Outdoor Cleanup and Preparation Before Winter

An ounce of preparation is better than a pound of repair. In other words, a little work now to get your property ready for the winter can save you a lot of time, effort, and money in the long run.

What follows is a collection of some of the areas on which winter temperatures can wreak the most havoc and steps that can be taken to prevent avoidable damage.

 



Filling Cracks and Sealing Holes

Winter weather conditions are notorious for turning property’s cracks, holes, and gaps into big problems. They let cold air into homes, raising heating bills, they allow water in to freeze and crack surrounding material, and more.

So before winter falls, walk around the property looking for cracks and holes. Pay particular attention to walkways, driveways, and sidewalks, plus any feature that includes pavers and paving sand. Get enough paving sand to accommodate your property and fill in any gaps and compensate for the settling and packing that inevitably happens.

Gaps, cracks, and holes in mortar (used to bond bricks or stones), are fairly easy to patch with fresh mortar and a trowel. For smaller cracks, find the tubes of quick-drying mortar-patch that can be mounted in a caulk gun. Quick-drying mortar-patch or actual caulk, depending on the building material used, can be used to fill gaps around doors and windows through which cold air flows in. (Just be sure you don’t seal any doors or windows shut!)

Bags of paving sand and mortar are heavy, so if you don’t have one, consider investing in a dependable collapsible hand truck to haul these materials around. Your back will thank you and you’ll have an easier (and safer!) time getting the job done.

Organizing Snow Removal Equipment

The last thing you’ll want to do after that first big snowfall, particularly if you’re in a hurry, is fumble through the clutter in your freezing garage at 6a.m., trying to uncover the snow shovels or a snow blower. Well before the first snowfall, or the first rain that freezes into ice on your driveway and walkway, organize your winter gear.

If you have a snow blower, be sure it’s accessible, gassed up, has oil, and runs. Ensure that the snow shovels aren’t buried in a jumble of old sleeping bags and the badminton net no one’s used for years. And stock up on ice melt before there’s ice. That ice melt, like paving sand, is heavy and is something else for which that convertible hand truck will come in handy. A dependable hand truck can also help you move heavy boxes or items around that your winter essentials might be buried behind.

Winterize the Fluids

The most important fluid to concern yourself with is the fuel in the gas tanks of your lawnmower and anything else that requires gasoline. Left alone, that fuel will begin to decompose in the engine and begin “varnishing” the carburetor. That’s going to cause a lot of trouble come spring. The ethanol in most gasoline will also dissolve plastic and rubber, and attracts moisture, which corrodes the metal. To avoid this, drain the gas tank, run the engine dry of gas, or add a stabilizer.

Check the garage and any sheds or outbuildings for any liquids that could freeze over the winter. Even if it’s a fluid you don’t mind freezing and being ruined, the expansion will crack its container and leave you with a huge mess. Take those fluids, including any latex paints, which freezing will ruin, into the basement or somewhere heated.

And don’t forget to empty birdbaths and anything else with standing water. Unscrew your hoses and store them in a structure indoors or out. If you have sprinklers, call a sprinkler company to blow them out. You should also clean the gutters.

Finally, purchase(or cut) and stack any firewood you’ll need and call a chimney sweep to get your fireplace ready for it. Then, with your home prepped for cold weather, gather the ingredients for warm drinks, and enjoy the winter.

Essential Equipment Every Moving Truck Needs

Having the right equipment in a moving truck (and using it) is a necessity for both professional movers and amateurs who’ve rented a truck or are equipping the one they own. The appropriate use of the following tools, having protective equipment for the movers and their goods, and the rest of the mover’s gear should make the process of moving a bit more painless.

 



General Lifting

The equipment needed for lifting heavy things are obviously essential for a moving truck. One of the most basic, but most helpful, is the hand truck. A single person can use one to move smaller appliances and furniture or a stack of heavy boxes. They cut down moving time and lessen the chances of strained backs or drop-damaged microwaves.

Basic moving straps are surprisingly effective at allowing two people who aren’t bodybuilders to lift things bigger and heavier than they would have guessed. However, knowing limits is extremely important. That includes both the limits of the people doing the moving as well as the limits of the equipment and moving straps.

Specialized Moving Equipment

There are certainly situations in which the moving straps, the hand truck, and even the hand lift truck aren’t the right tools for the job. For instance: What do you do when you’re faced with stairs? Stairs are notoriously difficult to navigate and a leading risk of injury to both movers and whatever they’re moving. Enter the stair climbing cart. These are, as the name suggests, carts that have been specifically designed to carry loads safely and effectively up and down stairs.

Another exceedingly helpful piece of specialty equipment is the appliance hand truck. For large appliances, those outside the safe load capacity of a traditional hand truck or straps, and loads too bulky for a hand lift truck, you can depend on an appliance hand truck to get the job done.

Securing Straps and Furniture Sliders

Both of these are moving essentials that aren’t always considered when someone’s picking up the boxes, hand truck, packing tape, and the like. Securing straps are far superior to bungees or rope for keeping your stuff in the bed of a truck, keeping it from crushing your other things, or otherwise keeping it still. For the heaviest furniture and appliances, particularly valuable ones, consider investing in some ratchet straps to guarantee immobility.

