Up she goes

March 11 2010 at 9:31 PM

Some people have concerns that I can't take my Big Yella up three flights of stairs as I have often said I do.

One bloke even said he'd like to see a video of me doing it. (?)

No video, but here's some pics of a job I went to today.

Ground floor, see how big my soft tires are compared to the height of the step.

Nearly at the top.

Waiting for my T.A. to open the door.

One more flight of timber stairs inside the unit, but it looks like I made it. wink.gif

I do many of these jobs each week, have to go back to one this arvo; for the 2nd floor unit.

I've seen the light, and changed my wicked ways. wink.gif


A gallon and cord too

Shorty, it looks like the Mex has a gallon of solution and the cord (could have taken up seperately) sitting outside #313. Now I know why you have such big strong man boobs. I doubt if there is a 64 yr. old man anywhere that could do that day in and day out. It looks like that is a residential building. Are you using DS? I used to say I looked up to you but your really "down under" I really look forward to your post, have a great day.

Now you need to go back and clean the tile/grout.The picture with the timber stairs shows a big difference from under the stairs to not under the stairs.You are walking over money to get to the carpet!

Richard Chavez posted this picture over on the ICS board in reply to Shorty's post there, and I couldn't agree more...

Does it help to be smaller than the handle on the Cimex when lifting it up the stairs?

You are our hero Shorty.


I'se embarrassed

I'se blushing, it really is easier than most people think to take the Cimex up & down stairs with the large wheels.

But a kit from Rick, you won't regret it.

NOW !!!!! On this height thing.

I do find it so much easier to transport up and down stairs when I'm not wearing high heels that tend to overbalance one, and lordy, if you snap a heel on the way down, look out below.
