Collins Hi-Speed®Dollies


For more than 40 years, the unique dolly innovations of Collins Manufacturing Corp. are quite numerous. Besides being the first to invent an articulating dolly that actually lifted a car off the ground, without the aid of jacks, in 1972, thereby changing the towing industry worldwide, Collins was also first to introduce:

* 1977: Safety Ratchets: protects towers from injury while lifting vehicles with dollies
* 1986: Safety Locks: helps prevent dollies from dropping while towing
* 1995: Aluminum Axles: now the industry standard, at only 22 lbs. per axle
* 2000: Greaseable Hubs: more convenient serviceability
* 2006: Aluminum Greaseable Hubs: up to three times lighter than steel hubs
* 2006: Replaceable Components: the only dolly that can be repaired on the spot
* 2006: Lightest-Weight Dolly: as light as 48 lbs. per side
* 2007: Aluminum 8″ Wheels: first ever in the world! Five-hole, polished, mags, Cool
* 2009: Two-Toned Zinc Plating: with polished aluminum mag wheels = Eye Candy
* 2010: Square Aluminum Pry Bar: tower input gives back to the industry @ 5.9 lbs.
* 2011: Tow Cradles: From Tow Solutions, transports vehicles without wheels and tires
* 2012: Aluminum Carrier Dolly System: addresses issues of loading cars on carriers

Collins offers the heaviest-duty dollies, rated at 4,280 lb static-load capacity. Between their tried and proven Hi-Speed®Dollies for the highway and their new patent-pending Carrier Dolly System, all dolly-towing bases are now covered.

Collins’ latest innovation, the aluminum Carrier Dolly System, is quite simple where it solves all the problems of Carrier loading; all-wheel drive vehicles, hybrid vehicles, and electric vehicles, whose wheels are locked by the transmissions and won’t roll, are now easily moved with the carrier dolly system. The dolly lifts the vehicle and the aluminum tow bar hooks to the dollies. The winch cable is then hooked to the tow bar, not the vehicle, and pulls the dollies up the flatbed. The vehicle simply rides the carrier dollies. This is especially handy when there is no place to hook onto various vehicles — in fact, nothing ever touches the vehicle.

With the tow bar inverted and fitted to either of the carrier dollies, it now becomes a motorcycle dolly for winching up the carrier, as well.

For vehicles without wheels, the Tow Cradle works perfect with the carrier dollies. Rolling the vehicle up the bed is a far superior system vs. dragging it up and then back down the bed, damaging both bed and vehicle.

Since experience, good and bad, is the premium schoolmaster, hindsight truly becomes the best vision forward. With four decades of hindsight and several patents awarded, Collins is the undisputed leader in dynamic dolly design.
