What is a dolly used for?

A dolly is a platform on wheels explains Douglas Equipment. Usually, the platform has two axles and four wheels in total, one on each corner. Dollies have been used for decades for transportation needs and come in all shapes and sizes. The main advantage of a dolly is that they make immovable objects moveable. If you have a heavy item that you need to transport, then all you need to do is lift the object onto your dolly, and suddenly it is mobile. This is ideal if you need to move large and heavy items. If you own, run or are employed in any form of business where you need to transport heavy items, then a dolly is a worthwhile investment for your company and makes the workers much more efficient.

How do I use a dolly properly?

Hevi Haul explains how to use a dolly in order to optimize its use and lessen your chances of hurting your back. In order to get whatever you’re moving onto your dolly, tip the dolly forward enough to slip the plate underneath the item. Then, tip the dolly back onto its wheels, using your hand to hold the item in place. This makes sure that the item tips back with the dolly and not forward onto the floor. Other helpful pointers include making sure you’re applying enough force on the top box of a stack of boxes, otherwise the boxes in the middle are going to pop out. If you need to move something upstairs, your hand truck can help. Just take it step by step, rolling your loaded truck slowly up each step to keep your cargo from bouncing off. Don’t tip your dolly too far back when going downstairs. Your hand truck’s slats will slide down the edge and create momentum you’re not ready for. Roll straight over any bumps you might encounter. If you head at it at an angle, your dolly will tip and spill your cargo.

Why are dollies called dollies?

According to the Word Detective, the whole story starts with the word “doll,” which arose in the mid-16th century as a shortened “pet” or familiar form of “Dorothy.” The substitution of “l” for the “r” in Dorothy was not, at the time, as weird as it seems today. The same pattern gave us “Hal” from “Harold,” “Sally” from “Sarah,” and several other common names. “Doll” and “Dolly,” in addition to being “pet” names for women, soon came to be applied as generic terms to pet animals, toy “dolls,” and lower-class women, including servants. “Dolly” was also used as a name for various small mechanical devices, often because the contraption was thought to resemble a child’s doll in some way. Therefore, a wooden device used in the 18th century to agitate clothes in a washtub was called a “dolly” because the user gripped it by two “arms” and twisted it, making the gizmo’s two “legs” churn the water in the tub.
“Dolly” wasn’t used to mean a small wheeled platform until around 1910, and by then the term “dolly” had largely lost the original “looks a little like a person” sense. It is possible, of course, that someone saw a resemblance between a primitive wheeled “dolly” and human arms and legs, but doubtful. It’s more likely that “dolly” was used because of such carts’ small size when compared to larger trucks, wagons and similar conveyances. It is also possible that “dolly” in the wheeled sense harks back to “dolly” as a generic term for a lower-class woman or girl, especially a servant. Thus a “dolly” would be so-called because it “helps” or “serves” in the task of moving heavy objects.

Are dollies and hand trucks the same thing?

No. Hevi Haul explains that while often miscalled dollies, hand trucks are quite different. Hand trucks have large wheels and stand upright. They are L shaped, with the back of the truck (which the item lays on) reaching vertically. On hand trucks, the bottom platform, where the item being carried sits, is smaller. To use a hand truck, you slide the bottom platform underneath the item you are moving. Then, you tilt the truck toward you so that it balances on its two wheels, which are located at the back. Sometimes hand trucks come with extra wheels that kick out to make it a four-wheel carrier. They can also come with attachments for climbing stairs or to lay the hand truck down horizontally. Dollies are up off the ground. Unlike a hand truck, which can slide underneath the item while on the ground, you have to lift whatever you want to transport onto a dolly.
