    I was interested in shrinking/compressing my rig. I traded a GK 700 RBii for a GK Fusion 500, and desired something smaller than a 16U Gator Deluxe Touring. While the Deluxe was bullet proof, I was tired of relying on others to help me unload/load etc. I shrunk my rig down to a Sure wireless, Voodoo LabbII brick, 4 MXR pedals, GK Fusion500, and assorted cables with a GK Neo 410 cab. I have an unusual situation because I am visually impaired so compact and versatile is the name of the game. The Gator 8U rolling was the total solution for me! It is much more sturdy than I expected, and it rolls smooth and quiet. Additionally, Roq was immensely helpful and on-the-ball with potential solutions; not to mention his customer service on the phone- Second to none! Awesome solution, awesome SweetWater! Thanks a ton.

    Outstanding Case, just what I needed

    This case is just what I needed to mount my equipment and deep enough for me to get access to the rear of the equipment for patching. I loved it so much I ordered a second one.

    Thanks to Tim in sales, I felt comfortable enough to take a chance on this this case. Good work Tim, I will order again.

    Gator 8U w/ Handle and Wheels

    Give Sweetwater a 5.0 on service and customer care. As for the case, I have my ham gear and 2U drawer mounted in the case and it's really nice. I'd give the case a 5.0 but I found the handle to be a bit less durable than I was expecting. It works well and I'd definitely recommend it for other hams wanting a clean and portable equipment mounting system.

    Excellent case, terrible handle

    OK, will keep it short and sweet. FIrst, the good: The case itself feels very solid, molded plastic feel very sturdy and secure. VERY lightweight which is great. Latches are average, but they work.

    The bad: Two big things; first off, why the heck doesn't it have rear rack rails? If gives you a "free" coupon to mail in + $10 shipping to get them, why not just give the buyer the option in the front end to pick them up with the case? Charge them the extra $10 then so there isn't the extra wait and hassel. Secondly, the pull handle (to be used with the wheels) is extremely flimsy and weak. It wobbles around even when the case is empty, I am nervous to see how it performs when the case actually has 8U of rack gear in it. Big fail IMO, an extra 1/8" of thickness on the pull handle metal would have made it infinitely stronger and more secure, very disappointing.

    Overall, I would say the case is excellent if you are not dependent on rear rack rails, and don't need the carry handle and wheels to transport it. The first point is very specific to the user of whether it is an issue or not, however the reliability of the pull handle will be an issue to most using an 8U rack filled with gear. I am debating whether or not to return the entire unit based solely on the poor construction of hat pull handle.
