This trailer dolly is a good special purpose product. etrailer shipped it very quickly and had well packed it in an inner box suspended in a larger cardboard one. This was very good because mine had been punctured by an object during handling but it hadn't penetrated to the inner box. Nothing was missing from the package. I made the mistake of reading the instructions, which confused me at first because it appeared that some lock washers were missing but it turns out these parts were updated to a better system using lock nuts. Too bad the instructions aren't undated to match. After putting aside the instructions, I took out all the parts and figured how they must go together... this is really simple because there aren't very many parts. I started by putting on the wheels. The hardest part was figuring out that the handle bracket fits inside the support frame; this part appears to be symmetrical but would only fit one way. Of course, I had it wrong on my first attempt so by flipping it around it then fit snugly in place. I also found that the link bar fits under the cross brace rather than on top, which is how it looks in the detailed parts diagram. Once assembled, I found the dolly worked well enough on gravel for smaller trailer loads (under 1000 lb). My 5' x 10' utility trailer had been loaded with about 2000 lb of black earth in bags, so my first trial was to move that over a slightly irregular sloped gravel driveway. I figure the entire load including the trailker was about 2500 lb. No luck at all, I could barely move it. But lafter unloading I was then able to manuever the empty trailer quite easily. I bought this dolly to move my snowmobile about 20' into a storage building and expect no problems once I finish the 4' x 8' platform trailer I'm building for this purpose. 130994

The MaxxTow Trailer Dolly with 1-7/8" Hitch Ball - Black Powder Coated Steel - 600 lbs does a wonderful job. Before I purchased it, I was concerned that having the hitch ball above a single axle would yield a situation where it was unstable (as indeed it would be if you lifted the handle significantly and then let go). In usage, however, I observed no such instability. It is well engineered such that one can pull the trailer and then lower the handle and it will remain in a safe position. The materials are quite strong enough for the job; I observed no straining or bending of the ball supports nor axle. The pictures show it attached to our partially loaded utility trailer. The trailer is 1200 - 1500 lb and the motor generator inside is 1200 lb. The dolly allows me to move the trailer inside our building without running an internal combustion engine and fouling the air. On the road, with the utility trailer as a second towed vehicle, it will allow disconnecting the utility trailer from the first trailer and moving it out of the way to allow backing the first trailer. 306417

Trailer dolly MT70225 arrived a day late due to the adverse weather conditions in Nashville, TN. No problem. Packaging carton by Etrailer and the packaging by Maxxtow was outstanding. The only complaint I had was that the Parts List on page 5 of the Instruction Manual & Parts Catalog did not agree with hardware that was received. It appears Maxxtow has updated the type of hard-ware provided and has not updated the parts list. I at first thought parts were short. That could be confusing to some people. Cosmetic only. If they update assembly diagram and parts list they need to also update the instructions in Page 4, paragraphs 1 thru 7. 116531

Received in 3 days. eTrailer upgraded standard shipping to 3-day at no charge. Thank You, etrailer!!!! Mine was a discounted return because one of the tires wouldn't hold air. I took the chance that the problem would be solved by buying a new tube but when it was received, the valve stem of the leaky tire was loose. Snugged it up, inflated both tires (30 psi) and time will tell how well they hold air. There were no directions included. No problem, there is a small picture on the front of the box but the position of the V-support doesn't agree with holes on the handle. It's wrong. The larger picture is much more helpful, as long as eTrailer hasn't covered it with a shipping label (hint: eTrailer Shipping Dept.). With that picture, though, and using the appropriate length bolts, assembly is straightforward. Some have complained that there is too much side-to-side slop of the wheels on the axles. I'll solve this by putting a few 1# flat washers on the insides of the wheels to reduce the slop. I haven't used it yet to move my 2400# pop-up (tongue wt. ~350#) yet but the product is obviously well built and should be well up to the task. Can't wait to try it out. Love eTrailer for the quick shipping, great price, great product. Been doing business with them for a few years and always get great service. 285852
Easy assembly, excellent product for moving our pop-up camper around our yard. We bought this product to move the pop-up around our yard after we unhooked it from the car. This product makes the movement much easier. It did have a strong smell to it, which permeated our house. Though it was annoying, we didn't assemble it any faster or move it outside. 226898

I ordered a trailer dolly and the product was delivered as scheduled. A few days later, (when the weather got better), I was able to use the dolly and move my trailer - by myself! I didn't have to depend on other people to help me push the trailer. The product and the deliverly was excellent! 123260

