The overall construction design is good with a couple of faults. The bolts are metric stainless steel. The washers that retain the wheels were bent on my unit. These needed to be flattened in order to work. The dolly comes with a 1-7/8" ball that has a 3/4" shaft. You may buy a 2" replacement for this ball but be sure to get the 3/4" shaft.

The biggest design fault involves the handle attachement to the frame parts. Two bolts attach the hollow-shaft handle to this frame. The upper bolt goes through the thick skid and this helps to prevent the hollow handle shaft from crushing when tightening the nut. The lower bolt should be threaded through the lock washer and nut when these are located inside of the handle. This will lock the handle securely to the frame. Such nut may be securely tightened without any possibillity of crushing the handle. You may then add the usual nut and lockwasher to the outside of the handle but you will need to buy this nut and lockwasher separately. Remember, this is a stainless steel M10-1.5 bolt. Don't overtighten this nut and distort the handle. You could add another nut inside of the handle and behind this nut. This will eliminate the possibility of crushing the handle. I didn't find this necessary as the nut previously installed inside of the handle [above] will do the job. See attached drawing for details.

Otherwise this is a good dolly for the price with free shipping. The wheels are 12" and provide good traction.

The concept is appealing, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. The ball location on the dolly is too low. It requires that you lower the boat jack every time you use it and then raise it again to connect to your vehicle. You have to be very careful not to get it over-center (handle too high). If you do, there is a real risk that the handle will flip up and the trailer tongue will fall to the floor. This happened to me. Make sure to leave your jack in the lowered position to catch the tongue in case this happens. Strongly built, just needs some modifications to be really useful.

      Comments about Overton's Heavy-Duty Trailer Dolly:

      We had a new pad put in next to the house for our boat. There is about 6" on each side to get the boat in. Using this dolly, we easily manuvered the boat back onto the pad. If you are on an incline though, best have some extra help.

      Pulling out to hook to the truck was extremely easy and the dolly allowed for very easy manuvering. Only one person required for flat or on a downward incline.

      For the money, well worth the cost.

        Comments about Overton's Heavy-Duty Trailer Dolly:

        This dolly has an attractive design to it and I have used it to move a 17-1/2 Ft fiberglass boat with a 150 HP motor on it. I was doing this on an asphalt surface but could move the boat by myself. This took a moderate amount of effort because of a slight uphill incline. I also have used this dolly on a 10 ft x 5 ft open motorcycle trailer with a loaded tool box mounted on the tongue and was able to move it easily by myself. I would highly recommend this product to any one who has to occasionally move a boat or cargo trailer by hand. It really reduced the amount of effort I had to expend to get the job done. One of my neighbors has already used my dolly and he wanted to buy it from me.

              The trailer tongue bears about 9-15% of the total weight of the load. The heavy duty dolly has a 600 lbs capacity. This product should work for you.
