Torin Plastic Creeper - 40in.L, 280Lb. Capacity, Model# TRP6240
Piece of Junk
It didn't last an hour before the center wheels broke through the plastic. The cheap wheels were chewed up by concrete in my driveway. It say it is rated for 280 pounds. They must mean ounces.

Scrapes the floor at 240 lbs.
Looked like a good creeper for what I needed. Couldn't try the one on display because it was zip tied to the rack. Tried it in the garage and immediately to the floor. Maybe they have a quality problem and it's hit or miss but I wouldn't risk it. I wanted an inexpensive creeper that wouldn't interfere with my arms. I returned this one and am trying the Arcan for a little more. Still open by the arms.

Didn't even get to use it one time.
I bought this creeper last night and started using it this morning. I noticed that it was really hard to maneuver, turns out it my weight (190 lbs) was causing the plastic to drag the ground. I may have bought a lemon but i have noticed other complaints in previous reviews. I would not buy this again!!!!!!!!

low profile, smooth rolling
I've owned this for 2 years. I use it to change the oil on two vehicle.
It is very low and easy to get under vehicles. The compartments are useful for keeping tools and hardware in place.
At 220lbs it holds my weight just fine.

torin plastic creeper
This creeper was fine for a few months, not totally smooth rolling wheels as they tended to pick up grit from my garage floor. Real problem came when the plastic body cracked towards the bottom third. I am only 165lbs, so it was either defective or its rating of 280lbs is not right. Northern Tool allowed me to swap it for a metal creeper, lesson learned.

This creeper states that it can hold 280lbs. Not entirely true. At 200lbs laying absolutly flat its fine but shift your weight and the bottom will scrap the ground. The wheels need to be lubed every week or they will not turn with your weight on it. Good price if you use it once in a while but in a professional setting this is not worth it. I use mine daily and get frustrated when I'm under a vechile and the wheels don't turn like their suppose to. I have had it a month and the middle wheels already have flat spots. The under side is all scratched up from it rubbing the ground while trying to remove bolts and moving it to get better leverage.

This creeper has a nice low profile, and is easy to maneuver underneath a vehicle. This creeper can handle the stated weight capacity with no issues.
I would recommend

Great creeper with smooth rolling
I bought two of these on sale, one for my personal use and one for work (we have to inspect our bus periodically for safety sake). I have used a number of creepers over the years and I will stick with this one from now on. The wheels roll super smooth even on asphault. The shoulder contours are just right. Gliding from one end of a 40 foot bus to the other is simple and smooth.
