This tote only has roller wheels on one side. Right now, the heaviest machine would be a 99K handcrank.

That sounds like the one I had. Tilts back and rolls on 2 wheels (well two sets of two wheels) - like this one: https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/wheeled-sewing-machine-case-bluefig-tb19.aspx? (On my phone so limited ability to find a better pic, sorry).

I got mine caught in a snow rut and gave a very little tug. There was a crunch and one of the sets of wheels were on the ground along with part of the frame. If you can replace the whole rolling mechanism with something truly made of metal (not metal with plastic fasteners which is what most seem to be) it might be possible but I’d check the weight capacity and make sure it’s well above the weight of the machine to accommodate project weight, the odd unexpected jerk or bump, etc.

Good food for thought. Since Western Washington has limited snow days, I think my machine hauling will be limited to days without snow!! At this point, I am just glad to have a machine case to fix up and use and didn't cost me $25 or more. Thank you for your helpful words.

Annette rolling soft sided coolers make good machine totes. They sometimes have a bit sturdier frame since a full coolers can be heavy. I found a square Thermos brand soft sided cooler at Goodwill several years ago and my Consew serger fits in it perfectly. That thing is a heavy beast, I sure like having it in a rolling tote instead of having to carry it around.

A good rut or a pothole can do the same - so I guess just be cognizant that it could be a risk.

Cari, great idea. I found a nice beach tote (kind if matches, too) for my 301, but darn, it's heavier than it was a few years ago.