Furniture sliders also protect your property and make the moving process easier. These are attached to the feet of heavy furniture, making it way easier to move them across surfaces (like that beautiful hardwood floor), without damaging the surfaces or item. Furniture sliders are one of those moving accessories that, once you’ve used them, you wonder how you ever moved without them.

Personal Protective Equipment

Unless it’s literally just a few light boxes, whenever you’re moving, wear leather gloves. During a move there area number of ways fingers can get pinched, cut, crushed, jammed, skinned—you name it—while carrying heavy things and using moving equipment. A face mask or respirator should be worn if your move is going to be stirring up dust. Steel-toed boots are also worth considering.

Avoiding Material Handling Risks in the Warehouse

Safe material handling and general warehouse safety are features of warehouse work that benefit everyone. For management, it means lower insurance liability and vulnerability, not paying out workers’ comp, and not losing labor time or productivity to injury. Most importantly, it means that their employees are not being injured in avoidable accidents. And for employees, obviously, not being injured is a pretty compelling benefit.



Many of the following potential hazards (and the strategies for avoiding them) may seem like common sense. However, it’s the day-to-day, rather than the exotic risks, responsible for injuries to warehouse workers who may take the risks for granted.

Forklift Safety

This one’s likely no surprise. When there are vehicles cruising around a warehouse, driven by someone whose vision is often obscured by the load, there are bound to be some accidents. Accidents can be the result of either driver or pedestrian error. Both parties get used to forklifts, they couldn’t not. And eventually, the often semi-perpetual honking of even the most attentive drivers can fade into the background for warehouse workers.

There’s no magic bullet for forklift safety. Drivers and those on foot simply need to remain alert. Forklift maintenance also needs to be prioritized and regularly carried out. Loads need to be both properly secured and a reasonable weight for the forks. One surefire way to reduce forklift accidents is to use them only when necessary. In tight spaces or other situations that call for it, use a heavy duty hand truck or a hand lift truck.

Know Your Limits and Use the Tools Available

Most warehouses are equipped with the tools necessary for the job. And much of the time, injuries occurring from the failure to use a tool or the use of the wrong tool isn’t a result of the proper tool not being there.

Instead, it can seem easier just to lift those empty pallets or move that stack of stock by hand rather than spending the time to get the pallet-jack or roll over those hand trucks. However, it becomes considerably less easy to do the job, or anything else, when a back is thrown out by carrying too much, stumbling while carrying something, or even just by twisting the wrong way with arms full. When in doubt, or when the job calls for it, opt for the equipment that makes the task safer.

Slipping and Tripping

It’s not all about whether to use the hand cart or the dolly; sometimes injuries can be the result of just walking from one place to another. When warehouse workers are complying with workplace safety standards, tripping is almost always the result of someone leaving something in the wrong place with high foot traffic. Avoiding the misplacement of stock or anything else is always important. At least as important is the checking, maintenance, and safe use of ladders. Especially considering that ladders are responsible for nearly half of all fatal falls in the U.S.

Meanwhile, the list of things that people can slip on is too long for this space, but can include wet or greasy floors, electrical cords or cables in the wrong place, sawdust, gravel, and weather hazards like ice and snow, as well as freshly polished or waxed floors, etc.

Basically, warehouse employees should always be aware of their surroundings. They should also always wear the appropriate personal protective equipment for the job, like close-toed shoes with good traction, gloves, and hard hats and eye protection when necessary. And they should obey the appropriate safety regulations. Doing so and using the appropriate equipment for the job makes a warehouse workplace safer for everyone.

Avoiding the Most Common Moving Injuries

For a lot of us, moving is one of the few times we’re lifting and transporting heavy, bulky, or awkward loads any distance. That’s also a reason why moving can actually be dangerous and result in injuries if one is not careful.


Thankfully, most of the injuries that result from moving can be avoided with some planning, restraint, and the use of appropriate tools. Below are some of the most common injuries that can result from moving and some the best ways to avoid them.

Strained Back

Among the most common and debilitating of all moving injuries, a back injury on moving day is generally the result of mishandling a heavy load. Whether one is lifting without equipment, with the wrong equipment, or using an improper technique, a back injury can put your move on hold. As is the case with the other injuries listed here, however, hurting your back during a move is also almost entirely avoidable.

The most effective strategies for keeping the back out of harm’s way aren’t very original, but they work. Before lifting anything sizable, be sure to stretch your back, arms, legs, shoulders, and hips. And, as cliché as it is, lift with your legs—it absolutely makes a difference. You should bend at your knees (Not at your back!) and hold the weight close to your body to help prevent injury.

The other half of an effective back-safety strategy is using the right tools. A dependable collapsible hand truck can prove a godsend for moving items. Collapsible hand trucks are great because they can be used as a standard two-wheel, vertical, small-platform hand truck, or they can become a (typically) four-wheeled, horizontal, long-platform pushcart-style dolly.

Inguinal Hernia

Hernias are a common ailment that can because, during moving, by straining when picking something up. The result of a small section of intestine pushing through the abdominal wall, direct inguinal hernias are painful and can be dangerous, sometimes requiring surgery.