I have been buying trailer and rack parts from etrailer for over 10 years and have gotten nothing but quality products and great customer service. This time was no different. I was going to buy the Harbor Freight brand dolly, but when I saw it at the store it did not appear to be very heavy duty and the quality was lacking. At Etrailer Tow-Maxx Dolly had good ratings and the biggest tires. I was a little concerned the Tow-Maxx Dolly was going to be of poor quality like the one at Harbor Freight, because it was the same price but it turned out the Tow-Maxx dolly quality was excellent and sturdy. Why 4 out 5 stars: The instructions and assembly illustration sucked. Open and assemble the dolly outside, the toxic chinese rubber smell is horrible. Wash hands after assembly. FYI all of the dollys etrailer sells are made in China. 163788

As many others have pointed out - poor instructions, so just look at the pictures, put the bolts in loosely to start, and then tighten everything. Moves our Scamp travel trailer (1300 pounds, 190 pound tongue weight) easily over uneven gravel pad that is grown in with grass. Would be an absolute breeze on a hard surface. Very well-built of heavy steel. Shipping was dang near instantaneous! 192115

Quality of dolly is excellent but assembly instructions are below average, particularly in the description of the hardware used. Fortunately the assembly was rather simple. I use the MaxxTow Trailer Dolly to move a 6x10 utility trailer in and out of a gravel covered parking area. GVW is 3200 lbs and tongue weight is about 400 lbs. The dolly works well for me and makes the maneuvering of my utility trailer quite easy. 168094
by: Bill D.06/30/2014
Heavy duty and appears well made. Just the ticket for pushing around my smaller enclosed utility trailer. 138432
by: Lynne & Jerry G06/24/2015
We ordered the MaxxTow trailer dolly and received it in 2 days, without paying express shipping charges. The package came with all powder coated product in plastic sleeves, very well protected. The assembly was very easy and took only 20 minutes. We tested it with our trailer on concrete and gravel and it worked VERY well! This is going to make dealing with our trailer much easier! 206917
Does the job. This is very well built. I was able to move this 600 lb. camper in and out of my shed. Easier to maneuver than with a small tractor in the tight space. The only thing I could want more out of this dolly is to have a park break. Having a slight slope I needed to put stop blocks inside the shed before moving the trailer in. I'd suggest having a second person help if you have any slope to your parking area. Glad I bought this. 317718
It arrived promptly with standard shipping. I found directions for assembly complete and not hard to follow. You just have to read them carefully. We are using this to move our Aliner A frame pop up camper trailer, which weighs 2000 lbs., around the driveway and into its car port. My wife and I were able to move the trailer successfully on our dirt and gravel surface. The only negative is that the rubber on the tires and handles stinks. The dolly has to live outside until it outgasses. The only problem I had with the instructions is that although they warn not to over or under inflate the tires, the proper inflation pressure is not mentioned anywhere in the instructions, on the tires or the box. I called etrailer about this and got a polite, prompt answer and now inflate the tires to 30psi. 223590

I did not get a chance to put it together yet but I was amazed as to how fast I received my order. If at any time I need parts or my travel trailer or small cargo trailer I will most certainly be plci it with you 208270
by: Emerson Dyer06/09/2013
I would recommend that before you send out a product from your location that you open the box and check its condition. The dolly will meet my needs nicely, but its condition was less than new when I received it. The nuts and bolts holding one of the wheels together were severely corroded and the tube was installed backward. I replaced the nuts, bolts and washers with stainless steel as I could find no galvanized in the proper size. The bearing race on that wheel had corrosion around the edge but appeared to work OK. It is disappointing to have to "fix" a new item before you can use it. I don't intend to send it back as it is now usable, but I'm sorry can't recommend your company to anyone else. 83918
by: Keith J.08/13/2014
I bought this dolly to reduce the physical effort required for my wife and I to move our trailer uphill on grass from the street to the back yard. I can now move down to the street by myself. Works great! I ordered the dolly and it was delivered to my door within three days. The company shipped UPS with a faster delivery than I even ordered. Can't beat that! Assembled the dolly on the tailgate of my pickup. No real problem, all parts fit together ok, though it did take about four different metric sizes wrenches and sockets for the bolts and nuts. This is simple assembly. I used the picture for assembly more then the written directions. Switched the 1-7/8" ball to a two inch ball. 146618

