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.
Got my AllDolly

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 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.

So how you liking the all dolly? I'm thinking of buying one just not sure how use full it will really be. Worth the cash?
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.

So do I purchase the dolly or go to boot camp?

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 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.