Appropriately, the trick to avoiding herniation is not lifting anything that’s going to require excessive straining. Once again, that means having the right tools. For instance, if the move necessitates carrying heavy boxes, furniture, or appliances up or down stairs, that can involve not only straining with every step but risking other injuries as well.

The right tool in the case of moving big loads on stairs is a stair climbing cart. A stair climbing cart is a hand truck that is specially engineered to carry loads up and down stairs. They significantly reduce the risk of runaway, dropped, or tipped loads crashing down staircases. This is not only dangerous for the person carrying the load, but also for anyone else on the stairs as well.

Finger and Toe Injuries

Injuries to fingers and toes can sound less painful or debilitating than the earlier injuries. That perspective, however, might very well change once you’ve experienced one of them. Common trauma to digits during a move include: dropping things on them, stubbing them on items, and getting them mashed between two hard objects.

First off, always wear work gloves when moving more than a few light boxes. Even when you think they’re unnecessary, it can’t hurt to have them. Additionally, ensuring that there are no obstacles on the path being used for a move is always important. You don’t want to stub your toes on something you can’t see while carrying something bulky. Falls like that have been responsible for many bad sprains and wrist fractures.

And again, use the right equipment: You don’t want to drop a too-heavy load on your toes. Employing the use of the appropriate hand truck for the job can save your back and help prevent other injuries to make for a much more pleasant moving day.

Tips for Moving Out of an Apartment

An argument could be made that whatever sort of abode you’re moving from, moving is moving. You pack your stuff up, use a traditional hand truck to load up the trailer or truck, unpack it in the new place, and you’re done. Always a time-consuming hassle, but basically the same thing whether you’re moving out of a house or apartment, right?


Not exactly. There are some definite differences between moving out of an apartment and a house. Recognizing those differences and taking them into account can mean the difference between a successful move and a miserable, and even injury-risking, disaster.

Finishing Up the Apartment Move-Out Necessities

One of the primary differences between moving out of a house and an apartment is that it’s a near-certainty that the apartment is arental. So, in addition to giving your notice (of course), be sure to tie off all the details necessary when moving out of a rental, such as:

· Turn in all keys, including your mail key

· Make sure you’re paid up completely

· Give everything a deep clean, including the bathtub and kitchen appliances

· Patch any holes in the walls

· Fix or replace any little broken items like toilet seats, change light bulbs, etc.

In addition to these steps, consider requesting a pre-move inspection with the property manager that includes a record of anything damaged or missing to help avoid any surprise fees or a depleted security deposit. It’s wise to take pictures of the state of anything that you might think could be disputed.

Use the Right Tools and Know Your Limits

Most moving injuries are avoidable. They’re often the result of people not following the basic safety procedures and not knowing (or ignoring) their limits. The “lazy man’s load,” carrying too much or something too heavy, can cost a lot more time in the long run. Moving injuries are particularly unfortunate because there are so many tools available to avoid them.

Something as simple as lifting straps can save a lot of time, strain, and back pain. Hand trucks and dollies are likewise great for lifting heavy furniture or appliances and stacks of boxes. Be sure to use the appropriate tools. Many apartment moves require going up and down stairs. That can prove inconvenient and even dangerous during a move. For moving heavy appliances, boxes, or furniture up and down stairs, utilize a dependable stair climbing cart. Injuries resulting from the loss of control of something heavy on stairs can be very serious.

Time Your Move

Another feature of apartment moves that doesn’t apply to house moves is the other people in an apartment building. Chances are that you are aware of what times of day are busiest in your apartment building, the kind of pedestrian rush hour of people coming and going. Usually, those high-traffic, apartment building rush hours correspond roughly with the actual traffic rush hours, before and after work.

As such, it’s best to plan moves for the periods between the mornings and evenings of weekdays, or on the weekend. That’s not only the most convenient approach to moving out of an apartment, for both you and everyone else in the building, it’s also a matter of safety. Trying to squeeze past other people down staircases or even through narrow hallways can result in injuries to the movers and other residents.

Wheelbarrow vs. Hand Truck: The Best Device for Yard Work and Landscaping

Landscaping can be a deeply gratifying experience while increasing the value of property and simply making a home or business a more attractive, pleasing place to be. However, like all good things, it requires work.
That work can and probably will be tough, but with the right equipment it doesn’t have to be a miserable, inefficient, or strain-inducing experience. There are too many specific work tools for the different sorts of landscaping and yard work projects to cover here, but the best tools for carting material to and from a worksite is manageable territory.

Though if there’s a single piece of advice that applies to the heavy lifting associated with any project, it’s that old landscaper’s maxim: “Use your head before your back.” To which the addition of, “And always wear a good pair of leather gloves,” can’t hurt.

Wheelbarrow

The wheelbarrow is the unofficial godfather of the landscape and yard work material-moving equipment family. For millions of yard workers and DIY landscapers, the wheelbarrow is the tool for moving anything and everything they’re using for the project. It just doesn’t occur that there’d be a better device for the job.

That popularity makes sense. The wheelbarrow is a centuries-old godsend to the human back that has made millions of projects much more manageable. And it is great for some applications. It’s got great maneuverability, and for moving loose soil over relatively flat ground it can’t be beat. However, there are a number of applications for which the wheelbarrow doesn’t stand up as well.

