I absolutely love my 14" collapsible dob, and find I get a fair bit of use out of it. But, of course, it's a beast to move. I've been considering adding wheelbarrow handles to it, as I've seen in other places -- but somewhere, possibly even on this site, I saw a big caution about drilling holes in this dob's base, as it's particle board.
Moreover, there was concern about whether the particle board itself would even stand the force exerted by the handles while in motion.
Can anyone comment on these issues? While I accept that I could get a flatbed dolly to transport the scope, that still presents the challenge of lifting the dob up onto the dolly platform, something that, while not horrible, would get old. There's also the issue of dolly wheels not typically being suited to grassy or uneven terrain.
