The dolly or dolly truck is a frame mounted on
wheels or rollers and is used for moving or shifting
heavy loads for short distances. Figure 13-27 illustrates
the three common types used by the Navy.
The general-purpose dolly (figure 13-27A) is used
to move unpalletized material, primarily large, bulky,
and/or heavy items over short distances.
The pallet dolly (figure 13-27B) with a capacity of
4,000 pounds is used primarily to move palletized loads
in and out of boxcars, trucks, trailers, and storerooms.
The advantages of the reefer car dolly are
maneuverability, ease of operation, and suitability for
