just wondering what you guys use to pull wall ovens by yourselves? I have a buddy that has a similar one to this, and he wont come off of it even for a couple hundred bucks. So that being said, I need to purchase one, Since I didn't take the one Sears let me use, when I left.http://www.alldolly....d-AllDolly.html

Never done one by myself. On the rare occasion I have to pull one, I bring a worker and use a shoulder dolly. However, I am also interested in the different methods for solo removal.

Lift tables seem the way to go to me. Expect to spend 250-350 depending on what your looking for. Worth every penny though.

Forgive me, I wasn't clear. I can get one locally so shipping isn't an issue. I meant transport weight to customer's house, carrying up steps etc.

Living out west here, I dont run into going up steps often.

It does seem kinda ridiculous that you would have to bring a second person just to get a labor saving device inside a customers house safely, just to try to save you the trouble of bringing a second person.

I almost bought the all dolly instead for that very reason. It breaks down, its lightweight in comparison. I guess I just like the way the table seems ten million more times solid. And it kinda adds to the show.

I don't have mine yet btw. Been using two guys and a milk carton for as long as I can remember. I've just been getting a huge amount of dbl oven work lately, and my dads getting a bit old for it. A guy I contract out installs too has the same lift table I bought, and it was from his recommendation that I decided to get it.

Oh, also, in the case of really tall dbl ovens, after I get it out, I can lower it to 11", the height of the dolly, do my work, and then raise it back up again to install, with ease, or relative ease and by myself no less.

Seems heavy for sure. Just want to know real world experience. ie is it worth the trouble. Same thing regarding removing a dryer that's stacked. Particularly when by yourself. When I have a worker with me, the shoulder dolly is great. But would like a method to do it solo

You know, stacked laundry always seems to have that second problem variable going for it as well. Being installed in such a way that it takes a contortionist and a midget and a strong man to get em back out.

One of my first calls ever was to stack a dryer on top of a washer. Customer complained that Sears kept cancelling appointment. When I went there, the dryer was laid horizontally on the washer. The closet door was lower than the combined height of the machines so you could not stack them and slide them in the closet and there was absolutely no room on the sides. To this day, I still don't know how we were able to stack and connect the dryer. If I had eaten one more biscuit or another bowl of grits that day, we would have never stacked them. Now, we always ask if the machine is stacked and how much room there is to access the machine. We've also learned to ask if a washer is in one of those damnable plastic trays.

I had a lift table for microwaves back around 04 or so, that thing was a heavy duty piece of crap. but when no one was there that could help me get one down, it worked for that. But that was really heavy as hell, like 30 lbs or so.

I've got an alldolly. I love that thing! Beats the heck out of my old grunt methods! It is a little cumbersome but works great. Also good for stackables. It could be a few inches taller though. But even if the washer is a little tall I still use it to to take dryers off. Just takes a little more work to do.

I did this once and used a cheap motorcycle jack from harborfreight tools. I had a plan to make a cool platform for it, but as often happens...I never got a round tuit.

This looks like the one I use. Keep it bungee strapped to cage in van. Pull out double ovens by myself with it all the time. I think the one I have is rated up too 400 lbs. I was unsure at first but now don't know how I ever worked without one.
There is a huge difference between 10 years experience and one years experience ten times over.
