    That looks really neat but I doubt I could afford it!
    Keep your booger hook off the bang switch.
    It's faster to dial 3-5-7 than it is to dial 9-1-1.
    I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

    850 lbs capacity. My old one weighs a ton empty. The tin box is a lot lighter, empty it, unbolt it from the wall studs, and carry it.
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    I have other things to move too and figured the powered unit would be well worth it. I have a cheap hand truck now and for light stuff/boxes its OK, but going up and down stairs will wear you out and it has no climber treads - just 10" pneumatic tires. The stair climbing power will save all our backs and I can use it any time I need it, vs relying on others and/or paying a service. Just thought I'd throw it out there. My safe is a smaller cabinet, 23 cu. ft. I think. It's not a small home safe, though.

    That seems like a great product. Priced it out on their website. With all options came to about $4,700. If I had about 50 friends who would chip in and share it------. Let us know how it works when you get it. Thanks for sharing.

    If you have 50 friends you don't need it.

    May I ask how you and 50 others will walk up a stair case all holding on to the same box?

    I rented an appliance 2-wheeler with support wheels and straps, two buddies and I made the move, we were going down steps, not up.

    I rent one when I have to move something big. Rents for around $50 a day. Well worth it! DR

    My safe only weighs 600 lbs but there is no way you could keep it leaning on that. For a refrigerator or such it would be great. Jim

    I watched the safe delivery guys use a larger one of these things last week when they delivered my safe. Just watching it work was worth the delivery price. I want one!

    The folks that delivered my safe and placed it for $125 earned every penny.
    They had these wood strips about 4' long, with rubber on one side and teflon on the other.
    As the safe got to the door, they laid the strips like railroad tracks, the teflon side up, and the safe slid in like on rails.
    Not a scratch on the hardwood floors.
    But, they don't do stairs. The weight of the safe, plus the stair crawler, and the 3 or 4 guys is too much for most stairs.
