If you think it looks too heavy it probably is. Do it in two loads or grab someone to help.
- Stand in front of the object with your feet shoulder-width apart.
- Bend your knees and keep your back straight as you lower yourself.
- Grab the load so the weight is evenly distributed between your hands.
- Keep your back straight as you lift the load with your legs.
- Walk slowly to transport the object.
- Bend your knees to set the object down again.
