The Vestil CARPET-45 portable carpet dolly has a steel frame, a blue powder-coated finish, V-shaped grooves, and two pneumatic wheels, and can be used to transport a roll of carpet. The dolly is made of steel, which is stronger than aluminum and more resistant to fractures than cast iron. The blue powder-coated finish resists scratches, chipping, fading, and other wear. V-shaped grooves in the frame help secure the carpet and prevent it from rolling off the dolly. The pneumatic wheels measure 4 inches wide and 16 inches in diameter, provide better traction than polyurethane wheels, are shock-absorbent, and can be used on uneven surfaces. This dolly has a load capacity of 500 lb., weighs 45 lb., and measures 20 x 26 x 60 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) This product is intended for use in professional and industrial environments.
Dollies are used to transport any of a variety of large, heavy objects, such as cabinets, crates, drum containers, furniture, heavy machinery, large appliances, rolls of carpet, or totes. Dollies are typically comprised of a low platform or deck mounted to caster wheels that may swivel for maneuverability and may include brakes to keep the dolly from rolling. Some dollies have adjustable frames to transport loads of different sizes. Others come with a pull handle to help the user move the dolly. Dollies can be used by professional movers or in warehouses or other industrial environments.
