If you’ve been following Gear for Life a while, you will notice that we are constantly asking ourselves, “Why didn’t we think of that?” Here’s another example. There hasn’t been a lot of innovation since the standard dolly was invented—back when the wheel was created. Enter the Makita Power-Assisted Dolly, and save the back.

Have you ever struggled uphill with a weighed-down dolly or crashed going downhill with a loaded dolly? The Makita motorized dolly is equipped with knobby grip-tire and a brushless motor to make transporting easier and safer.