Hand Truck

Hand trucks are terrific for moving heavy, solid (or bagged) things from point A to point B. They are preferable in this to the wheelbarrow for several reasons. Not having to lift said heavy thing into the wheelbarrow is one benefit. Additionally, a hand truck’s platform can be slid under items such as big rocks; slabs of stone; bags of concrete, fertilizer, mulch, compost, etc. and lifted up using leverage rather than leg and back-straining brute force.

Plus, a hand truck’s two wheels provide a stability advantage. There’s nothing more frustrating than the wheelbarrow’s terminal wobble leading to a tip-over. And if you have ever had the wheel of a wheelbarrow you’re pushing butt against something that stops it, jamming one of those handles into your stomach, you’re aware how unpleasant it is.

For landscaping and yard work, both for navigating variable, uneven, or inclined or declined terrain, choose a hand truck with big, pneumatic tires.

Convertible Hand Truck

An additional advantage of hand trucks is that they are also available in convertible models, also known as a collapsible hand truck. Convertible hand trucks break down from two wheels to four, more like a traditional dolly (but one with handles) than an upright hand truck. It’s a convenient feature for moving longer material like planks, logs, rolls of weed barrier, lumber, and the like.

What it comes down to is choosing the right tool for the project. Wheelbarrows are great for moving loose material and maneuvering over uneven or obstacle-laden terrain. Traditional hand trucks are preferable for the moving of anything solid, heavy, and stackable that can fit on its platform. A convertible hand truck is perfect for jobs that call for a hand truck and the moving of longer material. Good luck and good landscaping!

Material Handling by Hand: The Best Hand Truck for the Job

If you’ve had to move loads of anything by hand, you’re probably aware that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to doing so. The proper equipment can mean the difference between a smooth, productive job and a frustrating, inefficient, protracted, and even dangerous one.
Knowing that, however, doesn’t necessarily guarantee understanding what the right hand truck for the job is. With that in mind, the following is a quick guide outlining which hand truck works best in certain situations. It’s by no means fully comprehensive, as every job has details, challenges, and features that make it unique. But hopefully, it helps.

Traditional Hand trucks

The hand truck is the workhorse of the materials handling gear suite and is ideal for carrying boxes, bags, books, packages, smaller appliances, etc. Basically, if what you need to move is relatively small and/or stackable, a hand truck is a strong choice for the job. They’re also quite maneuverable and easy to use.

But keep in mind that basic hand trucks do have some limitations. For instance, they can be tricky to maneuver over uneven terrain and challenging to use if one is trying to move large, broad, long, or otherwise awkwardly shaped items. If you’re trying to transport something sizeable, a standard hand truck’s relatively small L-shaped platform might not provide enough room for your cargo.

Hand Lift Truck

The hand lift truck is like a miniature, hand-operated forklift. Its powered platform can lift hundreds of pounds of material in and out of spaces that forklifts can’t access, and they do so without requiring that the user have super-human strength. Some hand lift trucks are powerful enough to lift a car wheel (attached to a car) off the ground, providing access to the undercarriage. If your business or domestic work involves the repeated moving of heavy loads and you don’t want to shell out for a forklift, consider a hand lift truck.

Stair Climbing Cart

Stair climbers are hand trucks that are either powered to climb up and down stairs or are outfitted with the specialized glide bars, wheels, sometimes brakes, and other features or accessories that are engineered to make a hand truck stair-friendly.

If you have work that involves moving anything up and down stairs, a stair climbing cart is well worth it. Using a basic hand truck or other equipment to move loads up and down stairs can not only result in whatever you’re carrying taking a tumble down those stairs, it can prove dangerous for the mover and anyone else on or nearby the stairs. If you’re considering buying a hand truck, look for one that can accommodate a stair climbing conversion kit, which can be purchased inexpensively.

Appliance Hand Truck

The appliance hand truck is the hand truck-plus. Specifically designed for moving big, bulky appliances, the appliance hand truck has a weight/load-bearing capacity that is generally twice as much, at least, as that of the traditional hand truck. They typically come equipped with four wheels with the additional two wheels usually controlled by a lever near or attached to the handle that can rapidly deploy or retract the extra wheels quickly. Appliance hand trucks are also usually fitted with a robust braking system to prevent the truck from rolling out of control under heavy loads.

Whichever hand truck you choose, make sure it’s a high-quality model from a company with a good reputation, such as Magline, who has been in the business of providing material transporting solutions for over 70 years. After all, a hand truck is the last tool you want failing while in use.

Can you Handle that Piano? When to Call in the Pros and When to DIY

According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the typical American will move more than 11 times in his or her life, often for a new job, a better home, or a cheaper cost of living.
This means that if you’re like most Americans, you’re likely to face the daunting task of packing and transporting your household items for a move across the street or across the country. While arduous and time-consuming, you can usually conquer a move with the help of some moving equipment, a hand cart, boxes, and a few strong friends. However, there are some items, such as a piano, that might make you reconsider that DIY move.

Professional movers can provide valuable expertise when moving fragile and bulky items. With professional-grade equipment like a heavy duty hand truck, professionals can take the stress out of a move.

