Tractor Dollies - Problem Solved

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Tractor Dollies - Problem Solved

Postby Bill Hudson » Fri Apr 10, 2020 7:04 pm

A while ago I got eight Vehicle (Tractor) Dollies from Harbor Freight and I have been happy with their performance. However, this is what I have ended up with:

not to mention a lot of frustration! They somehow always were in the way and a chore to move.

The solution involved

Some leftover 1/8" x 2" angle iron and 1/4" x 2 1/2" flat stock.

This is the result.

I'm a happy camper!

For those inquiring minds, 16 3"pieces of angle iron and two 22 1/4" pieces of flat stock. In addition two 5/16" bolts and nuts that serve to lock in the bottom dolly to make a solid unit to move it around.
