    Does anyone have one of these, seems like a great idea to move sheets of ply around the shop.

    No. And I don’t need one nor could I use one in my shop configuration.

    Big deal moving ply’s around. MDF is where I’d want an assist. Those panels are darn heavy. Fortunately, I rarely deal with such.

    I just lift the dang things. No special tools involved.

    The ability to tilt to the level of the TS is a great feature. I probably wouldn’t use something like that; i just don’t deal with sheet goods very often.

    I don’t need one of those, I don’t have a shop, just working out of my garage, and for the odd time I moved sheet material around,

    Might be good for someone with back problems or have a big enough shop, and move heavy sheet around all day.

    since I got my track saw, I just use it if it would be more difficult to get a panel up on the table saw.

    Those are the only reason I see someone having a use for this.

    I could never move a sheet around in my shop on that thing, just not enough room.

    nice little gadget but I have no need for it.
    I drive with my truck right into the shop/garage and use sheet as needed.
    from the truck right into table saw or on top of a mobile table/bench.

    Same here but if I had to move a bunch of them every day something like that would be useful.

    Seems like a gimmicky product that you would use a couple times when you first get it then end up in the corner of your shop collecting dust.

    I really only see that useful if you often have to haul sheet goods a lot long distances and you have a decent surface to run on.

    I was thinking if it could do multiple sheets at a time, i can take them flat off the bed of the pick up truck to the carrier and the carrier moves it vertical and i can place em in storage till i need them.

    the bed also works perfectly as a outfeed table for the table saw when running sheets thru it; even 2x4s or so 😀
    the panel carrier would definitely collect dust in my shop.
    I like the speed skate from fast cap. I gonna look into that one
