    Default Heavy duty drawer sliders

    I'm looking for drawer sliders
    about 1600mm 80kg. I have a Land Rover Defender 130 load bin, that I've made into a Defender 4x4 trailer, that I want to make one big sliding drawer.

    Furnlock.

    Check out their website.
    Mine extends 1m out of 110 rear and can take about 80kg per slide at 400mm extension.
    ( Might be slightly out with my specs)

    IIRC you are able to obtain an extra heavy duty 180kg's at 400mm. Furnlock or at 4x4 direct and 1520mm in length

    those long ones are expensive.

    They are good in general, but attract dust and dirt in the slides and eventually become sticky. Why not make slides from bearings running on angel iron?

    Or Teflon strips could also work

    They are VERY heavy - but do an excellent job.

    Contact Sarel F or Witklipbank from Blinkgat products, I saw in their new camper build thread that they'll be using some super heavy duty slides for their bed in the new camper truck.
    It's in pubs where the world's greatest ideas begin.

    Go look here;

    I turned my DC load in into 1 large heavy duty slide, 180kg. It comes out by a meter..

    Best thing I ever did, no more crawling inside the bin, under the canopy to get stuff at the back and my wife can load and unload much easier.

    I currently have a 1.2mt furnlock installed in mine, however I have lost some of the balls in the slides.

    See here for inspiration

    When my slide fails I will be going this route.

    don't get me wrong the furnlock slide are good, however they do not like dust. That dust is its downfall

    or just wash them well to remove the grease and lube with “white lightning” or similar dry lube from bicycle shops...
    mine is going strong and dirt free after ~4 years. And pre covid, we camped every month... so can definitely recommend this option

    So if you have this at 1600mm long, you can only slide it out about 1000 to 1100mm. The piece inside is required to hold the drawer up and in place.That is unfortunately the downfall of this type of drawer slide.

    I've had my home made fridge slide since 1998 that I made for my Sani and have transferred it to each of my successive safari vehicles. It is now in my Patrol. It uses the Furnlock and Slide 800mm heavy duty slides.

    It has never give trouble, I have newer cleaned them and I have been on many Kalahari and Namib trips. Successive rails from FL & S for drawer systems have given trouble but not the set I bought from them back in the 90s. Maybe a different and much better make than their current lot.

    What I find with their current ones, is that the stoppers pack up and then the whole slide pulls out, all the balls fall out and scatter on the floor and then the drawer falls on the floor!!!

    I build these sliders about 4 years ago. I used Furlock heavy duty sliders on the bottom tray.
    Did find that dust make the sliders slide a bit rough. Other than that they still going strong.
    Done many many gravel roads through Africa. Enough space to load 2 National
    Lunar fridges and 4 high Amo boxes, gas bottle and area for working on.
    The space under the slider is for a 1460mm x 800mm table.
    Top slider take 2 Amo boxes.

    Here’s a smart plan. No fussing with drawers. These pull out beds allow a variety of packing options.
    Are there kits for installing these?
    Who makes these for a fair price?
    Thanks for this share
