Drywalling: which way to go: 2 people or 1 person and a drywall lifter?


I hope you get a lot of use from your drywall lift.

Did you every check to see if the drywall schools have them, and sell them used?

Maybe I will buy yours after you are done?

I think even used ones are selling expensive... I didn't check around physically, just over the net... couldn't find used one... the new one I bought got close to 100% feedback from a lot of people and this company selling them at a very low price... I am more than welling to sell to you at half price when I done with it.... anyhow... for someone like me, not that strong physically... a lift I think is important.... unlike those Italian guy who can lift a drywall with one hand.... ...

You will just love that machine. A couple of years back I had to drywall a 24 x 14 bedroom with 9 foot ceilings and on the day we were ready to go my partner got a serious flu and I had do do this myself included was using 5/8' on the ceiling. Well I made out real good by making step blocks to put the drywall on so I didn't have to lift the whole sheet up onto the lift. I had some milk crates and just stacked them so I could lift one side of the sheet at a time and so on. It would be in your favor to pick up a DRYWALL TEE SQUARE. These squares are invaluable and speed up the work 10 fold.

After search the "drywall tee sqaure" over the net, I found out you meant those measuring tool and help cutting tool, I guess, I got it at the very beginning stage as I know they are required in many instances.... No sweat, I thought I need to spend another $$ for something else I must have....
