Tow Dolly

If I have a tow dolly without brakes, can I get brakes installed?

I suggest you call a shop that builds trailers. Be prepared to let them know the name brand, axle weight, tire/rim size. You can probably do it. But when you get all the costs and labor together it might pay you to sell your tow dolly and buy one with brakes.

FWIW

about stehl dollies in particular and all dollies in general: check the alignment before you buy the dolly.
i bought a new stehl tow dolly about 1.5 years ago.
i used it for the first time recently.
both tires wore out in 600 miles.
8 ply 13'' trailer tires are hard to find and expensive. $150 for 2. 6 ply tires are commonly available.
i found out that the wheels had 3/4" tow in and the camber settings were way off.
after getting the alignment reset at a truck frame shop in reno, nv. ($120) my new tires are now wearing ok. they bent the spindles to correct the alignment.

You can buy all you need from etrailer.com http://http://www.etrailer.com/dept-...er_Brakes.aspx. I just added brakes to my tow dolly for about $250 for the parts-I installed them myself, very easy to do. You just bolt on the backing plates with the brakes attached and replace the hub asembly with a drum assembly and wire it up.

Good luck,
John
