That red nightmare that six uses should be banned :)


OP - the red nightmare posted above was exactly the one you borrowed from me at Freeplay (unless you were using the yellow one, I cannot remember).

I actually bought the red/black dolly from Mick/NumSix many years ago and it has served us well for many years. Granted, there is a bit of a learning curve required to use it withour maiming one's self, but once you have it figured out it is the best dolly money can buy!

Mr. Six Sir!
 For pins you would have to take the rear legs off, drop down to the floor move under the pin then tilt I am thinking. Is that correct?
 Does anyone besides me use the old wico or wico style step on the level and up she goes cart anymore?
 Where did you obtain said space aged manipulator of all things ball related you wat to protect?

I use a pinball dolly to move pinball games?

If i need to move them far I take the legs off and move them on their backs at which point this dolly works just fine.

Haw, I liked that one the best so far. Maybe it is banned, shows Discontinued.

Some people are just too weak to use it. :P

It works fine. Been using it for 4+ years.. never let me down and built like a tank.

Well that's it, you need to be mindful of the position of the front wheels when you stand the game back up.. that's all.

You have our 2nd one. We bought it for a show where we had to move 40 games in a short period of time and having 2 of these was worth it.. ended up selling the 2nd to mick afterwards.

I know mick hated it because he dropped a game off the side because he didn't listen/pay attention. Not the dollys fault -- i've never come close to dropping a game with mine.

I borrowed the yellow one :). I learned my lesson on the red one watching those small wheels turn inward dumping a game on mick not once, but twice.

You know me well  :P.

I learned my lesson... almost destroyed my leg when an attack from mars fell off the dolly years ago. That was it for me.

I dont move stuff as much as most of you though.

I also have come to the point of also utilizing the wolf of grey as much as possible. Its interesting that when I use said wolf of grey I never hurt myself or am layed up with muscle spasms in the back. It slao doesnt make my busted 11 th vertabrae hurt.

Yep, that’s the modern knock-off of the classic Wico pinball dolly.  Highly recommended. 👍👍

The fact it has hydraulics and better wheels makes it very tempting. Anyone want to buy my HF lift, cheap?

my hand truck has been awesome. my only incident, was some ass that pushed a game sideways when i was
just inside their moving truck. code 1 dispatch landed on my leg. the irony was bit humor-ish, though:
WTB:  Goin' Nuts (10)              Bigfoot (2)
                Cabin Fever (1)          Nosferatu (10)
                      Richie Rich (1)        Wrath of Olympus (6)
         
       ...and basically anything 50% off eBay/painside value
