Seems we've all had our share of grunt work. Worked in bluestone quarries, cut timber, moved furniture, unloaded box cars, excavation work, standing on top of 3-4 story framed structures setting rafter trusses nearing 40 feet long. Yep, been there. Done that.

well when we sell the occasional gun safe i get to move a safe that weighs anywhere from 50-800 lbs.
Granted i have a pallet jack to move it on, you still have to lift it onto the jack.
