Service Announcement

This service announcement is for all X-Series™ Dollys shipped between 2/1/2019 and 5/2/2019 with serial numbers in the following range:
There is a potential that your dolly may be missing the spindle nut retaining clip.  See Fig. (1).  This spindle nut retaining clip was designed to be used with the X-Series™ Dolly.  It is very unlikely that we missed a spindle nut retaining clip, but we definitely do not want to take any chances.

If you have an X-Series™ Dolly, please remove from service immediately and inspect to make sure that the spindle nut retaining clip is installed as shown in Fig. (2).

Please follow our step by step inspection-instructions included in this email to confirm that the spindle nut retainer clip is properly installed.  If you have any questions, please contact our sales department via email at sales@intheditch.com or call (208) 587-7960.

Step 2 -  Inspect to verify that the spindle nut retaining clip is installed.  The spindle nut retaining clip is noted in the GOLD color.  If the spindle nut retaining clip is not on the dolly, you must place the spindle nut retaining clip on the dolly before returning the dolly to service.  See Fig. (4).

If your Dolly is missing the spindle nut retaining clip, please call In The Ditch immediately, and we will ship you the proper replacement parts. We will also begin the process to pay $20.00 for each Dolly Frame that requires the installation of the spindle nut retaining clip. All you have to do is email sales@intheditch.com the serial number inspected, address for a check, and to whom written to, and we will send a check or parts credit.
