This is the same thing right? I thought I heard about this before on here. I recall seeing a video of one in action but I can't remember where.

I ordered this one last Thursday AM, It was shipped the same day and had it in the mail on Saturday. Haven't used it yet but it seems to be of good quality.

This style dolly's been around for years.  I've probably used it most for the Calypso pump replacement.  Sure does come in handy.

Since that one seems to be cheaper in cost, keep us posted if it works good when you go to use it :)

Bryan, they are the same. The more expensive one you linked is the older model without omnidirectional wheels and a few other improvements. That company is a reseller trying to rip you off. Fastcap is the manufacturer or main distributor

This will be my next purchase for my trucks. I've never seen one until now. Looks awesome. I'm all for saving my bad back!

Don't expect it to replace your dolly. Useful as a stand, not so much as an appliance mover, especially a large appliance on a carpeted surface. I imagine the wide mini ALLdolly http://www.alldolly....-mini-alldolly/ with the wide handle upgrade is better suited for moving heavy appliances... the wide handle accessory (24 inches) on the mini alldolly offers more support and will not "cave in" side panels as the speedolly is apt to do. It is also larger, so it can remove a washer out of a pan. But, think about the handle and it's potential damage to the glass door on a front load washer, not to mention a stove. At least the 24 inch handle on the mini alldolly should not cause as much damage as the smaller handle on the speed dolly.

Again, as a work stand, great.. but as an appliance mover my office was thoroughly disappointed. I'll take my furniture sliders over it any day.

I use Yeats hand truck, but I'm liking the idea of using it as a work stand for CABRIO pumps and to get machines out of plastic drain pans:)

Yep, as the topic title says, it is a work stand, not a moving dolly.

Have used this work stand in exactly these situations many times.  Works great!
