Dolly Stands Make Repair Work Easier
Avon, Ohio brothers Eric and Steve Wise spend their winters repairing, overhauling and restoring farm tractors. "We do our own maintenance plus some restoration work, and we're always looking for ways to make things easier and faster," Eric says.
  For years they've made tractor-splitting stands for their own use to work on engines, clutches, and rear ends. Recently, the brothers say they've been asked to make splitting stands for others. That prompted them to launch a sideline business, manufacturing stands and dollies for sale.
  Their product line now includes stands to support engine and clutch assemblies, dollies to handle the front end of tricycle-type tractors, dollies to handle the entire rear end of 1939-1956 Farmall rear ends, and more.
  They use heavy carbon steel to construct their stands and mount them on Faultless heavy-duty casters.
  "Most of our customers so far have been individuals or small independent farm machinery repair shops," Eric says. "Our goal is to provide a solution for someone who wants to make a tractor repair job easier. We can design stands and dollies from the ground up for any tractor or other machine.
  "Our main focus in on the IH Farmall line, but we can make stands for other makes, too. We recently adapted a set of stands and dollies for a man who restores Deere tractors."
  A complete set of stands and dollies would cost $500 to $1,000, depending on how much the stands have to be modified from the Farmall specifications.
  They have some stock on hand and can ship immediately. Shipping weight is less than 300 lbs.
