compound bucket dolly


Hey guys need some help..Ive been hanging and taping for fifteen years, I still use hand tools, i just enjoy it alot more its soon becoming a lost art. For so many years ive been stacking buckets while on my stilts, with many accidents with tipped over buckets. At the bottom i have a trashcan dolly with casters and a bucket top attached to the top of it, to allow the bottom bucket a sturdy place to rest. Awhile back i found a cart online that was made from aluminum tubing and it looked like a tripod with rolling casters. On top was a space for the bucket to sit and a tray to hold all your knives & trowels.Iit was kind of pricy at the time and im now just looking to purchase it and cant find it at all. If any of you can help with locating it for i would greatly appreciate it. If anyone does find it please attach a link or phone #. Thank alot

Re: compound bucket dolly

Re: compound bucket dolly


Just get two 18" squares of subfloor and screw them together bolt on some casters from harbor freight and screw an empty pail on top.

Re: compound bucket dolly




this may serve you well.. this is my life saver, i cart everything around room to room to eliminate walking back and forth. holds everything for every process.. stands about 4 foot tall, pretty light..

Re: compound bucket dolly


I agree with CD, you will get more bang for the buck with a mini scaffold. Get a hawk with a hole on the bottom of handle, you can rest it on top of scaffold. your trowels hook on to the rails. Then you can have more than one bucket mixed, and it's adjustable in height too

Re: compound bucket dolly


I use the mini,,, but I saw how Arey in his vid. just kicked his dolly out the way when doing his floor work. Can't do that with a mini scaffold . Not in a tight spot. Never used a bucket dolly ,,, But I will next week. The mini is great for stilt work.. Everything is right there . radio/cigarettes/redbulls,,,,
oh ,,and the drywall stuff.
