Well I finally took some time to build my dolly . It took a little while to gather up the parts I thought I might need . I wasn't sure how I was going to build it , so I just winged it going by the picture on Artillian's website . (hope they don't mind I built my own) .

Looks good, was wondering about the weight rating on the casters, also where did you buy them?

It's actually "c" channel as a metal building would be made from . It is 4" and lighter than the 5" structural channel I was going to use . :bigthumb:

I had the backhoe on and needed to move my trailer . So I took the original fork dollies that I had previously made and used one of them to make a ball hitch to use on my forks . Burned a hole in one of them and attached the ball to it . Slip it on the fork and viola , trailer moving from the front . I won't be able to use on a loaded trailer as the ball is way out on the end of the fork , but It will move an empty trailer easy peasy . :cheers:
