You can ride your sled over grass with ease with the dollies installed as seen in the pics above.
Dollies stay secure while riding on hard pack surfaces, & grass.
Note: I wouldn't suggest using your sled for riding trails with out snow even though you can drive ok with the dollies installed. Your track & sliders need the snow for cooling and lubrication.

Bottom Line: When I decided to use my atv hauler for hauling the sleds I quickly
found out that I could not easily load my sled on a trailer that was
designed to haul atvs. When I tried to load my sled the ski skegs got
hung up on my ramp and trailer bed. They also took some serious chunks
out of my nice looking aluminum ramps, and also my cement shop floor.
I knew that there had to be a way of configuring the sled so we could
load the sleds easy. I did not want to add bed & ramp protectors
unless absolutely necessary. There are several ways of getting your
sled to be able to load easier without harming your sled & trailer.
You can either use dollies or sled Ski-Slips to enable better loading
without hanging up on your skegs. The ski-slips allow you to load
easier, but do not allow you to maneuver your sled around the shop
without much confusion. The only alternative for shop storage is to use
ski dollies with a track dolly. But beware because all dollies are not
Most of the dollies that I looked at would barely work for shop
storage, let alone be used for driving around on the grass, and forget
trying to load your precious sled on any trailer with the cheap
imitations of the ski dollies.
For the best ski-dolly available today you have to check out Sure Grip
Dollies at www.suregripdolly.com made and distributed by Recreational Necessities Inc. I have found them to be build with pride in the USA, and built
to last. They live up to their claims that they perform in all areas of
use, like steerable for storage, being able to load on steep inclines
with ease, and being able to drive for short distances on almost any
In the shop you can easily move you sled around with one person. Having the swivel rear track dolly makes this an easy job. I had car dollies on there and found that the sled would slide off the dollies if I pushed to aggressively on my sled. With the Sure Grip Dollies, you can secure them to the skis, and they will never allow your sled to slide off while maneuvering your sled around the shop. Just remember to not start your engine while you are using the track dolly
So the bottom line is if you want to be able to have a way of moving your sled around your shop while you are storing it, and also have a way of moving your sled around outside when there is no snow, I highly suggest taking a look at what Recreational Necessities Inc. has to offer you, before you lay out your hard earned cash on some other brand that will not live up to your expectations.
