ONTARIO, Canada — Whether it’s a 30-foot center console with dual outboards or equally large travel trailer, the combination of weight and length can be daunting when trying to navigate through tight surroundings, even for experienced drivers. Parkit360’s Force 10K trailer dolly easily moves a 10,000-pound trailer with a 900-pound tongue weight. It provides the confidence to boldly maneuver an expensive boat or RV around obstacles and corners.
Unlike a driver that relies on mirrors and backup cameras, a Force 10K user faces the trailer. This provides the ability to see exactly where it is and steer within inches of an obstacle, if needed. If there’s any doubt, it’s simply a matter of walking over and checking. And unlike using a car or truck, the trailer can be parked with the hitch end forward as a serious theft deterrent.
Parkit360’s Force 10K is simple to set up and intuitive to use. It freewheels to the trailer and attaches securely to the included 1–7/8-inch, 2-inch, 2–5/16-inch or 50mm ball with Stableloc Technology. Power for the Parkit360 Force 10K comes from a Bosch 1.5-horsepower motor and a 12-volt deep cell battery. Planetary gearing and 4-inch wide pneumatic tires deliver traction in almost any terrain. Using the forward/stop/reverse thumb toggle switch on its handle, users simply walk and steer, letting the power dolly do the work. For added safety, it automatically sets the trailer’s electric or surge brakes.
When finished, Parkit360’s Force 10K is recharged with the built-in charger with power meter. It’s about the same size and weight as a lawnmower, so it’s small enough to fit into the trunk of a compact car or RV storage compartment.
The Force 10K sells for $1,790; online pricing is commonly available.
Parkit360 builds three models of power dollies with capacities of 5,000, 10,000 and 15,000 pounds. Manufactured in Canada, they come with two-year warranties.
