  • Moving Slate

    Hi guys

    Need some advice.

    I need to move slate for my snooker table up two flights of stairs.

    Is there any special equipment available to assist or is it just as simple as hard graft

      I have stopped carrying slates upstairs now because of joint problems in arms and back , 41 years of doing this has made it's mark on me .

              Marvelous machine, but for the cost of hiring something like that I would just bite the bullet and do the hard work!

              Get a trolley or pallet truck to move the slate as far as possible- to the foot of the stairs etc. No point making it too difficult.

                That looks clever but I bet it wouldn't take the weight of slates

                  It can take up to 600 kilo's, so that will be 3 pieces of slate at one go. Dunno what the price of this is but i'll bet it's expensive. Maybe an investment for a professional fitter

                      Ive already got a piano trolley.

                      Shame I bought it after we had unloaded the slate off the truck lol

                        Piano trolley is ideal.

                        Regarding Stevie, the blue flashing lights when he shifts safes probably spur him on.
