    How removable? Take the cotter pin out and take the wheels off? Or something different?
    BTW, why do you need to remove the wheels? Just asking as it's probably a really good reason.

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    I dont know who makes it but there is one that accepts the big removable wheels, a second set, up higher on the truck for going over soft ground or getting that extra oomph over a raised door sill.

    I know that's not an answer but I'll ask some buds.

    We have one at our shop. Don't know the name. Going to the shop tomorrow morning if it's their I will get some information, could be out on a job. Wheels that can be adjusted to get the right balance point. I believe it's rated 500lbs. We have had 700 lb sections on it with no problem

    Google "Wesco Superwheel" there about $110 and worth every penny. Northen Tool has them and I am sure others sell them

    That's the puppy.
    Did you paint the green and red?
    Is that pic recent with the snow? Brrrr.

    That was last season when it was new.
    Did not paint it green.
    I did put some black stains on it.

    Thanks all, I did locate YEATS APPLIANCE DOLLY MFG CO LLC as well, just ordered one. Those big wheels are the jam! I was so happy I ordered all of the little accessories too.

    That dolly is like having 2 extra guys helping.
    I wouldn't move a boiler without it.
    The big wheels help on flat ground and getting over small steps.
    You have to remove them going up or down multiple steps.

    Enjoy!

    yes we have the Escalara with Big Wheels, but we don't always want to haul around the heavy stair climber if it's not needed.

    Last time I used ours we removed a Burnham V11. I think those sections go 500-600 lb. It was an easy one, out of the boiler room flat, down a hall and onto a loading dock. You could push it loaded with a section with one hand
