Tow Dollies

Is there any one out there that uses a tow dolly. I have been looking @ the Acme Tow Dolly because it is lighter and has disk brakes Car Tow Dolly -The Lightest and Toughest Tow Dolly For All Car Towing Needs - Acme Car Tow Dolly Company. I really think it a good idea to have brakes. Any help would be great.

Breaks help your stopping distance.

I have a tow master dolly with brakes, I wouldn't use one without them. You need to have that extra slowing and stopping ability when going down grades.