While I have yet to use the product (to help me move a log splitter around my property), I have to say the service from e-trailer was excellent. Within a day or so of placing my order, the trailer was shipped (at no additional charge). It arrived in good shape a few days later, was easy to assemble, and should be just the thing for my application. I was impressed by the service (and follow-up) by e-trailer, with email communication throughout the process. The only issue that I have with the product is that the wheels (or lubricant or plasticizer) have quite a strong odor, so we didn't keep the package or the product inside the house for long! This will probably diminish with time. 163728
This unit is higher quality than I expected. The powder coat is even and a has a nice crinkle finish. The instructions are a little vague, but the exploded view is helpful. Once assembled, it has a nice solid feel to the whole thing. I immediately used it to move a 2-place pwc trailer with pwc's (total wt ~2200lbs.) out of a storage garage. I had about 1 inch clearance to each fender, and maneuvering it was so easy. The trailer wheels were on concrete and the dolly wheels were on fairly level ground. Even so, it pulled much easier than I imagined. Being able to move this trailer in and out without using the car is worth the price of admission. 193349

I recently saw a similar trailer dolly in use by a friend. I went online and found the MaxxTow from etrailer.com. I have to say that after 100's of online purchases, I have never had the customer service and follow-up that I received from etrailer.com. Immediate information on order receipt and shipment was received from etrailer. The product arrived ahead of schedule and was very easy to assemble...10 minutes max. Dolly is actually more "heavy-duty" than I expected for the price. Similar dolly's were more than double the price I paid. Stop looking, pull the trigger for the MaxxTow and start saving your back. Cheers to etrailer! 110542
Great tool for a novice tow guy. Got tired of having trouble backing my cargo trailer under the carport at our old apartment. The braces for the carport, and the narrow street forced my vehicle onto the sidewalk every time. This dolly made it very easy to pull the trailer in and out of that small space, even when fully loaded. Now in a house, I can safely back my trailer into the garage without worrying about clearance. No need to start my car just to pull the trailer out and get to my tools. I only wish it had a small brake. But just tilt the dolly to drop the trailer foot down, and that works fine. 250270
When searching for a trailer dolly, I found numerous choices available online. After buying from e-trailer, I couldn't be happier with the choice I made. They have been a pleasure to deal with, shipped the product immediately, followed up on my order, and generally have done an outstanding job. The product was carefully and properly packaged and the trailer dolly and all hardware was complete and in good order upon receipt. This is a very nice product, sturdy and easy to assemble (took about 15 mins.). I would give this vendor and this product a 100% satisfaction rating. 109740
by: Tom C.12/10/2015
The item was delivered super fast and packaged great. I had one miscue during assembly by attaching the handle to the bottom frame first. But, once I identified my error, assembly was a snap. Pay close attention to bolt length and part fit. I use the dolly to maneuver my 14 foot Jon boat with a 15 HP motor into a tight space in my garage. This does the trick in a snap with very little effort. I highly recommend this product for anyone needing to move a boat, popup or whatever. A friend came over and saw it and immediately ordered one for his Dad for Christmas. 233530
Pretty much what I expected based upon etrailer.com description and prior customer reviews. I too found the product instructions out-of-date. The only useful part was the exploded parts view. I wish tire psi had been indicated but 18 psi works well for me. Overall, I am very happy with the dolly and so far it is an excellent value for the price paid. The entire purchasing process was seamless, the dolly arrived in 3 days with no issues. Once again, etrailer.com has proven to be the site to go to when I need quality products for a fair price. 205918
The dolly seems to be well made and rolls just fine, once you find out what the tire pressures are supposed to be. The assembly instructions were somewhat confusing but the secret is to not tighten any nuts & bolts until you have put the entire thing together and see that you did it right, then tighten everything. I have a complete set of metric tools so that wasn't a problem and all the parts were in the box. There is a strong odor from the tires but that is no problem once you keep it outside of the house. 175535
by: Ed A04/19/2015
Altho I haven't used the dolly yet I can tell it is excellent quality material which will hold up well. I will make moving my poontoon trailer around the yard a pleasant chore rather than the back breaker I am used to enduring. Only a couple of small compliants, one none of the Spring washer were included in the box. (total of 7 missing) Also, the directions leave a litle to be desired so put it all together before tightening any bolts. Great product for the price and I did shop around before purchasing. 186346
by: Konstantin Poplavskii11/30/2016
Good for the price. QC could be better -- during initial assembly, on one side of the axle I had to drill the clip hole a little bigger to allow the wheel to rotate freely. That took one star off. Other than that -- it does it's job. I was able to move my trailer with Nacra beach catamaran (about 900 pounds total weight) easily, on concrete pavement. Sturdy enough yet lightweight. Smart design with good balance point -- when you lower the handle, trailer tongue weight keeps it stable on the ground. 320767
Nice product; I can now move my 500 lb trailer up and down my sloped driveway and into my garage without (too) much effort. The large diameter wheels help reduce effort but unfortunately the tires can rub against the trailer hitch when making a very tight turn which can cause issues in tight quarters. 110080
by: Trailer Man07/03/2015
The product is great but like everybody has said the instructions are poor and incorrect. I moved my 6 X 12 utility trailer by hand the first few days that I had it. It is in my backyard. It about killed my back. I received this and put it together and it is great, it holds up the trailer with ease and I just have to push or pull. It is pretty easy even in the grass. I am 55 years old and I am pretty crippled up and this works great for me. I put a 2 inch ball on it. I recommend it. 209189
by: Sam the Painter - Iowa01/07/2014
I bought this dolly to move my log splitter in & out of my garage Because the gas lines & carb kept freezing up . I was surprised by the quality of the dolly & it was fun to put together & lots cheaper than surgery for a hernia. Plus I will use it to move my 14 ft fishin boat around while mowing this summer. I'm 54 so it was well worth the $ . It's a lot less hassle than trying to hook up to my truck. Thanx e trailer I will be back & recommend u 112148
by: Louis L.07/09/2016
Appears to be a fine product. Easy to assemble although it would have been nice to have the instructions to be more explicit about which length of bolts to use. Otherwise my son and I were able to assemble the item without any problems. He especially just looked at the diagram. It worked well on helping to move our popup camping trailer for a short distance. Still to early to say if this is an excellent products but appears to be at this stage. 269906
by: Rich D07/29/2016
Went together easily and works great even on the gravel, dirt and grass where my boat trailer is stored. Good price for a good product. Recommend the following changes to the instructions: 1) Tools needed. 2) Recommended tire pressure. 3) Put the ball on last instead of first. 4) Don't over-tighten the bolts on the handle to avoid crushing the tube. Otherwise, the instructions were not too bad and the dolly was assembled quickly. 277506

