    I have a couple of the genie lifts for lifting things in places when it is just not possible to get my forklift or especially my backhoe with forks.
    Not easy to move around loaded unless on concrete of some other hard smooth surface but great for lifting

    I also have a barrel dolly that is a great help as well again only on hard smooth surfaces
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Very cool Genie lift. Seen them, never used one. All this points out just lifting is only half the problem. And when you are trying to lift and then move on dirt things get complicated in a hurry. I've got a couple of wine barrel planters that weigh who knows how much and I would like to move them eventually. I've thought about adapting wheelbarrow wheels to my engine hoist but the old problem of how to move it once I've got it lifted comes up again. It's at times like this that I miss being in the valley and close to AG with heavy equipment. But it would not help because everything is too tight in the backyard to use that stuff anyway. I don't even have a lawn tractor anymore because we have no lawn.

    C-nag many a time I have laid down what is called in the oilpatch "seals" or pads to move things on soft soils moving your wine barrels with an engine hoist would only require laying down some thick plywood with as little as 2 sheets you could move that hoist to just about anywhere as long as the surface was reasonably flat use a rope tied like this
