    I tried all kinds of homemade dollies over the years. Most took up too much storage space when not in use. My favorite was made by a buddy. He used 2 wheels off of a shopping cart and welded them to pipes that would fit in the shoe brackets. Worked like a charm. If you need a 3 point system you can make one that will attach to the frame. Best bet is to use a small trailer crank jack positioned to clear your bumper. Attach with a clamp. Good luck!

    I use snowmobile dollies. Work great and for 30 bucks a lot cheaper than the purpose built units.

    One of the places I plow is a small fast food hot dog stand, they receive there buns in trays and put them on small dollys to wheel them in. They gave me two of them I just welded two 3/4 square bar about eight inches high on one end and when done plowing I just pull in to the dolly when the plow hits the two 3/4 inch square bar and aligns it self and drop the plow.
