- hard case
- 4 wheels
- extending handle

Point me in the right direction.

Something like this maybe, but more industrial looking and less "luggage" looking of possible:




The cheaper the better. It can be small, but needs to be wide enough that it will balance well when being pushed on all 4 wheels. And needs to be durable.


ETA: This would be great if it had 4 wheels:

Pelican makes some, but they are pricey. I've got one of thier breifcase sized units and I use it for hauling my laptop and network testing gear around. Thing's built like a damn tank.

Starlight offers awheel option on most of their stuff, but it will also be just two wheels. Four wheels is considered a gimmick and pain in the ass in many circles - not the least of which due to the difficulty getting them to stay still.

This is going to double as a tool. I will need to be able to push it around factory floors. My best bet might be to get the hard tool case and add two wheels.

This works. A little big and a little expensive. 2" shorter would be perfect: ETA: Actually doesn't look like it has a telescopic handle.

Starlight would probably custom make it for you if you ask. It shouldn't be any hard for them than adding the wheels/bumper combination they do now.

For your purposes, you might be better off installing braking casters, though.
