We here at Recreational Necessities pride ourselves in creating quality products. These are just some of the great testimonials we have received.
From time to time I had seen the video for the SureGrip dollies, with people ripping around the yard or driving a sled right up into a trailer. Quite honestly I was intrigued, but a bit skeptical.
I thought I would give the SureGrips a try. The product showed up promptly in a deceivingly small box. After opening it and looking at the parts I was VERY impressed. The parts were made well, seemed over-engineered (in a good way), and had an excellent fit and finish. Once the dollies were under the skis I fired up the motor and prepared to back out. I tentatively gave it some gas and backed down the ramp. It backed over the gaps and cracks with ease. In fact, it actually backed out easier and more smoothly than it would without the dollies. The thing I noticed right away was that I was able to actually steer the sled with precision while backing out.
After unloading I had fun driving the sled around the driveway in August. The ski dollies never slipped or moved and gave me full steering capability. Once parked in the garage I put the track dolly under the track and was able to rotate the sled around as desired. Loading the sled back in the trailer was as easy, and fun, as unloading.
My past experience was that conventional dollies suffer from some main issues.
1) other dollies come off the skis easily, having to keep putting them back on.
2) pushing the sled around by hand is the only option that really works well, sometimes requiring a helping hand on steep driveways and such.
5) Wheels that swivel on all three points (skis and track) can actually be difficult to deal with in some situations (poor tracking, etc.)
D 6)Dollies and wheels are often under-engineered or made of plastic that can crack and break.
Sometimes you come across a product that you really like and are pleased with. Less frequently you find one that you love and wish you had come across years ago. SureGrips are one of these products. They make the chore of loading, unloading and moving a sled around almost effortless, saving time and your back. They are extremely well built and worth every penny.

“Thank you for producing such a useful product. My employees and my customers really like them! We use the SURE GRIPTM Dollies daily in our shop for running sleds down the alley, to the gas station, and to the car wash when snow is limited. They save my employees endless hours of work and back strain.”

Moving Sleds Around?
How do you move a snowmobile when there is no snow on the ground?
Do you just drive them (with little or no steering) across the asphalt, concrete or across the yard? Wouldn’t it be nice to have some wheels on the skis so you could drive around and be able to steer the sled?
Of course it would be. There are a number of sled dollies that fasten to your skis and let you actually drive the machine (slowly) with the wheel lifting the carbide runners up off the snow less -surface your having to deal with.
The SURE GRIP dollies have two axles , four wheels and a cable to keep the wheels on the skis and spindles, allowing you to easily move your sled around under it own power.

SURE GRIP steerable Sled Dollies!
Sled dollies have been around in various forms for many years, but we have found the Sure Grip Steerable Dollies to be the most versatile sets of dollies we’ve ever used.
Anytime we need to move a sled for any distance across anything other than snow, we slide the dollies under each ski, fire up the sled, and drive it!. With the Sure Grip Steerable Dollies, you steer with precision. . The big 5” rubber wheels have proven to be extremely durable in our years of use.
Trailer ramps that have any sort of approach angle to the ramp can easily be driven right up, again saving your carbides. The swivel track dolly lets you move your sled around when you don’t need or want to start the engine.
We’ve used the Sure Grip Steerable Dollies for many years, and have found them to be a valuable asset in our shop. many dealers have several sets for running sleds in and out of their shops.
