Thanks for the info! DH has been thinking of one - we plan to keep the TT in our driveway which is very long, but we also live in a residential neighbourhood and it may be, well, interesting to try to get the TT in

If you do get it, and you have a slope, get the motor upgrade and the brake controller. If your driveway is paved, the stock tires will work fine. I bought a battery box and rv battery for the power dolly and am using my own smart charger to charge it. What I like about this unit is that the parts can be sourced locally. I purchased the 360L which is worth the little extra.

Can you just rent one from a construction rental store in your town?

I haven't seen anyone that rents one. Maybe, I can rent mine out and make my money back

I had problems getting the ball mount to fit properly. It would not go on straight and allow the machine to pivot out. I added piece of a large washer to the bitch to allow the ball mount to tighten up flush and have had no more issues. The 360XL model pushes our X213 up a mountable curb with no problems. I had to put down a steel grating as it would just dig holes as soon as it reached the gravel though.

Mine came with the thrush washer, it is critical for tightening to the coupler. Overall I am pleased with my decision to purchase it.

I have a PowerCaster that I used with a tandem axle boat trailer for years. It worked great except on wet grass as was mentioned above. Plenty of torque to move my 4,500 pound boat and make sharp turns where the wheels would slide.

I do know I may try a hitch on the front of my F150 first to see if I can get away with that instead of spending $1500 on a power dolly. I would like to hear how it works for you and your needs when you get it delivered.
Good morning! Did you ever try a front-mount hitch on your F150? I was also wondering if this might be an option, however you still need to factor the lenght of the truck when parking in tight spots. Please let me know what you went with. Thanks!

No I have not added the front hitch yet. Had plans to do so after I made a clearing at camp for my TT but haven't gotten around to that either LOL. Guess I've been too busy traveling with the TT. May get around to it this summer though and if I do I will send you a PM.

Thanks! After pricing out different power dollies and exploring the option of building my own, a front hitch seems to make the most sense... if it works. It has many different applications too. Good luck!
