Custom D.I.Y. "mounting accessories" for Remin Kartmaster® HD 500.

Recommended Posts

"Nose plate stiffener" isn't a euphemism, so get your minds out of the gutter. It's a great idea and addresses one of the Kartmaster's main shortcomings. Good work, Jim.

Really slick mods. I bolted quick fists to mine awhile back but not nearly as cool as yours!

Anyone manage to put bigger, better smart wheels on one of these? 

As much as I love this cart for its ability to shrink down to car trunk size it really sucks on anything but nice smooth floors.

That's fantastic stuff! I've had my Kartmaster for over 20 years, was just at the factory getting some wheel replacements. Good folks!

Good folks, indeed!  My Kartmaster is "late 90's?" provenance - It doesn't owe me a thing!

fwiw... This spoke to me - When I saw, that - Someone had taken the time to handstamp?

I totally agree with you, Derek - Though 'heavy-duty' ... The 'shopping cart' * casters only work best in 'urban jungle' settings. Heck, even a gravel driveway has me muttering to myself.

(* To those who might be looking to replace just the actual 'caster wheel' itself - not the whole assembly - the wheel is available on some of the 'shopping cart' repair websites - As Remin will only sell you the entire 'assembly.' (stem, and caster)

And, no - even though I've entertained the thought of doing a mod / upgrade to an 'off-road' grade of smart wheels - the time and effort I felt it would require in the shop was quickly canceled-out with a purchase of a Rock n' Roller r12, when they first became available. Even as crappily built as the RR 12 is (comparitively speaking) I have not re-visited my HD 500 smart-caster-mod since. Oh well.

Here's me just being silly re: your "car trunk size" : (zoom zoom)

And, in case anyone had concerns re: my D.I.Y / homemade 'Jockey Box' curb clearance?

Where's the "Like" button? Impressive and compact as well as DIY.  I also must say well done on the video. I like that you only have sync sound without dialog. Less was more IMO. Thanks.
