Put It To The Test: DJS Fabrications Car Dollies

1216-ppn-productreview-01-1200x800

Moving an unfinished project or disabled vehicle around a shop or driveway is a common challenge. When you figure the number of people hurt from strained backs and breakaway cars, there is good reason to find a product that can safely and easily allow you to move those two-ton hulks where you need them.

1216-ppn-productreview-03-800x1200DJS Fabrications Car Dollies will allow the easy movement of vehicles up to 16,000 pounds (4,000 pounds/dolly). The rectangular shape of the base allows accommodation of both average and oversized tires up to 18 inches by simply turning the Dolly 90 degrees.

Along with the standard tire carrier style of support, the DJS Fabrication Dollies offer several other innovative support methods. For many classic cars (General Motors, Ford, etc.) that have underbody “pinch welds” that run the length of the rocker, DJS Fabrications has developed a bolt-in support that aligns with the pinch weld and supports the body.

In our testing, the Dollies held firm and the high-quality casters and low friction polyurethane wheels made movement of a vehicle a one-person operation. Of particular interest to the shop owner we used for the test was the brake rotor mount that also bolts up to the Dolly base. In effect, the Dolly stand bolts to the rotor studs, providing a solid support. In this manner, you can accurately direct the vehicle where you want it. Both the pinch weld and rotor support system are included in the base kit.

Features

  • Heavy-duty, all-steel angle-iron construction
  • Low friction solid polyurethane wheels
  • High-strength ball bearing casters with grease fittings
  • 22×17 overall size for 18-inch wide tire capability

Cam Says:

Having pushed a lot of vehicles around in my day, these dollies are truly amazing. Stir in the fact you can use them simply as a tire dolly, as a steerable rotor stand, or under the body of an under construction, and you have a product well worth the price. Regardless of the terrain, moving a vehicle becomes a one-person operation with these amazing Dollies.
