The OTLvise makes moving slate a breeze. If you have to move slate everyday for a living....It is the way to go!

Just used mine Saturday. Even with a bum shoulder, I was able to move a 9' antique Brunswick, all by myself. No sweat, aches, or pains.

Well worth the investment.

Well I have since healed from my minor neck and back injury(October-Dec). It was a couple of months of being uncomfortable and being over that helps a TON. I also have taken on a second helper and I still help so it is really not bad at all with 2 guys and a spotter. I prefer using a helper and I am not interested in trying to replace him/ them with a dolly of any type.

I still plan on buying this stuff, just not a huge priority right now.
I am still not sold on the OTL dolly, the customer service or all the extras it comes with that I do not need or want. The price being DOUBLE the price of what I have researched, makes it easy for me.

TFT

P.s. I do not move slate every day and nor do I want that either!!!

The guy who owns our local pool hall had a nice slate carrier he made decades ago. He took an old bicycle and added two U shaped holders on the side with one simple strap. Put one holder at the back axle and one as far forward as possible hanging from the frame.

Simple and cheap, keep the hand brake in case you're going down a hill like at my place when I had to take it around to the back of the house.

They work great.