If you’re still thinking of moving a heavy, bulky, or complex item like a piano on your own, there are several considerations to keep in mind to make your move as stress-free as possible. The suggestions and tips below can help reduce the chances of damaging your item or straining your body.

Understand the Magnitude

Even a small piano can weigh 400-500 pounds, and a grand piano can weigh as much as 900 pounds. Pianos are also bulky, ranging from four to five feet tall, five to nine feet long, and two to three feet wide.

In addition, pianos are very fragile, and a grand piano may have over 10,000 separate parts. Considerable care must be taken to ensure that these small parts do not fall or dislodge inside the item.

Get the Right Moving Supplies

Moving a piano will require more equipment than typical household items. You’ll likely need to rent or borrow moving blankets to avoid scratches and dents. You will also want to have moving straps on hand to hold parts in place such as the piano lid.

Most importantly though, you will need to choose the right equipment to move a piano, taking into consideration the type of move you’re about to make and if the load will have to go up and down stairs.

Depending on the size of your piano, the experts at Magline can help you select what’s appropriate from their wide range of dollies, hand trucks, and more to make your move as easy as possible. Magline’s inventory of specialized hand trucks can move and secure items as large as 1,000 pounds safely and easily, protecting both you and your equipment.

Enlist Help

Given the size and bulk of a piano, you should aim to have a friend positioned on at least every side of the item. This could mean anywhere from four to six people involved in transporting a piano, depending on its size. Additionally, target your fittest friends and practice safe lifting since a piano can weigh over 500 pounds.

Measure Doorways, Stairs, and Hallways

The only thing worse than moving a bulky item once is moving it twice. Measure the width of every hallway, doorway, and stairwell to make sure your piano can fit.

Know What to Protect

As mentioned, pianos have many fragile parts, and it’s important to know how to protect both the interior and exterior. Consider removing the legs of your piano, being careful not to let the piano hit the ground too hard. Also use blankets and towels to wrap the exterior of the piano, including the lid and pedals, and tie or lock the top down.

Ready to Lift?

The most important thing to remember when moving a piano is balance. Secure furniture straps underneath the piano, and, with the help of your moving team, slowly lift the piano, keeping it upright and even. Have someone move a wheeled dolly or specialized hand truck under the piano, and then slowly lower it down.

This strategy should work when transporting a piano down the hall or into the next room. However, if you need to move a piano down or up the stairs or relocate it entirely, consider enlisting the help of professional movers, or, at the very least, consult with the experts at Magline who can help connect you with the right moving equipment for even the most daunting moves. Whether you’re packing up your whole house or moving a bulky item, Magline is here to help.

Practical Planning for Square Foot Gardening

With the increasing popularity of urban farming, backyard beekeeping, and chicken coops, square foot gardening (SFG) has been attracting a great deal of attention. It makes sense, as SFG not only provides people without a lot of room the means to produce a truly impressive quantity of veggies or ornamentals, but it also optimizes yield and can increase output several times over.
However, the initial establishment of a square foot garden can be a bit of an investment of time, money, and energy. It’s the energy that will be addressed here—primarily how to make the best use of it and what materials and tools can help ease the job.

Plan on Some Heavy Lifting

The archetypal SFG setup is a raised bed or group of uniform raised beds, commonly about four feet by four feet. The soil in those beds has been separated by a grid into individual plots that are usually about one square foot. Each plot has a specific, designated number of plants determined by the size of the plot and the species of flora being planted.

SFG features a specific “soil” type that’s not topsoil, potting soil, or garden soil. It’s a specific blend that consists of a third of peat moss, vermiculite, and composts. That’s “composts,” plural because SFG plots tend to do better with as diverse a mixture of composts as you can find, such as cow manure, chicken manure, spent mushroom substrate, etc. There are also bags of premixed specific SFG blends (though many purists frown on those).

While the traditional SFG guides suggest a soil depth of six inches, that will considerably limit what you can grow, which is why 12-inch deep plots are gaining popularity. Foot-deep soil means more diversity of plant life, but it also means you’ll need to haul twice as many materials to your SFG site. And, unless you already have empty raised beds in place, you’ll also be carrying in the wood and hardware to build the beds, or will be transporting prefab beds.

The Best Tools for the Job

Nothing has more potential to make the SFG process less fun than strain-waddling under the crushing weight of a 3-4 cubic foot bale of compressed peat moss or hauling a couple dozen bags of compost from your car to your SFG plot. Thankfully, the process can be made far more efficient and less strenuous by employing the right tools.

While many gardeners opt for the wheelbarrow, a good collapsible hand truck offers many benefits. Aside from saving your back from having to lift materials into a wheelbarrow, a hand truck will offer a less wobbly trip, which will lessen the chances of your load ending up on the ground. Also, no one ever got jabbed in the gut from a hand truck’s handle—which is more than what could be said for when a wheelbarrow’s single wheel butts into something that a hand truck would roll over.

The collapsible hand truck is also great because it can be handily converted from a standard hand truck configuration to a handled, four-wheeled dolly. The dolly arrangement is optimal for hauling boards, prefab planting beds, or other longer, more awkward material.

If the SFG site is situated on a plot that requires hauling supplies up and down stairs, definitely consider a stair climbing cart, which is designed explicitly for navigating stairs.

