Torin Pneumatic Chrome Creeper Seat, Model# TR6208
5 stars for the seat - 0 stars for the casters
I ordered 2 of these seats for daily shop use to replace a couple old Torin seats. The seats are used daily for vehicle graphic installation so a lot of rolling around is done. The quality seems great in every way except for the casters being complete junk. The wheels are made of a plastic so hard that they resemble metal wheels in that they will not roll over even the smallest obstruction (think large grain of sand here). Surprising that the 1" smaller diameter wheels on my old seats were much better in this regard. We keep the floor very clean so this would normally be a minor fault but only 2 weeks in, 4 of the 10 casters on the two stools will no longer swivel (2 on each stool). The swivel bearings are too loose and allow the race to rub on the caster arms. This renders the stools unsafe because as you roll around two of the casters will randomly and suddenly lock sideways and throw you off. Don't buy this stool unless you plan on spending the extra $ for some decent casters. I purchased some 4" skate style casters (1"x3/8" stem) and must say these seats are now amazing. To me, they are worth the combined cost of the seat and retrofitted casters but I definitely do not recommend them as shipped.

TORIN PNEUMATIC CHROME CREEPER SEAT
WATH CAN I SAY , THIS IS A PERFECT ROW AROUND SEAT. I USE IN MY GARAGE AND ITS PERFECT. THEY CALL ME BIG RED WHEN I WAS AT WORK. I THINK THE SEAT WAS MADE FOR ME . IT SAYS BIG RED ON THE SEAT AND I THINK YOU FOR THAT .I WAS ONE TO GET IT ON SALE AND THAT WAS A BIG HELP. OTHER SEATS COSTING AS MUCH CAN'T EVEN COME CLOSE. VERY NICE AND NOT ON SALE STILL A VERY GOOD BUY.

You can buy similar looking units for 1/3 the price, but you get what you pay for. This one seems sturdy and has robust caster wheels. Comes mostly assembled. The only thing that bugs me is the big huge logo mine has on the seat top that isn't shown in the photo. Oh well, no big deal.

Built to last
it is built solid as a rock and I am very happy with it. I use it in my garage, I make wood signs with a router so I need to be able to roll accross the floor without the wheels hanging up and it rolls smoothly. I weigh 265 and it is comfortable.. I can't imagine a better made stool than this one. I highly recommend this product without hesitation.

This is a very sturdy stool. I use it in my kitchen to keep me off my feet. I have back and heart problems and this roll around stool makes my life easier. I would recommend this item. It exceeded my expectations.

Garage Creeper Seat
I use the seat when I clean my car wheels or when I am at work at my garage bench. The seat is robust and is of excellent quality. The wheels are easy to roll. I have owned other seats but this one is the best for quality, and appearance. The value was very competitive with other seats on the market.

Nice addition to my new shop!
My wife bought this for me for Xmas for my new shop. She researched them and bought me this one. She made a wise choice. It rolls nicely along our cement floor. The tray below is very handy to put tools on. I think I will use this for MANY things from waxing vehicles to working on all our equipment. I highly recommend this to anyone. It is WELL BUILT!! I'm planning on buying another one to have around.
