Handy Wheeled Panel Mover
“Carrying heavy panels, sheet rock, and doors is easy with this 2-wheeled ‘board carrier’ that I put together. It has a long handle on it that makes carrying large, flat loads much easier, and reduces the possibility of back injury and muscle strain,” says Quinton Tschetter, Oskaloosa, Iowa.
The carrier rides on a pair of 10-in. wheels with axle that Tschetter already had. A pair of 2-ft. long, 3/4-in. thick boards spaced about 2 1/2 in. apart are fastened on between the wheels and held secure by a pair of vertical strap irons. The floor - a 4-ft. length of plywood - extends beyond the boards to keep the carrier level when not in use. A threaded rod with a handle welded onto one end runs through a hole in one of the boards, and by turning the handle Tschetter can clamp the panel or door in place.
“The handle makes it easy to balance the load and move the carrier around,” says Tschetter. “I came up with the idea because I’m 76 years old and not as strong these days. I used to handle plywood and sheet rock like they were toys, but not anymore.”
