    If you always have even distribution of the load on a flat surface 4/125 could work other wise worst case scenario

    You mean like one of these furniture dollys that transforms from a hand truck to a cart?

    I've had one of these things for a while and it has definitely come in handy:

    Not quite as nice to use as a real hand truck...and at 6'2", sometimes the handle feels too short to get good balance (unless I can stack the heavier things higher up)...but it folds up nice and small and can manage plenty of weight.

    Pipefitters often hire out as riggers.Essentially what riggers do is move really really heavy crap from here to there. They work with hand trucks ,piano dollies. multi-tons,jacks,4 wheel carts, tunnel buggies, rollers,johnson bars,breaker bars,come-alongs,pin wrenches,lifts of every size and shape imaginable,cranes of every variety some so big they have to be brought in on trains and built up and torn down on site for 1 lift,helicopters,slings ,shackles and cables just to name a few and I have never known a single one of those items to have less than 2 names.It was really fun work when you could get it though:smile:

    I am watching the new ESPN NFL countdown show. I was never a big fan of Chris Berman's schtick, but man-a-life this new version is a train wreck makes me wish the old show was back. At one point they had a graphic up with the text "Andrew Luck Has Not Practice Since ..." It looks like it's being run by college interns or something.

    It must suck to not have a local team so that you must go national to get your football info. :hide:

    watching the college football, they showed a honeyshot of some frisky coeds and now i'm wondering if 'coeds' isn't an outdated terms what with the spectrum of gender identities these days.... pan-ed? hmmm....
