How to lift heavy things
How to lift heavy things without hurting yourself in the process. Lift cement bags or other heavy things & protect your back.
FUCKING LOVE IT! I've been lifting bags more like doing squats. I'm so trying it your way
Thanks so, so much for sharing your expert tips!!! I have to move several more bags of cement soon. Though I am a strong woman, moving cement sacks has been super hard, especially on my back. I know your technique will make my task far easier. Bless you!
I'm trying to find out how to lift a 680 pound rock thanks this will help long story short a huge ass rock fell on my porch from the sky m9 no b8 swear on me god m9
We're like hyperintelligent ants watching a fellow hyperintelligent ant give us the most important instructional video an ant could watch.
A nice instructional. Good on you!
How to lift something
How to lift something heavy up and out of a 100ft ravine using no modern technology -- just some sticks, junk boards, used nails, rocks found on site, and rope (the only thing I had to pay for, $5).
I made this video for my grandpa. For years he's been complaining about this rusty eyesore that the farmer missed into the creek and winters had washed down into our land. I'd been thinking lately about different ways of moving heavy objects, so I decided to give one of those methods a try. This is a simple capstan, like ships used for hundreds of years to raise their anchors. I had no idea what to expect, but it worked with surprising ease, with few problems.
The principle is quite simple. I have a handle that gives me really good leverage on turning an axle. For each rotation I travel a long distance while the rope gets pulled only a short distance, so the amount of work required to pull the rope gets distributed over a longer distance. It looks like I'm struggling at some points -- this is because I'm just tilting the branch to get clearance to make the rotation. (I should have sawed the loose end of the forked branch a tiny bit shorter. ) The amount of reduction is actually quite comfortable.
At one point the barrel got snagged on the cliff face, turning got difficult, and the whole capstan contraption started to slide despite all the rocks holding it down. I realized it quickly enough before things became unstable.
I took a break and finished after dinner before it got dark. All done in an afternoon.
Looks like a scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
did it take him like 3 years to get it up.
well done bro! nice
What type of tree does the forked branch come from?
can you show us how to make this? Awesome vid!
