    Hi Everyone

    I was thinking about getting a Motorized Trailer Dolly. Something portable but not too expensive that will work on dirt. Trailer Max weight is 4500lbs and tongue is 400lbs.

    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    These have been discussed before. I think Amazon had a decent selection

    have you tried switching your tongue wheel to a double-wheel setup? On my Aliner I removed the lousy single wheel, used a long bolt for a new axle, and added two after market wheels with ball-bearing hubs. Better on dirt and gravel.

    I've always thought a snowblower w/o the auger drive and shoot could move a trailer around. The drive system runs a separate belt on most units. Something like 8hp will remove you from your feet, if you don't know what you're doing... I could see it

    I think if you search, you'll find one member tried/ did this a few years ago..
