Just received my AllDolly today and I must say that is one fine piece of equipment. Precision made, very clean, and very sturdy. I am looking forward to that Bosch hinge job later this week to try it out.

The AllDolly is a must, even for companies with multiple techs.  It will pay for itself in the first few jobs.  It's a little tricky for units that are caddycorner or against a wall, but still well worth the investment.

It is a great tool!  I went for the tall break down model and it works well and stores easy.

I went for the standard tall version. Folded up it doesn't take up too much space and looks like it will fit right up against the van wall.

I keep procrastinating, and then every time I run into a wall oven I wish I had it.  I'll order it tomorrow.  ;)

The bad part is, as far as I could tell there is no competition!  I searched for alternatives and found none.

I have used it about 7 - 8 times now. The first time you are on a job alone and need to get to a thermal fuse on the back of a wall oven it has paid for itself in my opinion. I went ahead and got the tall alldolly, helped me get a stacked dryer off. I know it is expensive, but I would definitely recommend everyone buy at least one of these. I thought about getting the one that breaks down, but the tall version folds up and fits right up against the wall of my van perfectly. Doesn't take up much room at all.

I think it's worth it.  If you operate solo there really aren't any alternatives if you have to pull a built in oven or unstack a dryer (tall model will do this).  As mentioned above I have the breakdown tall model with the optional plywood shelf and I carry it in my Honda Fit at all times.  You never know when your'e going to be surprised with a stacked dryer or an add-on call for an oven.

I think the boot camp will be more useful in the short and long run.  Knowledge will always trump strength.  Customers will be understanding when you tell them you need a second set of hands for the wall oven or stackable dryers.

I still use brute force on stack dryers and never had a problem.  But I have turned down a few oven jobs because I didn't have an all dolly.

 

The only thing keeping me from it, is that I think the price is high for what you get.

I know the AllDolly don't look like much, Brother nawlins, but it's worth it.  And you're gonna need it come November for those lucrative wall oven repairs.  Charge accordingly, and it will pay for itself.

I think this will work. I downloaded the app.

Or, on the other hand.....

Troubleshooting modern appliance's complex electronic and electro-mechanical systems is the methodology in which one must, by using analyitical techniques and the process of elimination, determine the cause or causes of a specific failure. Rarely does this cause of a failure directly present itself for you to see.

So.....To be better equipped to troubleshoot, you will need:

1.) To follow this: Safety first and foremost. Heed to and trust your instincts.
2.) Basic hand tools.
3.) A decent DVOM meter. Buy one. Borrow one. You need one.
4.) Last, but certainty not least, common sense. Most of us have it. Slow down and use it.

Now, let's have some fun!

ZIG:
Hope is the power that gives a person the confidence to step out and try.
Success is the maximum utilization of the ability you have.

N.M.:
It always seems impossible until it's done.

For those that will fight for it...FREEDOM..has a flavor the protected will never know.

I built my own out of wood, a good set of casters and ratchet straps, in the slow part of the winter. Built the bottom platform with four mortises(square holes) for the uprights.  Put dadoes in the uprights every few inches, from about 6 inches to about 40 inches (not exact dimensions). Used 3/4 inch particle board for the top platform, ( It was a scrap piece from Menards, $5.00, A good stiff plywood would be good. The ratchet straps hold it all together good and tight. tested it with plenty of weight. it is strong.  I've only needed it a few times, but it works great. Easy to assemble and disassemble. Takes up about 3ftx3ftx6" of space. I do not carry it unless I need it.  Easy to move around and stable. Cost was under fifty dollars plus time. The biggest time drain was cutting the dadoes, but it did not take that long.

I love my all dolly, just used it today to change squirl cage blower on 400lb KA wall oven microwave combo. Don't chinch on tools guys, nice ones save time and back pain, keep us working and make us more $$$. As with any good quality tool, use it a few times and it'll pay for itself!

Holding up good. I do not need it very often, but when I do it is as Maytag says, a back saver. I do not know if it will hold 400lbs. That must be a commercial unit, or something I haven't run into yet. I have done a few dryers and built in ovens.

 

I will try to get you some pictures up in the next couple days. I have to learn how to do it.

I think we have 6 of them floating around the shop now, use one on every wall oven.  Worth its weight in gold especially for a warranty guy who is getting paid flat rates.  Even if a manufacturer paid extra labor for a wall oven needing 2 men it still isn't worth the hassle of having to coordinate 2 people to meet a timeframe and work it into the schedule.  With the dolly you always have your second man with you.
