Question Blue tote wheels breaking - buying a dolly?

There's no sewer hookup at the seasonal site we are at, so our blue tote gets a fair bit of use. Other than lift it using ramps onto the back of our truck (potentially stinky situation imho!) are there any dolly's or set ups that we can use for carting the blue tote back and forth to the sani station? It would need to hook up to our truck as the sani station is too far to hand cart the blue tote to.

I have heard of people replacing the axle and heavier duty wheels.

I've seen a few strap theirs onto a regular metal furniture dolly

X2. You can buy wheels that are much larger and are inflatable.

Replace the plastic wheels with inflatable dolly wheels. The pneumatic wheels are quieter than the hard plastic wheels and offer some cushion to absorb bumps in the road. Cheap wheel assemblies can be found at Harbor Freight (maybe Princess Auto in Canada). I just had to drill a few holes in my tote axle to accept a cotter pin but it was easy to replace the plastic wheels.

I put a longer axle on mine and then larger pneaumatic hand truck tires on it, no flat tires.

Thanks, it looks like we will be putting a longer axle on and pneumatic wheels. I'll be ordering them from Princess Auto in Canada... any suggestions which wheels and axle I should be buying? That's the problem with ordering online, if you get something that doesn't fit, it's a pain to return and wait for another

I used 10" wheels and the factory axle. I think the pneumatic wheels are slightly larger in diameter that the plastic wheels. 10" Pneumatic Tire
