Hand Hauler. Long, heavy building materials can be difficult to lift and maneuver around job sites, especially by hand. The Blue Ox can help. It easily hauls up to 600 pounds while keeping the suspended load low and stable. The attached log tongs will grab logs, poles, timbers, and wood beams, or they can be replaced with a chain (included) to handle steel I-beams or bundles of pipe or rebar. To lift the load, you stand the Blue Ox up on end, attach the chain or tongs at the load's midpoint, then pull the handle down. The hauler is available from the manufacturer for $375. Action Manufacturing Systems, 800/547-6097.
