They both barely fit into the shed so I don't have a lot of room for movement.
What I want to build is some sort of rolling platform that I can drive the ATV up on,
then push the whole platform with atv on it over.
I'm starting to understand why the jacks may not work now as I'm guessing
you have limited space between the 2 atv's once parked inside the shed.
I was thinking of iron "C" channels and dolly wheels to ride inside the channels.
Then place 1" plywood on top of the dolly wheels. A small ramp up and it should be ok.
So I take it your looking for a stationary track type platform that doesn't
need to move forward or backward then, just move L to R and vice versa.
I'm also guessing the platform must be minimal width so the tires of the atv
just fit on so when slid over you have room to get the second atv in.
Regarding the tracks, a concern I think that may arise is, as they would be stationary
(bolted to the floor) the second atv would be driving over them
then to be parked. Wouldn't this possibly cause a potential of dirt gathering
in them for the wheels of the platform to get jammed or bind?
For some reason I just keep going back to a jack dolly system. This way you
don't have anything on the floor or a big platform to have issues with.
Here's my latest idea (thought), get a center jack that wont have anything
sticking out from the side of the atv for parking the second one.
Something like this:
Baron Custom Accessories Scissor Lift - Cruiser Motorcycle - Motorcycle Superstore
Then make a better heavy duty dolly like this:
K&L Fat Jack Dolly - Cruiser Motorcycle - Motorcycle Superstore
If you have a welding friend or weld yourself, I think you could make the dolly
yourself with using larger swivel casters for easier mobility. You could also
make some extensions of some type for the jack itself to spread the weight
I don't know if you have a budget in mind for this project, but I guess
cheaper is better (duh). With the above you have a way to move your atv
for the parking issue without any thing sticking out from the side, plus a
usable jack stand for working on them.
For some reason this has been on my mind lately as I like discussing options
for DIY projects.
Just another thought (idea) to consider.
