This tool is great. My husband and I were able to move a very heavy upright piano from one room to another over a ceramic tile floor. It required a little bit of adjusting the wheels when crossing over wide grout but not a big deal. One of us could have done this but it was helpful to have one pushing while the other was guiding it through doorways and balancing the piano when hitting an uneven door jamb. The wheels are tiny and probably wouldn’t work on carpet but it was perfect for the tile.
We are beyond lucky to have a roof deck that has 12 planters that havean average weight of at least 500lbs. At the start of the pandemic I had a brilliant idea to clean the IPE decking which hadn't been seriously cleaned since it was installed 8 years ago. Initially I thought I'd just do my best and clean around the heavy planters. Less than I'd like to do but better than nothing. Once upon a time I moved a huge produce cooler with three women, two dollies and a lever thing that lifted on a wheel thingamajig. It occurred to me that maybe if I could procure the same tools. we could move the planters and I could clean underneath. But, we are in the midst of a pandemic, live in NYC, don't own a car and have limited storage space so the thought of buying or even renting and then shlepping home the appropriate equipment seemed out of the question. An Internet consultation led to this item. The price wasn't nuts so I gave it a try. My wife's the brains and I'm the yawn so she was in charge of figuring it out and setting it up. Not only did she crack the not so difficult code she pretty much moved most of the planters by herself. Also we're both under 5'6" and are on the north side of 50 years old. Because of this tool we were able to thoroughly clean our deck and rearrange some of our planters to opposite sides of the deck Some of the planters moved at least 30 feet. Also, our deck is not an even surface. Some of the planks stick up higher so at times it slipped off the claws. But that was easily dealt with and nobody's toes got smashed. One con is some of the pads on the bear paws got worn down. In the reviews I consulted before I bought I read that some people broke the lever right away. My wife was very careful to make sure the lever was making full contact with the planter before she lifted. I tried it once and almost bent it because it was sticking a wee bit out. Like I said, she's the brains. A truly delightful product. It never cracked and neither did we. Seri
It's rare that my expectations are exceeded for a low-cost product that makes seemingly impossible claims. I needed to move a 200 lb cabinet by myself across a somewhat gritty, concrete basement floor. To complicate things, it had to be steered around a corner. Mission accomplished. The included jack let me safely lift each corner. The sliders have extended tabs on them so you can place them precisely without getting your fingers beneath the leg you are lifting. I was able to push the cabinet myself with just fingertips. It glided with little effort. To go around the corner I had to manually turn each caster using the molded-in handle to the direction I wanted to go next. I moved the 200 lb cabinet, a heavy workbench and a 10' long steel shelf in under 20 minutes.
I purchased this for the heavy duty furniture lifter that was included in the kit. I knew all along I wasn’t going to use the four plastic sliders that came in the box. Instead I bought some 5 inch square felt sliders that I would be able to slide under quickly by myself. I had a duel stacked washer delivered and installed. It was the day after delivery That we realized there was a problem with the electrical outlet which was behind the washer. I scheduled an electrician to come out but they told me they would not move the washer in anyway. And that I would have to provide access to the outlet for them to service it. How was I going to move this super heavy washer that was on a pedestal washer and weighs who knows how much? And the washer was backed in between cabinets. How would I reach the back corners of the washer to have enough leverage to lift the corners? With The heavy duty lifter in this kit was able to lift each corner just enough to slide under the 5 inch heavy duty felt slider. And I did it all by myself! The handle of the lifter was short enough that I could angle other between the washer and the cabinet where a small corner of the lifter lip allowed me the leverage I needed. It is VERY well made and strong. A great purchase! It did take both myself and the electrician to slide the heavy washers forward and back. But it all worked out due to this handy little lifter.
Love the versatile lifter, which can be adjusted to an infinite variety of heights....At first, I thought that it's short lever arm would be a negative and make it difficult to lift very heavy objects - but that wasn't the case at all. (the shorter lever arm actually was a plus because I could more easily maneuver and position the lifter in relatively tight spaces...) Haven't used the sliders yet, but plan to test them on my fridge sometime soon.
I was skeptical about because it was so small, but it certainly works. I've used it on heavy IKEA shelves, a hundred-year-old trunk, a large oak couch, and a very full filing cabinet. I (age 73) been able to move all of them on my own without help. I would like to give it 4.5 stars because it does do very well on carpets with deep pads underneath them. For those getting someone to help lift the item onto a furniture dolly seems the only solution.
It is hard to believe that this relatively small device could lift our over-sized refrigerator. One of the feet under the fridge had broken and we couldn't move it even one inch, so we decided to place appliance glides under both front feet. This lifted the fridge easily. I stepped on the handle, up went the refrigerator, and my husband slipped the glide immediately into place. We releveled the fridge to account for the added height in the front. and now it moves like a breeze. Amazing!! It would have been virtually impossible without this little, but mighty heavy duty furniture lifter and mover. This is a must have for anyone that has a fridge, washer, dryer, hutch, whatever, whatever!!!