Whatever tools work best for your specific situation, investing in the right gear can be the difference between a smooth path to a great outdoor hobby, and a whole lot of frustration, time, and energy wasted—as well as unnecessary back pain. Good luck and happy planting!

The Best Equipment to Keep Your Employees Safe During an Office Move

Office safety is always a priority, for insurance costs, OSHA standards, avoiding workers’ comp payouts, and most importantly of course, so your employees don’t get hurt! And moving an office presents specific hazards that can be mitigated or eliminated with proper planning and the right gear. That planning and appropriate gear use applies both to a full-scale relocation of an office to another space or location and the day-to-day lifting and moving of office equipment and supplies.
The routine stuff—replacing the water cooler jug, picking up a box of printer paper, etc.—can be even riskier as its repetition and mundanity can lead to carelessness. So to keep your office safe and injury-free, educate your employees (and yourself) on the following best practices for office moving.

Using Hand Trucks, Dollies, or U-Boats

Not only do these wheeled wonders make moving a lot safer, they’re great time-savers that increase the efficiency of a move exponentially. Using the right gear for the job is at least as important as using the equipment at all. Misusing these moving aids will not only slow the process down, it also poses a risk to both the person using it and the item being moved.

First off, the terms “hand truck” and “dolly” are often conflated. They actually aren’t the same thing. A basic hand truck is a “L” shaped platform mounted on a handled frame with two wheels. While a dolly is a flat platform that typically rests on four wheels. Hand trucks are best for stacking generally smaller, heavy items. They can also be used for appliances, etc. that the platform is pushed under and which will remain on the platform safely when the hand truck is leaned backward for transport.

If whatever’s on the hand truck is wobbly or otherwise unstable, or if the mover is straining considerably to move it, go with another option. A hand lift truck can lift up to 350 pounds without strain to the user’s back. Dollies have wider platforms for moving heavier items than a hand truck can handle; more of them; and broader, bigger, or more awkwardly shaped items, devices, and appliances.

U-boats are like a hybrid of hand trucks and dollies. (Think of the mechanisms that bellboys use to move lots of luggage at fancy hotels, but for commercial and industrial use.) They’re called “U-boats” because they have raised handle frames on each end of the platform, like a “U.” They are handy for higher stacking and travelling across less even terrain, and in some cases can have better maneuverability than dollies.

The Right Tool for the Job

Hand trucks, dollies, and U-boats are great, but they have limitations. For instance, you wouldn’t want to use them for taking heavy items up and down the stairs. Thankfully, you can secure a stair climbing cart for precisely that purpose. Likewise, carrying those big water cooler jugs, particularly more than one, can be awkward at best, even with a traditional hand truck. However, bottled water trucks are available for exactly that purpose.

Things to Remember

If there’s a takeaway here, it’s that the proper use of moving equipment means increased safety for employees and the materials being transported. Below are a few other considerations that contribute to moving safety:

 

  • Ensure that employees wear the appropriate clothes for a move. Suits, dress shoes, and heels aren’t very conducive to moving heavy objects.
  • Remember that forever-applicable moving maxim: Lift with your legs, not your back.
  • Pack heavier items in small boxes.
  • Keep all moving paths clear of obstructions and tripping hazards—exits and entrances included.
  • Moving kicks up dust. Keep that in mind for employees who suffer from allergies, asthma, or any other pulmonary issues. Providing masks or respirators is wise.
  • Take breaks: It’s important to rest and recharge while moving.
  • Finally, know your limits and the limits of your employees and recognize when a job requires calling in the pros. Good luck!

11 Tips and Tricks for Moving Your Kid to College

Moving your child to college is a milestone event. Use these tips to plan ahead, so the day you drop them off is as stress-free as possible.

1. Coordinate with roommates

You don’t want to end up with two printers and two televisions in a tiny dorm room. Encouraging detailed conversations between your kid and their roommate will save you from buying, packing, and carting items they won’t need to the room.

2. Stock up before you go

Take the time to purchase plates, cups and necessary kitchen items such as pots, pans, and mixing bowls, as well as sheets, blankets, and the other items they’ll need for their room. Stocking up on these items in a college town, especially a small college town, can be difficult if everyone else has the same idea.

3. Beat the crowd

Choose a later move-in time to avoid the crowds of overeager students and their parents. You’ll have more room in the hallways and stairs to move boxes and such, and with any luck, their roommate will already be settled in the room, giving you extra space to get your kiddo organized.

4. Utilize hand trucks

Even if your child is a conservative packer, they are still going to bring everything they need to survive six months or more without you. Make your trips to the dorm room count with a hand truck (or two!) that can carry far more than you could alone. Your move will be more productive, and you’ll have more time to help unpack or celebrate the event with a meal before you head out.

Looking for a multi-purpose moving tool? Consider a collapsible hand truck. These can be used upright or convert into a four-wheel dolly for greater functionality.

5. Do the bed set up first

Many dorm room beds elevate so the desk or dresser can slide underneath it. This setup will make the room feel larger and less confined. By doing the bed set up first, you can configure how the rest of the room fits together rather quickly. Plus, that extra room underneath is a good place to pile things until they can get settled.

