Snowmobile

Moving Your Sled with the Black Ice Snowmobile Dolly is as Easy as 1, 2, 3!

10/29/2021

With a unique design that you won’t find on other snowmobile dollies, the Black Ice Snowmobile Dolly uses the power of physics to substitute expensive lifts and hydraulics for good, old-fashioned manpower that doesn’t require a large footprint in your garage.

We trimmed the fat, kept the function

This dolly is intentionally designed as bare bones as we could possibly make it, to keep it lean and simple. Manufactured in durable, powder-coated 1.25" square steel tubing, it has two large front casters (each 5" dia. x 1.125" thick), one small rear caster (3" dia. x 1.2" thick), and a long lever handle to support the track and help maneuver the snowmobile once it’s fully lifted.

Scrap protection: The devil’s in the details

To protect your snowmobile and the dolly, we added scrape protection in two key locations: The crossbar and the lever handle. Tough plastic coating surrounds the cross bar; it might look like it’s part of the packaging, but it’s not. It’s a very intentional buffer to protect the dolly and snowmobile when the dolly is in use. Along the lever arm that doubles as your track rest, a 17.75” strip of rubber keeps studded tracks from scratching the dolly paint or damaging the steel.

How does it work?

It requires no electricity, batteries or hydraulics to operate. The long handle acts as a lever to elevate the sled, then slips under the back track so that both skis and the tracks are lifted off the ground and ready to roll. Here’s the step by step breakdown of how to use it:

  1. Slide the crossbar of the dolly under the body of the sled, right between the track and skis. The lever should be to be rear of the crossbar with the handle pointed towards the front of the snowmobile.
  2. Slowly start to lower the long lever towards the backside of the snowmobile. This motion will lift the crossbar using the casters as the fulcrum point. You may need to prop the casters with your shoe or a chock to prevent any unwanted movement as you perform this step.
  3. Once the caster on the lever makes contact with the ground and the front casters and crossbars are resting vertically, lift the rear of the snowmobile and internally rotate the handle so that it’s positioned at an angle underneath the track.
  4. Then, lower the track so that it rests directly onto the lever.

The compact design

This dolly folds up real long and skinny, roughly 6 ft. 10 in. x 20 in. x 10 in., so that storing it in your garage won’t require some creative spatial rearranging. It only weighs 35 pounds, less than your typical bag of rock salt, and is much, much easier to lift! Throw it up on a shelf, or lean it discretely up in a corner where it can stay out of way until the next time you need it.

We get jazzed up hearing the positive feedback

Curious how this sled has been working for real buyers? Read the reviews and see what our customers think about the design, ease of use, construction:

“Spending the extra money to purchase a nicer snowmobile dolly is worth it. In the past, I was afraid that someone would injure themselves trying to lift it up to turn and move it around in our garage. After using the dolly, I felt my stress and frustration with moving the snowmobile suddenly go away. It feels like I can finally enjoy what I'm doing instead of feeling averse to the task.”

“This dolly is extremely beefy and works effortlessly. There are a few videos on YouTube that show you just how easy it is to lift / move your sled. It’s ridiculous how easy it is to lift the rear of your sled to set onto the dolly. I’m a little older to trying to find ways to work smarter not harder. Buy it… you won’t regret it.”

– Anon

“If you've ever battled a snowmobile on a concrete floor you need this. I was going to build one myself but at this price I didn't think it was worth the effort. I'm glad I just bought it. Assembly was about 5 minutes. A little kid can move the sled once it's on this thing. I highly recommend it. (I paid full price and have no affiliation with the company)”

“These are GREAT! We ordered 2 snowmobile dollies. It is very difficult for us to use the little 3 piece dollies with the little wheels on them. Every time we hit an uneven surface (such as the concrete between the garage & driveway) the snowmobile would slide off. These dollies are so easy to use that we can lift and move the snowmobile all by ourselves. It also makes lifting the rear easier (much lighter) because of the balance the dolly offers."

– C

“It works just like the advertising says, but, I never thought about it being one sided. So the first time I went to use it the lift side of sled was against the wall.. It's a learning experience when you ever buy something new. From now now on I will install it under the sled while on the drive way, and roll it into the garage. It will do the job for me. Well built.”
