Everything You Need to Know About Tow Dollies

Our tow dollies are meant to meet all your towing needs. They come with a long list of quality standard features that set them apart from other tow dollies. Select from the many options and outfit your tow dolly to match your specific towing requirements perfectly. Also, every tow dolly is backed by a 1-year written warranty to show our commitment to quality.

Here is what you need to know about our tow dollies:

  • We use an exclusive painting process that involves chemically cleansing and etching the bare metal before applying a durable powder coat finish. This extra effort keeps our dollies looking better longer.
  • 10,000 pound rated ratchets and adjustable straps securely fasten most 13” through 16” tires and wheels.
  • Our fenders are molded of ¼” thick polyethylene that eliminates metal fatigue problems common with steel fenders, and they will not scratch or rust. They feature oval waterproof lights that are mounted with an exclusive light retainer system to insure their secure attachment.
  • The carrying pan steers for your car by swiveling smoothly on polyethylene pads that are maintenance free.
  • Both safety chains have a unique s-hook safety closure added to insure their secure attachment to the tow vehicle at all times.
  • A factory molded plug-together wiring harness is used to eliminate the need for wire splices that often corrode and lead to wiring shorts. It is also poly loomed where exposed and carefully routed outside the fender well to prevent wires from being damaged by debris thrown up from the tire.
  • We use easy-lube hubs that ease the repacking of wheel bearings by eliminating the need for disassembly and are backed by a 1-year warranty.
    All of our dollies are equipped with new tires and wheels that are computer balanced to assure a smooth ride at all towing speeds.
  • Our ramps and carrying pan tilt rearward for loading and feature a raised tread grip pattern that gives extra traction, making the Tilt-Bed Loading safer and easier.

Discover Our Tow Dolly Options

It should be noted that a tow dolly is to be used to tow vehicles which are approved to be towed by the manufacturer. Many vehicles cannot be towed with the back wheels on the ground, as it may result in damage to the vehicle’s rear end or transmission. Always check with the car manufacturers recommendations. Furthermore, the vehicle must be registered and insured if any tire is on the roadway. In most states unregistered/ uninsured vehicles are not legal to be towed on the roadway.

Although the tow dollies come in two different widths 77” between the fenders, and 80” between the fenders, we only stock the 80” wide models, we can special order the 77” wide if the 3” difference is important to the purchaser.

The 80” wide models come in three different types:

 

  • No brakes – This type needs to be towed by a very substantial tow vehicle capable of being able to stop the towed vehicle safely. ( Note: brakes may be required by law in some states. )
  • Electric brakes – This type requires an electric brake controller in the tow vehicle to activate the brakes on the tow dolly.
  • Surge Brakes – This type has a special coupler on the front which acts as a brake actuation device. The resistance of the tow vehicle pushes on the brake actuator and applies the brakes on the tow dolly. (NY State does not approve of surge brakes on trailers other than boat trailers. )
