Rite-Hite Outboard Motor Carriers
very good product
Very handy item, before I purchased this product I put my 9.9 Honda outboard on a wooden horse and had a tough time moveing it around in the garage now with the wheels it a breeze.

This device sure makes it easy to move the 6HP around. Seems very stable and rolls easily though the wheels are small.
When building, remember to face the two holes on the U-shaped piece Downwards. (I missed this and had to rebuild it, but fortunately had Not tightened all the nuts)
Also found the motor fit better if I did not use their suggestion of installing the plastic mount closer to the handle piece.

Does the job
I purchased the motor carrier online for my husband and it arrived within about 2-3 business days. I put it together the following weekend.
The parts package was missing one nut - had to purchase at local hardware store. Included were several flat washers that were not included in the parts list or instructions, but I was able to figure out what to do with them and they are definitely necessary for long term use of the carrier. There were no 'extra' parts.
Once together, the carrier seems very sturdy. We are using it to store a 9.9 4 stroke outboard. I was a little concerned about the diameter of the wheels at first, but was able to move the carrier with the motor over uneven ground (a lumpy lawn area) without a problem.
As other folks have mentioned, the instructions are not the best, so lay your parts out and reference the picture of the finished product if you're not sure about something.
Only time will tell how well it holds together after moving the motor back and forth several times. However, I'm initially quite happy with the product.

The directions for assembly where very hard to follow. I had to look at the picture on the box repeatedly during assembly. However, once completed, it works as expected and is very stable with my 25 HP Johnson outboard on it. It is easy to move around with the engine on it.
Would purchase again if I get another outboard engine.