6. Invest in a mattress cover

You have no idea how many students that twin mattress has survived. That’s why it’s wise to invest in a mattress protector that will act as a barrier between your child and the mystery mattress. If you can, get one that zips so it won’t bunch up under the sheets.

7. Bring extension cords

There are normally only two to three electrical outlets per side in a dorm room, which isn’t sufficient for all of the things that will inevitably be plugged in. By packing extension cords and a surge protector your kid will be charged up and you’ll sidestep any outlet fights.

8. Purchase a toolkit

Purchasing a basic toolkit for your child to keep in their room is a very good idea. You’ll likely have need of one during the move, and if your student wants to adjust their bed height, hang art, or needs to fix something, a toolkit will come in handy.

9. Cleaning supplies

You may be under the impression that your child will clean without you there, but the likelihood is they will not. Help nudge them in the right direction by buying cleaning supplies that are easy to use and toss, like disinfecting wipes, paper towels, and cleaning sprays. They’ll only do basic cleaning, so don’t bother stocking them up in the hopes they’ll clean as you do.

10. Don’t forget protective footwear

The floor situation in many dorm rooms is atrocious. There is no 5-second rule, and you definitely don’t want to chance it with bare feet, especially in the bathrooms. Ensure that slippers and shower shoes make it into the moving boxes.

11. Find the nearest pharmacy

You won’t want your kiddo wandering around in search of a pharmacy when they have need of one at 2 in the morning. Scope out the nearest pharmacy, stock up on cold medicine and a first aid kit, and plan the route to and from their dorm.

Moving Accessories That Make the Whole Process Simpler

Moving day is never easy. Even if you have the funds to hire movers, it’s possible something will be misplaced, damaged, or completely destroyed. If you don’t have the spare funds for movers, it’s important to have the tools necessary to ensure a smooth move. Planning ahead can really save you time, muscle pain, and stress on moving day. Below are tools that will improve your moving experience.

Gloves

Protect your hands from the dangers of moving with a sturdy pair of leather gloves. Durable gloves will limit the cuts, scrapes, and blisters you’re likely to incur on moving day.

Convertible hand truck

A convertible hand truck is your go-everywhere solution. It’s perfect for moving jobs that you aren’t anticipating, or when the short nose on a hand truck just isn’t enough for the job. A convertible hand truck can be used as a regular hand truck with two wheels or can be extended to carry things horizontally on four wheels doubling the weight and hauling capacities.

Furniture dolly

A furniture dolly is an inexpensive moving accessory that will reduce your loading and unloading times. A dolly remains on the ground supported by four small wheels and can be used to move large, bulky items like washing machines and couches. The downside of this tool is you will need assistance getting big items on and off of it. However, it is an inexpensive resource, and you can purchase one for as little as twenty bucks.

Furniture glides

These are an invaluable item around the house in addition to being useful during a move. Furniture glides, or slides, are simply plastic disks with an extra-soft or smooth bottom that, when placed under a piece of heavy furniture, allow you to slide it with ease. Perfect for moving or rearranging a room solo, furniture glides are an inexpensive solution worth considering.

Appliance hand truck

An appliance hand truck will save your back on moving day. These devices are designed to reduce strain to the user, while also protecting them from ending up underneath the load. An appliance hand truck is an excellent tool for moving insanely heavy, awkward items such as refrigerators or safes.

Drill set

A drill set will make the takedown and removal of beds and other furniture much easier. Bag screws and other hardware for an item together and tape the bag to the item so they don’t get lost in the move.

Toolkit

While you might not need it, a toolkit is a great thing to have on hand in case you do. A handy moving toolkit should include a hammer, screwdrivers in varying sizes, a box cutter, scissors, and other items that will make your day run more smoothly.

Blankets and/or tarps

You’ll want to protect all of your things from the shifting that will occur in the vehicle while driving. Inevitably, things will rub and possibly smack against each other, so wrapping furniture, art, and valuables will protect them from damage.

Ratchet straps

Secure your load with strong, durable ratchet straps. Control how secure your load is easily with tension ratchets that offer more strength.

Tools That Will Improve Productivity at Your Small Business Warehouse

When you’re outfitting a small warehouse, it can be difficult to determine what tools are necessary for your production. Below are some suggestions with detailed explanations to get you started.

Hand lift truck

Easily lift awkward items with a hand lift truck. Capable of lifting over 300 pounds, this machine raises its base to meet the load at the height it needs to, and then can be adjusted to another height to unload. This reduces the likelihood of injury that can come with bending and lifting heavy objects or trying to carry too much in one trip. With multiple attachments, this is a machine that will be used daily in your warehouse.

Pallet jack

Pallet jacks are available in manual and powered options. If your warehouse is on the small side, a manual should be sufficient for your needs. A manual pallet jack utilizes a pump-operated hydraulic system and metal prongs to lift a pallet off the ground so it can be easily moved to where you need it.

Stock cart

A stock cart is a simple way to transport inventory from the warehouse to the storefront. Pile items that need to inventoried, restocked, or put back into the warehouse to transport materials in one quick back-and-forth load.