Maxxtow Trailer Dolly - 1-7/8 Ball - Black Steel - 600 Lbs- order arrived to my home very quickly (within a few days of order). Trailer dolly was very easy to assemble, is well made, fit and finish is very good. Have a 74" by 14' 850 lb utility trailer. Dolly makes moving the trailer from behind my garage to the driveway very easy. rolls very easily through the grass and over small bumps. Would by this product again. 200794
by: Matt R.09/30/2016
I use this to move a trailer and 2 boats around in my barn. It is good for re-positioning your trailer in tight spaces. I am rolling on crushed granite, so it takes 2 to move the 19ft power boat. The 8ft cargo trailer and 15 ft sailing dingy I can handle on my own. I had a cheaper Harbor Freight version of this, and upgraded to this one for the larger wheels, which keep it rolling better. It is also much better quality. 301919
by: Gary T.05/13/2015
The dolly was exactly as advertised. Put it together in a matter of minutes (after getting rid of the instructions!) just using common sense. Was able to maneuver my 3,000 lb gross, 300 lb tongue weight travel trailer with minimal effort over asphalt. Shipping (5 days) was reasonable given that it sat in the UPS facility over a weekend. Am very satisfied with eTrailer and will not hesitate to do business with them again. 192576
by: Tim T07/16/2016
Good product. Sturdy and heavy duty. Wish it was a few inches taller at the ball. Seems to be too low with the trailer hitched to it. The assembly instructions are poor and the split pins to hold the wheels on were not in the box. I had some fortunately in my workshop. Seems to move the trailer around well and does the job way betting than manual lifting. Would recommend this if you have a small trailer. 272643
by: doug m.07/03/2015
very pleased overall with product 1. assembled in 15 min 2. strongly built 3. I moved 3000 pound trailer by myself on first try 4. arrived as promised with good packaging minor nit: assembly instructions awkward. diagram small enough to be ambiguous. suggest single 8x10 instruction sheet with big diagram on one side and text instructions on other. overall, very satisfied. 209031
by: Bill S.05/27/2015
I received the dolly in good shape. Packaging was excellent. Sturdy build on the dolly itself. Assembly was fairly straightforward. Durable finish should last a lifetime. I have a 5x8 enclosed utility trailer that moves around with ease now. The wheels and tires should be more than needed for my application. All in all a great product for a great price. I only wish I had bought it with the trailer! 198137
by: Bob B.08/07/2014
Dear Nick, The Quality Control on this product is lacking! I had to drill the two upper holes on the handle. The ones on the bracket were there, but someone forgot the ones on the handle. Additionally, I had to go to the hardware store and get bolts that were long enough to fit those holes. Other than that, the product seems to work OK. Your customer service demeanor was great. Thanks 144974
by: David L.04/21/2015
This trailer dolly does the trick for my 1500lb smoker trailer! Happy I order this dolly from E trailer, 12" tires, sturdy made frame and easy to assemble! E trailer is hands down one of the best and fastest delivery online companies I've ever dealt with! Ordered these two items Thurs. morning, was delivered Fri. evening... That's what I'm talking about! Customer service is off the chain! 187055
I'm a satisfied customer. Took me about 45 minutes to put it together, including pumping up the tires. Helps to have some metric wrenches. People who say the holes don't line up don't know how to pull or push on the bent metal parts to get them to fit. Just push it into place and bolt together. Works well for our 14 & 16 foot skiffs, my wife was seen rearranging the yard this afternoon. 191696
Dolly came within 5 days and in extent condition. It was very simple to put together only took 10 minutes,only draw back is I wish it would have come with a 2" ball. I haven't used it yet but I do believe it will serve the purpose I have planed for it and that is moving my 6x12 enclosed trailer around when we go to events and the space provided for me is very tight to maneuver. 289450
Appears to be rugged enough. Have only used it once and it worked. The pictures in the assembly manual are too small to be useful for assembly. Guessed wrong the first time. The wheels are a sloppy fit - too much space between the cotter pin and the wheel. Probably would give it a '5', but it is just a simple device that is going to work o.k. - no reason to be excellent. 74195

