame also has a support welded all the way down the middle (long ways) of the board giving plenty of support. So heavier weight will not allow the board to flex. Nice feature. You can feel the overall weight of the creeper is a little heavier, too. The wheels are of a solid rubber, not inflatable. This is where I am torn. Great feature to have the larger diameter wheels, as it does move pretty easy. However, I see a draw back that if I have to torch a piece off and it falls next to the solid wheel, I'm pretty certain the wheel will get damaged and melt. I know I shouldn't be torching in closed areas like that, but I am the type of wing nut that would do it. Overall, I like the creeper. I wouldn't pay full price. The casters should not break off as they so commonly do from the cheaper Craftsman creepers because they are thicker diameter bolts, and they go all the way through the frame. For everyday use, this is a decent creeper. If you use a creeper a few times a year, you probably don't need to spend this much on it. I am a tool snob and **** quality isn't something I can deal with unless it is a one time use. So buy it on sale and use Coupons and I would say you should be satisfied.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Rolls well but tires and wheels are the weak link.

Casters loosened up like everybody elses'. Just wrenched them tight w/ my Craftsman wrench. Tires always loose air. Don't Slime the tubes - they'll disintergate. Now one of the cheap plastic wheels broke and the tire debeaded & tube popped. Let's see how good the warranty is. It rolls over all obstacles great but can roll away when you're pushing hard on something under the chitty. Needs brakes. Best creeper I've ever owned in spite of it's shortcomings and I've had a bunch. Hope this was helpful.

Creepers

Purchased 2 creepers for heavy duty use at salvage yard. Immediately one wheel came off but we feel it just wasn't tightened completely. The large wheels make it much easier to get under the cars to pull parts and do not get"stuck" on floor dry, rocks and other automotive grease and such that may have gotten on the ground. The guys love them and I will purchase more after we see over time how they hold up. A little expensive but if they meet our needs they are well worth it.

SUPER CREEPER

THIS CREEPER ROLLS OUTSTANDING. IN AND OUT OF UN EVEN PAVEMENT IS NO PROBLEM. I NEVER MEASURED IT BUT IT DOES RIDE HIGHER THAN THE AVERAGE CREEPER. EVEN SO I HAVE NO PROBLEM GETTING UNDER A SCHOOL BUS OR TRUCK, AND IM A BIT OVERWEIGHT. MANY OF THE OTHER GUYS I WORK WITH LIKE IT TOO.THEY HAVE SNAP-ON CREEPERS AND MAC-TOOLS. THERE TIRES ARE AS TALL AS THE SEARS BUT ARE FLAT, THEY DO NOT ROLL AS EASY OR TURN AS WELL. THIS CREEPER ROLLS AND TURNS VERY WELL. THE ONLY DOWN SIDE I HAVE WITH CREEPER IS IT NEEDS BRAKES. IF YOU ARE ON A GRADED SURFACE IT WILL ROLL AWAY FROM YOU. I INSPECT AT LEAST 500 SCHOOL BUSSES EVERY QUARTER. I NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH THIS CREEPER. JUST PUT 80 PSI IN THE TIRES AND CHECK THE TIGHTNESS OF THE WHEELS AND YOU ARE SET

I would recommend this product to a friend.