Motorized hand truck

Move loads up to a 1000 pounds on a flat surface with a motorized hand truck. Like its manual counterpart, a motorized hand truck can reduce the time needed to move a large, heavy load. Look for one that is packed with safety features like auto return to zero, regenerative braking, and automatic parking brake engagement to keep your staff safe and injury free.

Furniture dolly

A furniture dolly is a small, simple tool that remains on the ground supported by four small wheels. It is capable of moving a lot of weight for something so small, and it is an excellent solution to have as a backup on the warehouse floor.

Rolling ladder

Necessary for reaching high shelves for product stocking and restocking, a rolling ladder is a must-have for your warehouse. Better than a stationary ladder, a rolling option will make it simple to move without requiring setup or take down.

Pallet scale (shipping)

If you ship pallets out of your warehouse, you’ll want a pallet scale to calculate shipping rates with ease. A pallet scale can help you verify the weight of outgoing loads and reduce the chance of human error.

Anti-fatigue mat

Protect your employees while they stand for hours on end with anti-fatigue mats in high-use areas. A quality anti-fatigue mat can help keep workers comfortable by offering a padded surface on which to stand on.

Warehouse toolkit

You don’t want to have to search extensively every time you need a tool. Instead keep an organized toolbox that includes items that will get everyday use such as a pry bar, tape dispenser, box cutter, and hammer.

Why Your Hand Truck Should Be Crafted from Aluminum

For physically demanding tasks, hand trucks are a necessity. They aid in preventing injury from lifting while increasing productivity. While it may seem like a simple tool, there are many options that allow you to customize your hand truck to suit your needs.

For instance, you can choose between a manual model or a motorized model and the wheels can be selected based upon the ground you’ll be traversing. For example, a stair climbing dolly will move loads up and down stairs with ease. You can also choose a convertible option that allows you to change from two wheels to four wheels based on load requirements. And you can choose between steel and aluminum.

The benefits of aluminum far outweigh those of steel. Even the shark cages that protect divers from the fierce natural predators are crafted from aluminum. Aluminum can also have its strength increased even further by layering in additional elements during production. When choosing a hand cart, an aluminum frame will benefit you with its:

Lighter weight

The reduced weight of an aluminum hand truck has the potential to increase productivity and make your staff more efficient. With aluminum coming in at almost one third the weight of steel, it requires much less energy to push and pull a hand cart crafted from aluminum, allowing employees to do more while expending less energy.

Increased safety

Hand trucks crafted from aluminum reduce the risk of injury. That’s because they are lighter and easier to use. To further lessen the chance of injury, choose an aluminum model that has ergonomic features that help the user maintain correct posture and reduce the awkward movements that can lead to injury. These features are especially important if you’re choosing a stair climbing cart.

Reduced repair costs

While it might be true that aluminum can scratch or ding easier than steel, it is cheaper to repair compared to steel. In addition, aluminum has a high corrosion resistance due to the way it’s composed. Plus, repairs can be done quickly and easily, saving both time and money.

4 Tools to Save Your Back While Gardening

The love of gardening can often lead to sore, tender muscles, especially in the lower back and shoulders. The constant digging, lifting, bending, kneeling, and twisting motions made while preserving garden and vegetable beds contribute to this muscle sensitivity and soreness. To limit the motions that lead to sore, stiff muscles, consider investing in gardening tools and other resources that take the strain off your sensitive areas. Below are some ideas and products that can significantly reduce back and shoulder strain.


Hand truck 111-UA-1060

This heavy duty hand truck from Magline will easily haul things such as bags of gravel, bark, compost—even large plants from your car or garage into the yard to be used. With a 500-pound capacity and pneumatic tires, these hand trucks can carry large, bulky materials across uneven terrain and surfaces such as gravel.

Wheelbarrow

A great wheelbarrow will save your back while hauling dirt, rocks, compost, and other heavy items necessary for a thriving garden. The Spruce recently rated the Polar Trailer 8376 as the best-in-class wheelbarrow for 2018. Its large wheels are perfect for hauling materials across uneven terrain such as a backyard. This wheelbarrow features a unique design and 20-inch wheels composed of solid rubber to aid in avoiding flats. Weighing in at only 49 pounds, the Polar Trailer can transport 400 pounds within its 10 cubic feet of space without straining or buckling.

Potting bench

Keep all of your gardening gear organized in one area and limit the constant bending and twisting associated with potting with a potting bench. This device will raise your workspace up so you can pot while standing comfortably. In addition, a potting bench can elevate your outdoor entertaining by providing an additional space to display food and drinks.

Long-handled garden tools

When you use garden tools that feature a longer handle, you will experience less fatigue and increased productivity. That’s because the longer handle provides greater control and energy transference, making it more of a tool and less of an assistant. A longer tool will also extend your reach, meaning you can work further from the same position.

Standing weeding tool

Rather than kneeling in the dirt to weed your garden and vegetable beds, get a tool that allows you to stand and weed with minimal bending. The <href="#start=7">UpRoot® Weed and Root Remover will enable the user to pull even deep-rooted weeds easily. Simply position the metal claws above the center portion of the weed, then step on the lever and pull up. The claws will yank the weed out and then you can bring the tool up to hand-level in order to remove the weed from the claws. This entire process takes mere seconds. You’ll pull weeds faster and save your back.
