this is a fantastic product. was very easy to put together and is extremely sturdy. I did go a little bit over kill for my motor weight but is worth it for the future of getting a larger motor. will tell everyone about this product and web site as well.
purchased a new motor for my john boat but it allows me to remove and keep the motor inside when not in use. easy to assemble and store when not in use. sturdy and also allows me to carry other items.
I had to move and work on my 40 HP Johnson that I had to store on a heavy-duty palette because of the weight. This 1987 engine for restoring weighs approximately 200 pounds. I thought I would have to build one by hand, but when I put in outboard motor carts, this product came up. I put it together in 30 minutes (I ordered the one up that handles over 300 lbs) and it is solidly manufactured. I had to forklift the engine in the air in a sling and swing it in on to the boat motor bracket on the dolly, but once I bolted it to the solid plastic plank provided within about 15 minutes, I was able to wheel the heavy engine around the shop smoothly. Now it is mobile and I can put a couple wooden blocks against the large back wheels, and it is a stand where I can work on restoring this brute! Excellent product, can't say enough good things about it. Well worth the money. Don't try and make one yourself when you have this at the simple ordering on-line!
This Outboard Motor Dolly Stand OMC-315 is Really Well Built, Sturdy and Easy to put together at a Bargin Price . Rolls around effortlessly with my 1999 Mercury 115Hp , 20" leg , 2 stroke outboard . The handles are positioned perfectly to handle the stand comfortably and long enough to wrap the motors wiring harness , cables and control to keep everything together. Shipping is fast. I Highly Recommend this stand and DiscountRamps.com and Look forward to doing business with them again in the future .
Love this stand, easy to put together and best of all I can roll my motor around the garage from place to place where needed to be. I put my 25 hp. four stroke on this stand and move it with ease. Now I don't have to work around my motor, I just simply move the motor. I'm glad I bought this stand, or might I say roll around stand.
This cart was delivered ahead of scheduled time. The product was easy to assemble. Great outboard cart!
I bought this for a 15 hp 4 stroke (I know a little overkill) but bigger is usually better. Shipping was quick, all the parts were there, it took about 15 minutes to assemble, and overall it seems like a pretty good value. I looked a some of the competitors and for the same capacity ratings you will pay a lot more. It is made overseas so it's that type of quality, not bad, not great, for my personal use it will do just fine.
I have been taking this motor on and off our boat for years and just carrying it. I decided to buy your motor dolly and boy this will make a back breaking difference in the future!!!
Very fast shipping. Impressed that all the parts were wrapped in plastic and bolts in Ziploc bag with some attached to brackets for easy inventory verification. Have received some products from China before that were no where near the quality of this package. Kudos for quality supplier. Functionality is pretty basic and works as designed.
The product is functional but the design could easily be improved to accommodate small motors (typically to 6 hp) with "short shafts" used in small fishing boats. With the present design, there is a 6.25" clearance from the bottom of my motor's skeg to the floor under the carrier. This unnecessary extra elevation makes the motor less stable (against tipping) on the stand and it requires lifting the 50-60 lb portable motor unnecessarily high (a real "ball buster"). It appears that the present elevation of the plastic block was selected to accommodate "long shaft" motors that are typically used as auxiliary motors for motor trolling with big boats. Your design could be easily and cheaply improved by providing one extra hole in each of the "upright tubes" (items 3 and 4) spaced 4" lower that the present lowest hole for the plastic block. This would result in 3 holes spaced at 4" intervals in each upright tube for attaching the block. That would allow your customer to select the most appropriate block elevation for his/her carrier based on a simple measurement of the motor dimension from the bottom of the skeg to the top of the transom mount. In the case of my 55 lb "short shaft" motor, assembling the block 4" lower would still leave me 2" of clearance beneath the bottom of the skeg.
