    My plan was to engineer a dolly which could be used for more than one purpose...after the TFS hybernation had ended the wheel dollies I bought don't serve any other purpose I plan to make a wheel dolly that is adaptable..that can go under the wheel for purposes of shifting the car fo more garage space and move the car with 2 corner wheels removed like when working on brakes..not a issue outside but in a small garage the scenario arises when the dollies become a handy tool..also the dollies for sale require you to push and pull from the body work...mine will have a purpose built handle to comfortably shift about...and be able to move site equipment.garden hardware...just got to think of the best multipurpose design before I make another or start again and make a a custom 2..if I was going to move the car completely wheel less I would have 1 in each corner..nice to know you can shift a car blocking the drive innit...but I would rather use that met JCB and crunch the bugger..endless thoughts here you could use the JCB to rip out a cash machine and use my dolly to wheel the machine home.

    Neat work but I'd be worried that because of its small foot print it won't be that stable with a hole car on it. It'll be fine on one corner or even one end.

    Yes I understand your concern of weight..but this project dolly is for one corner only...I plan to make one more..which will if I want I can put one either side of the tf...each wheel is 600kg rated so 8 wheels on the rear or 8 wheels on the front should be enough...100mm plus off the ground im not planning to be underneath...it's just for moving the car from one side of the garage to the other...the guy I bought my dollies from only had 2 for moving is boat trailer...so hence me making 2 more...having the 100mm wheels are over the top..it means jacking the car higher toposition them...I use the word prototype has I may may make another...the one shown was just a afternoon.project which I can improve on...being a DeWalt fanatic...I may also make one to skate around my fetish of t stak tools ...like these for when I go around country on site..

    ...the t stak tools i have has a dewalt dolly.i bought ...but having your own welder and a bit of time .makes it more bespoke...the dollies I make and my welding expertise won't move a JCB but are engineered enough to take a little tf in my garage
    DeWalt dolly below...I

    My project if not used in th garage will be engineered to be used else where.

    Dolly I built has four 600kg rated wheels and heavy box construction frame .unfinished

    I made some before but they were marking the garage floor.and were hard to push..I was in the garage before Christmas and thought hey I will get some decent ones ...located some within 7 miles power of the net....and the other day.I got out the welder to make some dollies to use has general purpose has site tool shifters and garage helpers...I'm thinking that this unfinished prototype I've created will go under body to move cars with wheels off..heavy duty castors with 100mm wheels for easy shifting.project dolly below



    I bet that fast trac was a marvel to see.

  • I would like the rolls experience the most but if you ain't got the cash and you don't want to spoil the mg by sticking on bitumen sheets then just set off on your long journeys with these on...bonus blocks out the sound of the Mrs telling you when to brake.
