The Scoop Dolly makes loading or unloading these top heavy objects a breeze. With the optional leverage handle, other heavy objects like bureaus and furniture (3 ft. tall or more) can also be loaded easily. The unique design allows the dolly to operate like a hand truck on a dolly. Unlike standard hand trucks the object can be moved in any direction making long objects easy to move. Once loaded and tilted back, the load on the Scoop Dolly remains stable without needing to be supported by the operator.
Saw Trax 3074 Full Size Panel SawScoop Dolly
With necessity being the mother of the scoop dolly, it was originally designed to move our 10 ft. long, 94 in. tall, 500 lb. crated panel saws onto the freight trucks. This was typically done with one person on a forklift and one person steadying the load at the far end. This was a tricky dance between the forklift operator and the “point” man. With the weight of the forklift entering a truck, the point man could be crushed by the panel saw falling over or with a slip of the foot of the forklift operator. So, the President of Saw Trax came up with a design that has been refined for many other applications.
The “Scoop Dolly” has tilt legs that can adjusted to vary the angle of the load to safely keep the center of gravity over the dolly. The dolly has omni-directional casters so the load can be moved in any direction.
