Tilt, Load, Slide!
One great feature of BIGSLIDER™ is that you only need tilt your load 1/16th of an inch to get it started. And, BIGSLIDER™ is slick on both sides for easy loading and unloading. Simply slide, wheel, roll, walk, or scoot the load on to BIGSLIDER™. The more you get on, the easier it is! And, when you reach your destination, BIGSLIDER™ easily pulls out.
Does it really work on concrete?
Yes! BIGSLIDER™ is used on concrete by homeowners on driveways, by auto mechanics in garages, and by hardware stores - to move 500 lb chain barrels. It also works on grass, mud, snow, bricks, pea gravel, stones, stairs, carpet, tile and wood.
Remember BIGSLIDER™ is only 1/16” thick…so lay down cardboard to prevent tears and wear-through when pulling a heavy, rigid item over rough driveway concrete, asphalt, or jagged rocks such as a heavy potted plant or footed chest of drawers on rough driveway concrete.
Clean sheet and floors thoroughly prior to using on hardwood floors or other fragile surfaces.
What's the rope for?
The rope keeps the load on BIGSLIDER™ while pulling over flat, inclined, or bumpy surfaces. The rope also extends BIGSLIDER™ length for ergonomic pulling (see here). Tie a knot or Handle Extension at hand height to pull from a standing position.
Thread the rope through the tail, and BIGSLIDER™ curves around irregular loads to secure them while sliding. Or, throw the rope around the lower perimeter of boxes, bookcase, or chest. Then thread through the hand hole to keep the load and BIGSLIDER™ pulling the same direction at the same time. BIGSLIDER™ turning radius is the same as the loads footprint.
Make a Sling
Thread rope through corner holes, then bring ends through hand hole. Wrap rope around handle, then tie a half knot or Extension Handle at palm height.
Thread rope through one corner hole from underneath BIGSLIDER™, throw rope over load, thread back down through other corner hole. Bring both rope ends through hand hole, wrap around handle, tie knot or Extension Handle at palm height. The more you pull, the tighter the rope holds the load.
Lift vs. Slide Leverage
BIGSLIDER™ is a highly leveraged tool that helps you to get work done by yourself. What’s hard to carry is easy to slide. For example, if the carpet in your office is like that in an airport or mall – i,e., no pile and little padding – you will experience about the same leverage as pulling on a concrete driveway (250 lb load converts to about a 75 lb pull = 3x advantage). “Stickiest” to “Slickest” surfaces are: grass (2x), carpet, concrete (3x), pea gravel, wood, and tile (5x). In other words, a 50 lb mulch bag is about a 22 lb pull on grass, and a 150 lb armoire is about a 30 lb pull on tile.
Lawn and Leaf Bags
Form BIGSLIDER™ Utility Mover into a cylinder; hold in place through the bag then pull bag over cylinder. Lay on side; rake directly in. Or, place upright to use like a big trash can. BIGSLIDER™ reinforces to prevent sticks from tearing the bag, and you can pack the bag extra tight, filling it extra full. Don’t let your hard work dribble down the driveway! Use BIGSLIDER™ to take your bags to trash or curb so bag doesn’t break or rip. Click here to see how easily you can move six 39 gal bags in one trip.Buy Now
