I use the Austin Homebrew model (although I got it from anotehr place).
Nope, not really. There's really no need to pick it up, I just kneel on the floor and push it vigorously back and forth (holding the stopper on, with the carboy resting on the edge of it's base). It gets quite frothy.

I have the mix-stir and one other wine-degasser / mixer. I have tried using it for aeration and I find that shaking the carboy works much better.

I have mixed the heck out of my beer using these tools and they always quit fermenting before reaching terminal gravity. Now I shake or just use o2.

I just cool my wort in my bottling bucket then use the spigot to drain the wort into my primary fermenter. I never have any problems with aeration.
