Any car dollies that work good?

Anyone bought a set of car dollies that work, I am just looking at the ones without the built in jack.

Re: Any car dollies that work good?

I bought a set from summit when I had a part car in the shop.

Pros:
-They push the car around
-Now that I don't have a parts car, they fit an FE bare block perfectly, also fits a c6 transmission which is nice cuz stuff is heavy and I'm lazy
-Pretty sturdy to be honest

Cons:
-Studs and nuts stick up, could damage tires
-It's pretty darn hard to push a 3,000lb car, takes some finesse and working the front and back of the car as needed
-Can push that 3,000lb+ car, but just try rolling over anything.... a ziptie will be your undoing

I did not think of using them for engines and granny's, that's a good idea. I was looking at a set by redhound that have a lifetime warranty, I called them up and the warranty covers the castors they said.

$99 for high quality dollies seems like a good enough deal to me. Even if you rarely use them, you'll still probably get enough use out of them to warrant that cost.

Yeah, and when his grand parents come over he'll be able to move his granny around easily!

Re: Any car dollies that work good?

I bought these and they arrived yesterday, very happy, have to rock the car a little if castors are not turned right but then it is easy, I think I will order 2 more for a couple engines like Deep Roots uses them for.
