I've moved sleds about any way you can think of...I got the Easymover Cart like Marc has after seeing his in action....I even have the larger wheels for rougher terrain wheeling....$169....best thing I've used yet....The guy from the manufacturer was at The Big East Show with them and you can buy them that way or call them up....Also handy for putting on new carbides and studding the track

I got mine in the www.sportsmansguide.com for $129 two years ago and I just checked - they are now $139.97! You can't beat them thats why you see them in all the dealers shops! This place has all kinds of neat sled access. cheap.

I have an Easymover too, found it doesn't work so well if your moving it out of your garage and its not perfectly level. It also doesn't seem to stay parrallel on the ZR Chassis - fine for sleds with trailing arms but I don't think it work that great for the ZR Chassis, maybe I need to try the big wheel kit for it - anyone have a photo of how they attach? I figured you couldn't slid it under the sled with the large wheels on - its tight the way it is now with the smaller wheels.....

Are you pulling it back until it hits the track, then lifting the sled? Mine seems to work great on my ZR. Marc

I have a set of dollies, I love the things.

There are 4 casters for each ski dolly, and 3 casters on the dolly that goes under the track.

They roll really good even if I have some ice build up on the floor.

Team Arctic, yet I pull it all the way back to the track - it lifts the ski's only about an inch off the ground and track an inch off the ground at one time. If slightly uneven ground studs or carbides make contact to the pavement...

This one's a conventional Mar-Lift dolly.

Except it is no longer 'conventional'... I cut the side tubes and inserted 7' of thick walled pipe of which the OD is smaller than the ID of the Mar-Lift dolly. They're pinned with through-bolts to keep them from turning or slipping out.

The purpose for this mod was to get the top tube of the lift behind the sled so it could go all the way down to the ground if you wanted it to... For even more height! The stock configuration provided minimal height because the top tube would contact the seat, and you had no more lift!

So there I go, always tinkering & modifying stuff...

The 25L 6US Gal. pail of tranny fluid gives you some perception how far off the ground the track is. If I ever need to install studs, or tinker with something back there, It's the right height to pull up a chair, which is easier on my blown knees than squatting.