Received the Trailer Dolly in a timely fashion following order. I have not assembled as yet and cannot respond with a positive review. I do have a con remark as to the odor of the package. A very pungent odor emitted from the package and I suspect it is coming from the trailer tires or the packaging. Would like to know if the origin of the odor is known. Thanks, JRF 216861
by: GALE T.12/16/2013
Wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the Trailer Dolly. I have a log splitter that I need to move around and the Trailer Dolly has really lightened my work load to move Splitter. I would recommend the purchase of your Trailer Dolly to anyone who is in need of one. Price us very reasonable. The follow up from your staff is excellent! Thanks for the follow up! 110201
by: Frank H.03/30/2016
We purchased the tow dolly to use to move, believe it or not, an automobile tow dolly. Our auto tow dolly was equipped with surge brakes and other features that made the dolly heavy. When connecting or removing the auto tow dolly from our motorhome we used this device for leverage and to help manage the weight. We found the dolly to be worth every dollar spent. 242384
by: Pete S.03/08/2015
Very sturdy! I would have given this 5 stars if it were not for the poor instructions. A handy person can get it figured out. There is no mention at all of the proper tire inflation. Load range B is usually 35 pounds so that is what I used. Again, a well built product and well worth the price. PS: eTrailer is a joy to work with! Pete 177535
by: Tom W01/16/2015
This is a great product for moving a small trailer. It handles lifting of the trailer tongue very easy and maneuvering of the trailer a breeze. The only complaint was the assembly instructions were not very well written and the parts list was terrible. Anyone with a little mechanical knowledge can assemble it without the instructions. 169085
Solid, well-built dolly. Quality control could be better- mine was missing the instructions and one tire had a leaky tube. But fairly easy to figure out how to assemble, and etrailer customer service arranged for a new tube to be shipped to me right away. I looked at a lot of these, and this one is the best bang for the buck. 168892
Product arrived in less than a week. Appears durable enough and assembled in less than 5 minutes with 2 common tools. Hooked it up to my Wellcraft 160 CCF and it picked up it up in a snap and easily moves it around. Great workhorse in a small package. I had concerns if it was going to be strong enough. Doubt no longer! 215691

I ordered the MaxxTow Dolly last week. I received it 3 days later! The item was exactly what I wanted and the Service I received (including all notification of order received, item shipped, etc.) was above what I expected. This merchant is honest, professional, and they certainly have earned my future business. Hans H. 215563
