When I was in Best Buy in Florida I noticed they were displaying front load full size in the stacked position.  That may be great for the customer and space, but not good for the Lone ranger repair man.  We will have to have help or a tool.

 

How can we attack the stack if we are a one man army, army of one.

 

What tools are availabe.  Seen some for ranges will they work.  What is your method.  I have not yet been attacked by a stack.

I carry a oven dolly . I just raise the wood platform up to the height of the bottom of the dryer and release the connectors between the washer and dryer . I then slide the dryer off the top of the washer and onto my dolly and roll it out of the way.

 

Hope this helps

I have an oven dolly I made to work with unstacking the dryers. Its basically a table that I can set to any height with casters on it. I'll raise it up to where it would slide over the washer, then lean the dryer back and slip the table under the dryer. Then lean the dryer back forward and its sitting on the table able to be wheeled around out of the way.

I saw a oven dolly, here on the sight. Do you have to have an assistant to put it on the dolly. I sort of see that you could lay it down strap it on the dolley and then lift it, or lowerer it and remove it without help. I also see on the service call an additional fee to stack and unstack dryers off washers. They are hard to get around in a confined space that most are in already. I actually think about having a service trailer big enough to just take them out and work on them in when the problem may require a bunch of dissassembly, and posible water leak or floor damage.

I was searching the net yestersday and found the POWER Mate hand truck, stair climber, they are probally very expensive. They would be great for me to load units I sell into the back of customers trucks, especially refrigerators. I dont have a load ramp or dock. Will put up a link later. Someone may have one already.

When you use the dolly, do you have help rasing them up or can you do it by yourself by laying the dolly and unit down.  Would like to see some pictures of your made /modified dolly.
