trailer mover options?

hey all,

need a mover and looking at mr shifta type thing or a replacement jockey wheel type.

has anyone got one and how do you rate it?

unfortunately mr shifta no longer sell them but they come up on ebay fairly often so may need to go that route.

need to move a 2000kg 4 wheel rig on flat concrete so happy to look at other options???

cheers

Yea I know just waiting on the Rhu folk picking it up. They're already messed up by missing times with JWM. I'm relying on people moving the rib as I'm down here in south Ayrshire. Keep your eyes of my winch!! B

Yea the first one dubrus you could manage on the flat but it dug in if trying any tight turns but better than mandrualic on the flat though but I expected better for the money at that time

thanks bud, the 2/3 are meant to be much better but i understand it has limits, for what i need i think it will be ideal....there is one for sale in bolton so may need to make the 4 hour journey to fetch it.

my potential new storage place needs tubes folded in and there is about 2" either side to spare due to length including the car attached so a mover would solve that and help my back out.

my boat is an absolute pig to man handle, it feels all of its 2000kg if you manually try to move it.
