Inexpensive harbor freight electric 110 winch. Use them around the farm for lifting various things. Put the hook through the carboy handle. One hand on the control one to steady the carboy.

I strongly recommend a T-1000 for any heavy lifting. I might let you borrow mine some time.

Self propelled, 0 maintenance, 0 spillage, pretty ideal.


It was sent back in time to erase my existence, but inadvertantly stuck it's hand in my toaster while reaching for my throat. Fried it's motherboard and basically re-booted itself with no prime directive. It was a blank canvas.

So I told it that it's prime directive was to stand by my keezer and lift things in and out. been that way for 6 years. Highly recommend it!

Does get awkward when someone new comes over and wonders about the man just standing in my basement, but it's worth it!

Not everyone is as lucky as you are. Quit bragging and lets try to find some real solutions to this problem.

I did offer to lend him out!

You are right though, it would be temporary at best.

Yes you did. I could use him tonight (I imagine he could just run over). I just threw out my back getting out of my chair yesterday...man I'm getting old.

On his way! I was able to guess your address from your location under your avatar. You might want to consider being a little more vague!

I need him back Tuesday, I need to change the oil.
