Anybody have any information regarding the Sure Grip Dollies? Are they any good?

Thank you.

I bought a set, they work as advertised, but I had a wheel break in half. I didn't abuse the wheel, came out to move the sled after it had sat for a while and started to go and the wheel fell off. That part wasn't impressive. YMMV

If you have a picked track though, I would think you'd have to use a track dolly. Driving it around like they show in some videos would destroy your pavement. I made my own T dolly, for around $70 total. Love it. Easy to load and unload and the sleds stays put on it. Just can't "drive" around on it.

Re: Sure Grip Dollies

Yeah studs are bad on cement. Couple years ago we kept our sleds under our carport (cement) and there is deep scratches from where my step dad parked it/ took off.

I tore up a couple of feet on my driveway driving off my dolly. Man those picks dig deep!

The only problem I see with the Sure Grip Dollies is that you cannot move the front of the sled sideways.

I have a set of aluminum dollies I bought several years ago, that are still in service today. The wheels on mine rotate 360 degrees in any direction, which allows me to turn my sled around in the garage in a 10' diameter space. I can park parallel to a wall, then just push the sled tight up againt the wall. You could never do that with the Sure Grip Dollies. I can (and do) drive around on mine like they did in the Sure Grip Dollies video, except I cannot "really" steer, because the wheels rotate 360.

Same here. All of my wheels spin 360. None are fixed. Makes moving it around very easy.

I have three pairs of the rotating ones. It's nice to be able to steer sometimes, so I bought the Sure Grips. You are right, you don't move sideways. Oh well, that's why I replaced the front bumpers too

I bought a set a couple years ago. I've only used them 3 or 4 times but they've worked fine so far. Hope the wheels don't break in half for me!
