    Hope to put away the plow for the season this weekend. Trying to figure out what will work best, and the easiest. There is a set of "1500 lbs" snowmobile dollies for $45 or I can make a custom rig with furniture dollies. If I use the furniture dollies, I think I would need a pair. One for the blade and one for the push frame. Would the sled dolly sit ok on the push frame? Is there enough are to find a spot that will sit ok?

    The furniture dollies are $20 each from home depot. Think I would at a 2x2 sheet of wood for the push frame dolly to give more surface area to sit on?

    Any suggestions would be appreciated- oh, it's. A 7'6" super duty

    A pallet jack is not an option. I could get a hold of a pallet (for free). I could add wheels to that and reinforce the pallet. Would that me stable enough?

    I made a dolly out of a 4X8 sheet of plywood, a couple of 2X6's and 4 dolly/caster wheels. Cut the plywood into a semi-triagular shape that encompases the plow, re-enforced the edges with the 2x6's along with cross bracing, then put 3 of the dolly/caster wheels along the "Blade Edge" of the platform and 1 on the "head gear / stand" edge of the platform.

    Got the HD dolly/cater wheels from Harbor Freight and the wood from Lowes. Cost me approx $35 and about 1/2 hour of my time, if I remember correctly.

    I just did this myself the other day, I got 3 furniture dollys from home depot, $10 each. Then i filled the open space in the middle with some plywood pieces. I then layed a 8ft 2x4 from one dolly to the other and fastened to each. put the plow on those dollys and put the 3rd under the jack then just rolled it where I wanted to put it. Worked better than I thought it would, extremely easy to roll.

    I left the 2x4 at 8ft because my plow is a 8ft super duty, Hope these pics help you.
