I watched the guy demo it at Iaapa. After he was done it looked like his arms were jello and he was really red in the face. And that was with a combo unit.

Would these straps work? I have a slide that is 34 feet long.

Did you know that sliced bread is the best thing since pulled bread?

I jumped in kinda late on this one, but hey if you like it and it works for you use it.

At some point in time, we may have to think about it. Right now our largest unit is about 800 pounds, kinda easy to roll with 2 people, yes, 1 could roll it with rolling straps, but no way one person could stand it up, and handle the MD4 or any other dolly, we have tried.

I like the concept of the 110v, no worry about dead batteries, etc.

I would recommend replaceing the wire rope in the winch with ropel. They make the rope just for winches. We do a lot of jeeping, rock climbing, etc, and if you have every had a wire from the wire rope stick you, you know exactly what I am talking about.

Whoa, this is a great thread.  I actually bought a slide from Gary.  It was one of the Slides I built my (still very small business) with.  I also have a winch dolly.  Mine is a little different though, and I've got a few tricks I'm not ready to show the world, but it's coming.  

 

 

I use regular hooked tow straps laid under the inflatable prior to inflation.  They remain under the inflatable for the duration of the rental.  I've only used this setup for around 200 rentals since I started last year, but it's been a backsaver for me, as I've done most of them alone.  That said, my heaviest unit is 600 pounds dry, but even waterlogged, the winch has no problem rolling that sucker up.  I've found that on a bunch of my rentals that my access to power is no longer there, so, the battery is more convenient.  PS, you never have to worry about a dead battery if you carry jumper cables in your vehicle.  5 minutes of charge will get your winch rolled up if it's dead.  That said, I've never had that problem because my battery lasts all weekend (5-10 rolls).

This rolling machine looks like a great idea.

My straps work great. Big units for me are 600-900lbs. Still takes 2 of us to stand it up and on the hd-4.

If you are solo, can u use the winch to stand up the 600 lb slide ?  I would think you could especially if the winch has remote control >.

This is a great idea.  Here is a complete set up, minus the dolly / battery.

That looks like it would be an easier set-up for us who are not mechanically inclined.

I have two towing straps and an electric winch for when I have to roll some of the bigger ones on my own. It is good to have in a pinch.
