Anyone use these Haul-Master 1500# car dollies? Found four for $50 on CL. Just wondering if they are worth $50.

Anthony,
They look quite similar to the ones I got from Harbor Freight. Same weight capacity. HF is selling them for 2 for $54.99. This is the first time I've used them and they are good for moving the car around. Sounds like a good deal.

Anthony,

My B is sitting on a set of these right now; the engine is out for a clutch replacement. The dollies make it very easy to move the B around the garage. If you buy the set of dollies, oil the dollies' wheel axles before using. Nice garage tool, great price.

Thanks for the replies. I am going to pick them up for my Bs. Trying to stuff a short bed pickup and 2 MGBs in a two car garage I am building.

I have a set, not exactly like the one you posted, but similar.
I found them indispensable for moving the car around, specially while being worked on. I usually work alone and have no one else to help, so the dollies makes it a one-man job to move the car around.
Also useful to move the car sideways, which usually takes quite a bit of maneuvering if done with the steering wheel while pushing.

It all depends if you have a need for them, go for it.

I have a need for them. I raised the question about this particular brand being worth the asking price. As we all know, some things aren't worth the price no matter how cheap it is.

I have a set from HF. The casters on mine are crap Have tought of replacing the casters with something better but when I price good casters, 16 of them it get very expensive fast. Good casters are the secret of good car dollies.

They appear identical to the set I bought from Harbor Freight so $50 for four sounds good. Work great! I also use them to move furniture around.

I read about the casters being kinda crappy. I have plenty of grease. The car I would have them under is still a work project. My other B is drivable. I need something to make it easier to shove my project car against the wall so I can get the other two vehicles in and out. Just need to move it around when I'm working on it. I am pretty sure these are the same that HF sells.

I bought a set from HF. Greased them liberally and they have worked great. For $50 - go for it.

For $50 go for it, if you only have one (not heavy) car to use them with they are fine. I have a barn full of non running project & parts cars, a few years ago I bought a full set (4) of the self jacking Ranger dollies from Summit. One of the best purchases I ever made, allowed me to make a lot of extra space.They are also nice when pulling a vehicle with locked up brakes out of the corner of someone's garage.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. CL is Craig'sList. It's a buy and sell website. This is just one set from a single local seller.

ANTHONY The ones with the Steel wheels work fine. The HF PAINO HOLLYS, with the black hard rubber wheels go flat after awhile with weight on them. Pass on those. smileys with beer
