    Does anyone have experience in lifting solutions for computer printers that weigh over 50#?
    We have several remote facilities that are serviced by Computer technicians. The printers are currently being moved with dollies – We have no space for scissor carts.  Is there anyone in the computer installation business that has a solution?

    Hi Natalie,

    Our IT people use a Genie lift (http://www.genieindustries.com/ml-series/ml-1-2.asp) with a lifting sling to move heavy printers, CRT monitors, etc. It has a smaller footprint and is more maneuverable than most carts. The straps allow you to lift from above the object, so there’s no need to slide it over onto a platform, which typically involves some twisting. I’ve attached photos to show how it works.  Rick Goggins, CPE
