How wrong is it that when I see a product that claims to let you carry hundreds of pounds of weight, I wonder how it’ll stand up to those poor sobs featured on TLC (no, not Jon & Kate Plus 8 – those other people … the ones with excessive … um, girth)? Well, yah, I do.
One hefty-does-it product that’s received a lot of positive reviews is the Big Slider Utility Mover. It basically looks like the crazy carpets that are used for out of control slides down ski slopes. Actually, I think it IS a crazy carpet, just marketed in a clever way. Anyhoo – it’s a plastic sheet with a handle that can be placed or wiggled underneath a heavy object. You can then slide said heavy object around with relative ease.
It can handle 500 lbs (so maybe it IS better suited for Jon & Kate plus … 4 or so?), carries 30 cubic feet of stuff (providing you lasso some of it) and won’t leave any scuff marks on your flooring (assuming your floor is clean). It is the ultimate in lazy-man loads, and let me tell you, I like my men lazy. The Big Slider is ideal for yardwork, moving furniture, hauling garbage or towing that heavy miter saw around the house (it happens!). The Big Slider Professional Utility Mover comes in a few different sizes, the cheapest is $25 and the top of the line model is a possibly overpriced $135.
