LOADING
1. ADJUST DOLLY AXLES
Extend axles to the minimum length required to span the width of the vehicle, ensuring the snap button re-engages at the extended setting.
2. PROPER AXLE ADJUSTMENT
When you are extending the length of the dolly axles, it is very important that you extend them NO MORE THAN 4” past the side wall of the vehicle tire.
3. PREPARE DOLLY AXLES & SIDE FRAMES
Place the dolly axles and side frames on the ground in the configuration shown below with dollies centered and parallel to vehicle tires.
4. POSITIONING DOLLY SIDE FRAMES
A. Rotate cam locks to release tires from storage position.
B. Allow wheel pivot arms to rotate until the tires hit the ground.
C. Position the dolly side frames while the cam locks stay in detents.
5. CONNECT DOLLY AXLES TO DOLLIES
Place the engagement tabs into axle cradles of both dollies.

NOTE: Assure both dollies use identical cradle positions, such that dolly axles are parallel to each other and perpendicular to side frames.
6. INSERT BREAK-OVER BAR & MAKE SURE VEHICLE IS IN NEUTRAL
Make sure to shift the vehicle you are about to dolly into neutral, then insert the break-over bar into the dolly’s receiver tube.
7. PRE-ENGAGE CAM LOCK
Rotate the cam lock back towards the engaged position to ready it. Once the hole on the spindle reaches the right spot, the cam lock will automatically engage.
8. SWING BREAK-OVER BAR TO RAISE DOLLY
NOTE: If you have pre-engaged the cam lock, you should hear an audible “click” when the cam lock locks into the spindle, keeping the wheel in place.
9. ASSURE CAM LOCK ENGAGEMENT
With the assembly fully raised, the cam lock mechanism will visually re-engage by snapping into the closed position.
NOTE: An engaged cam lock can be distinguished by the roll pin lying flat against the body in a position parallel to the dolly tube. If not visually engaged, lower the dolly into the starting position before inspecting the cam lock.
10. RAISE REMAINING TIRES ON DOLLY
Follow steps 5 - 7 to raise the additional three tires of the dolly.
11. SECURE RATCHET STRAPS
1. Verify that the vehicle is in neutral and the brake is released so the tire can rotate. Pass the ratchet straps behind the vehicle tire, attaching the hooked ends to the mounts on the dolly handle. Ratchet the straps to secure the dolly to the towed vehicle.
2. Verify that the ratchet strap has two full wraps on the ratchet drum before you tighten them down.

NOTE: The towed vehicle must be in neutral and the emergency brake released.
TRANSPORTING
  • ITD dollies are designed for on-road use only and are not approved for freeway driving.
  • Potholes should be approached at a low rate of speed.
  • ITD recommends while towing with dollies to place the casualty in neutral to allow tires to move with the dolly.
UNLOADING
1. REMOVE RATCHET STRAPS
With the vehicle secured in the wheel lift of the tow truck, remove ratchet straps on dolly.
2. DISENGAGE CAM LOCK
Rotate the handle of the cam lock to disengage.
3. INSERT BREAK-OVER BAR
Keeping both hands on the break-over bar, insert into the receiver tube on the dolly. Stay on operator side while lowering.
4. GENTLY MOVE SPINDLE ASSEMBLY TO LOWER THE DOLLY
With two hands on the break-over bar, walk the break-over bar in an arc to gently lower one end of the dolly side frame.
5. LOWER THE REMAINING DOLLY SIDES
Repeat steps 2 - 4 to fully lower both dollies.
6. REMOVE AND COLLAPSE DOLLY AXLES
7. RE-ENGAGE DOLLY CAM LOCKS
Rotate the tires upward on the dollies. Re-engage the cam locks to secure the tires and ease transportation of the dollies.
TIPS & TRICKS
THE CRUNCH ZONE
A simple little tip when you find yourself in the crunch zone.

The crunch zone is anytime you are up against an obstacle such that you cannot fully raise the dolly using the break-over bar. 

The following are the steps to get out of the “Crunch Zone” using ITD dollies:
1. Fully load the dolly tire that has full access for the break-over bar.
2. Insert the break-over bar into the BACK SIDE of the receiver tube.
3. Re-engage the cam lock and pull the bar towards the frame to lock it into the stowed position. This will raise the vehicle’s tire up just enough such that you can pull away from the wall.
4. Repeat steps 1 - 3 on other side of dolly.
5. Once away from the obstacle, re-install the break-over bar in the stowed wheel receiver.
6. Apply a small amount of pressure forward to allow disengage of cam lock.
7. Load dolly as normal and attach tie downs.
WALKING THE DOLLY
With the ability to lock the dolly wheels in the stowed position, the ITD dollies have the unique feature of “walking” using the break-over bar. The advantage of walking the dolly is to reduce weight and back strain. 

To “Walk the Dolly”:
1. Set the dollies on the ground
2. Insert the break-over bar
3. Walk them back to the towed vehicle.
 
SAFETY & PRECAUTIONS
Please note that the X-Series™ Dollies are NOT prime movers. They are designed to transport the disabled vehicle to the nearest safe haven for placement on a vehicle carrier.

Before operating, perform a thorough visual inspection of the unit and accessories.

Before operating  X-Series™ Dollies, refer to the capacity labels on the main tube near the dolly handle.

Do not use the X-Series™ Dollies for the movement or transportation of humans or livestock animals.
Always inspect for any evidence of physical damage such as bending, cracking, and any defects. If there is any damage, DO NOT USE and replace with an ITD dolly/the part of the dolly that is damaged.
