Default Moving a UDS

So, my neighbor asks if he can borrow my UDS for a party tomorrow. Being the good Brethren I am, I agree instantly (I'm even cleaning it for him). He brings me his small piano dolley to aid in transit. Now my UDS has handles, but..moving it with casters was like a dream! If anyone has thought about putting casters on their UDS, DO IT!!!

The dolley raised the height by 5 1/2". Not a big deal for a 6'4" 250lb moron, such as myself! Using just casters, the height increase would be reduced by at least 2".

Moving this thing was sooooooo easy, even when the dolley grabbed a sidewalk crack, or 4. This is most certainly a project I have added to my UDS mod list! If you're thinking about adding wheels to your UDS, stop thinking, and start doing!! 3 times easier to move the UDS on a piano dolley, than my NBBD, with pneumatic wheels.

*edit* I'm even calling in sick to do the cooking for his birthday party, being the good brethern that I am!

Drum Dollies are a must for a UDS.
