Got this today from woodpeckers in an email.
This is great. I have a dolly that easily moves panels. But this does
that plus allows the panel to be raised to the tablesaw.
Better than others.
Got that same email this morning and was intrigued.
I'm getting too damn old to wrestle 3/4" full sheets. Would be nice to
hear some firsthand feedback on how well it works. Also wondered if I
had enough room to make it work.
My biggest issue with moving plywood is getting it out of the truck. It
then goes straight to the cutting table.
I saw this an tried to realistically determine if it would be helpful to me
in that regard. I did not.
Your case might be entirely different.
Yeah. Sounds like you need something that can move multiple sheets at
one time. Think you'd need some type of four wheeler that covers a
larger area of ground as well as having the ability to lock all the
wheels with one lever action.

Actually I use a 4 footer, my two feet and my wife's 2 feet. And some
times a neighbor's 2 feet. I garage faces the front of the house and my
neighbors drop in on me all of the time. Last Friday I had 5 different
neighbors drop in.
I back the truck in and we slide the sheets straight from the bed of the
pickup to the break down cutting platform.
You responded as if you were doing it all yourself. Someone helping
you is a different matter altogether.
Those neighbours dropping by, are they just browsing your current
build or are they looking for something more ~ getting you to help
them with a build, or perhaps borrow a Festool or three? :)

I always have help with the 3/4" sheets but could manage by myself by
parking closer to my cutting platform.
Typically just checking in and finding where they stand in line. ;~)
And most are women that drop in, they are the ones willing to spend
money. ;~) I have a Canadian neighbor that is always asking for me to
help her do something. Eh? she is my favorite, she will darn near run
up a ladder. LOL
I just received one of these (SWMBO is going to have my butt - four
orders from WoodPeckers hit the CC this month ;-).
The carrier is very well built but on the down side it's *not* a panel
carrier. It's quite heavy. You won't want to chuck a sheet on this
thing and carry it anywhere. The wheels are rather important. ;-) I
didn't do a lot with it tonight but I think it'll work really well. I
rarely have any help in the shop and often end up scratching sheets
fairly badly getting them up on my cutting table. I think this thing
will allow me to easily move sheets around my basement and moose them
up on the table without damage. It may not help get them out of my
truck into the basement, though. We'll see.
The legs latch spread, so it's pretty stable when lifting the sheet to
the horizontal position. It's rather nicely thought out, in that way.
The inline wheels make it fairly easy to move the panels around. I
have a similar setup on another panel toter (much lighter and easier
to carry sheets). It works well.
Bottom line, I think it was worth the $$ for my use but I can
certainly understand that it's not for everyone.
