Can I use a dolly with my MD75?

    I'd like to use snowmobile/plow dollies with my MD75 but after taking a look tonight and trying it does not look like the plow is made to come off unless it's on the ground and not elevated 3-4 inches like you'd get with a dolly. When I tried with the dolly under the blade I was unable to get the jack into the opening because of the kick-stand like thing which pops up to support the light-bar.

    Any info/help would be greatly appreciated. If it's not possible then anyone want to buy 3 brand new 1500# dollies?

    Hello, I tried to do something similar with mine. It didn't work either. I wish I knew a way myself. I have had a garage built for the truck/plow combo,and the contractor built it just a little short :( The truck/plow combo is just three inches too long! Wanted to do what you want to do also. Sorry I couldn't help!

    I'm thinking maybe make a couple of ramps equal height a the dolly and dive on them...the plow would then be at the same height as the dolly... Its the best solution I can come up with at the moment.

    i have the md75 and when i unhook the plow in my garage i just use a floor jack to lift it up and put dollies under neath it. just unhook it like normal using the jack on the plow then roll the floor jack under the knuckle bolt where the moldboard connects to the frame and it will balance itself jack it up then just slide your dollies under it. let me know if it works it does for me

    i use a floor jack on my boss to if that helps. i think a floor jack will be the best bet.

    I think it's easier to maneuver the jeep rather than mess around with the dolly idea...the supplied jack does a good enough job getting the plow to the correct height. I'll use the dolly for end of season storage/maneuvering.

    Have you tried dropping the blade on your dollies then backing out. After cleared of mount then jack up rear of plow and place another dollie under the frame. I have used furniture dollies in the past but now just use a forklift and pallet.

    We also used a frame made out of 2x4 and plywood (in the shape of a tee) with wheels on the corners. Then just position the plow assy under the plow and lower. Use the suppied jack and lower completely. This let's you position everything easily.

    Place the jack that comes with the blade on the frame as usual before backing out.

    I tried using the dolly that came with my old MM2 and it was too high for the low natur of the Snow Dogg frame and jack.
