    I made one out of a heavy duty doly that I could drop mine on and role it ot the back of the garage. Works pretty well.

    Pallet jack

    We have found a regular pallet jack works great. Drop the plow and push the pallet jack right under the plow like it is your truck. This has worked with our Bosses, Western and our Snoways.

    They sell a small three piece set up. I have one for my snowmobiles that works fine. Two saddles w/ 4 wheels each go under the blade and one saddle w/ 4 wheels goes under the a frame. They just have to be heavy duty!

    We put the plows on pallets and move them around with either a pallet jack or our bobcat. In the summer, we then stack them on unused pallets of salt.

    what kind of plow is it?

    I made one for my fisher mm. It works ok, i put on wheels that were rated for 400 each from home cheapo. big mistake. I should be able to push the plow by myself but it takes two people. I suggest using the highest rated wheels you can find.

    I made mine out of a 2X8 piece of spruce that is about 5 feet long with about a dozen of the small cheap casters fastened to the bottom of it. This simply has the cutting edge resting on it. I also have a small rear one that has about 5 small casters that the back end of the plow sits on. I have been using it for over a year now and it is still holding up well.
