[quote=Amaruk]Thanks for the info! gmfoo1, those wheels look interesting. But the quote on that page:
These Dollies should not be used in place of a Grand Piano Truck Dolly that needs to be moved more than a few inches. Grand pianos should never be moved around , on their own legs. This will cause the bolts on the legs to strip, eventually breaking the legs..
tells me that moving a piano more than a few inches might not be good if you do it too often... Great info!! Thanks!
Perhaps that is more a disclaimer for someone who is moving a piano from one house to another since they refer to them not replacing a truck dolly.
The last sentence in the quote, "Grand pianos should never be moved around , on their own legs. This will cause the bolts on the legs to strip, eventually breaking the legs" is in a separate paragraph from the rest on the site. I think they are saying that without casters like the ones they are selling, pianos should not be moved around on their own wheels/legs. I know of grand pianos at universities that get moved around all the time for performances from a back room to the stage, or different places on the stage. They are always on some sort of caster. I would think that there has to be some way to do this without the legs falling off!
