    check out the snowmobile dolly on www.Northerntool.com

    They are like $25. You get three dollys. Two with the skid indent (perfect for the cutting edge to sit on) and a flat thrid one for the stand or whatever. They hold a lot of weight too. Lots cheaper than other plow dollys I have seen. Depends on how heavy your plow setup is, but check it out! wesport

    One thing I can say about those snowmobile dollies from personal experience, is they don't hold up! They may be rated for 1500lbs, but when you let gravity drop 800lbs on them, they fold like pretzels after a while. I had a set, lasted a year, and went to the grave yard. That is why I made my own. I just dont want anyone to waste any of the little money they earned during this dismal winter!

    I want my dolly

    For the past few years I've been using an engine hoist / cherry picker instead of dolly wheels. It is so easy to use it's great. I can drive up til the hoist chain touches the plow lift chain and drop the plow. To install I just lift the boom until the plow is at perfect height and it's ready!.

    Paid @ 100.oo, I bought it at one of those tool shows that sells all that stuff made in Chinese childrens prison factories. - Homers or someting. For that price I can afford to leave it out all winter.

    PB :cool:

    I found a set of snowmobile dollies for cheap today, so I got them, if that last through the summer I will be happy. Once I decide on a welder I am going to make a custom one!
