Council Bluffs, IA – April 2012… Grundorf, a leading manufacturer of equipment for musicians and audio professionals, is pleased to announce the addition of three new utility transport dollies to help musicians and audio pros move their equipment easier. For any player or touring staff who has struggled moving large, heavy trunks and related gear, these new utility dollies—manufactured with top-notch materials—are the solution to a common challenge.
Superior construction and design is the hallmark of all Grundorf products and the new utility transport dollies are no exception. Each of the three available models is manufactured from 13-ply Baltic Birch wood. Commonly found in the best loudspeaker enclosures, Baltic Birch is an extremely rigid and durable material—making it the perfect choice because of its ability to support considerable weight without flexing. To prevent abrasions to the dolly's edges, the wood has been finished with rounded edges for protection against damage and splintering.
A convenient carry handle is an integral part of the dolly's wood platform. Being carved directly from the dolly's wood base, the handle has no protrusions to catch on clothing or other items. The handle is rounded and very comfortable. Equally notable, these dollies are designed to stand on their side when not in use—making them a great choice since they occupy little space in the vertical position.
As one would expect, the Grundorf utility transport dollies are designed to protect valuable equipment when it is being moved. To that end, the surface side of dolly plate is carpeted, thus ensuring a scratch-free environment that won't harm the equipment's exterior. Of particular note, these dollies are equipped with two brakes that enable them to remain stationary on an incline. This feature will be greatly appreciated by anyone who has ever struggled to keep a heavy trunk from moving as they attempted to open a door.
The new Grundorf utility transport dollies are available in two plate sizes: small (20.75 x 20.75 inches), and large (29.75 x 20.75 inches). The small model is outfitted with a choice of heavy-duty 3-inch or 4-inch casters while the large dolly employs heavy-duty 4-inch casters.
Frank Grund, President of Grundorf Corporation, commented on the company's new utility transport dollies, “While a lot of road cases come with casters, there are plenty of trunks and other heavy items that do not—forcing musicians to struggle whenever they have to move their equipment. Our new utility transport dollies are specifically designed to address this very common situation. With robust construction, three sizes, and smart design that enables them to occupy a minimum amount of space when not in use, I'm confident these dollies will make the process of moving heavy equipment far easier for many people.”
The new Grundorf utility transport dollies are in stock and available now. MSRP is as follows:
• Small model with 3” casters (73-011): $129.95
• Small model with 4” casters (73-010): $155.95
