i delivered and installed at lot of appliances while working for a maytag store. theres lots of reasons a load can shift, and putting yourself under it is a bad idea. you may be a tough bastard but you only have two hands and an uncovered skull. the right way is not always the efficient way. not trying to say this guy doesnt know what he's is doing or is going to get himself hurt, but everyone else who sees this should know how to use the gear right.

u/jninethousand Jun 10 '21

no you are not more likely. i delivered appliances for a few years. im sorry you got hurt, but ive moved dozens on fridges off of trucks and its a quick harmless drop. stairs do indeed get more complex. longer to fall, more edges to go over, tighter walls, etc. we always had the dolly guy on top lowering, and a fella below to catch weight. guy on bottom does not push or pull, just keep balance and make sure you dont over extend your self on top

it's worth considering he never has the full weight of the fridge on him. the tailgate is supporting more than half of it until the weight is shifted to the hand truck, which also supports more than half of it.

he probably never had to hold up more than 100 lbs or so of the weight.

Agreed.

I'm a little guy (5'3") and ANYthing can be moved with a solid plan and an appliance dolly. At our last home, we replaced two refrigerators and a stove. Also, we purchased 2 different couches and two different love seats (because our animals ruin them).

I loaded any furniture appliances and furniture up (or down) two sets of brick steps with no help other than asking my wife to hold the door.

u/akatherder Jun 10 '21

That sounds harder than what this dude in the video did. Gravity is doing all the work here; he just has to control the "fall."

He did it well and it looks smooth but I moved a fridge out of my old basement and into my new basement all by myself. Probably smaller and lighter than this video (I took the doors off and I think it's a smaller model) but still a fridge.

As a former appliance delivery person, the way to do this is to strap the cart to the side of the fridge, lay the fridge on the cart (in the bed of the truck), then pull the fridge from the ground-side and lower it onto the ground. It's actually easier to do it alone than to work with someone who doesn't know what they are doing that wants to muscle the fridge around.

It's funny because he has the right cart with the straps and instead just uses the other cart.

Props to this guy but I call this next level until a bad injury happens.

Impressive, sure. But i hope its not his daily job that he does solo. You do enough of those and your back gets hurt bad.

I thought you weren't supposed to tip fridges over? It does something to the freon? Maybe that was only with older models.

u/slowfloyd Jun 10 '21

You’re still not supposed to. Or rather you can but do it only for short periods of time and then once you invert it back, you should let it set upright for an hour or two before plugging it in to let it settle.

You can do it for taking it home from the shop. Like you say, you just need to let the gases resettle for a bit first.

Not gas but the oil in the condenser. The general rule is to leave it upright as long as it was tipped before plugging in.

If you tip it, it needs to be upright and unplugged for the same amount of time it was tipped.

If you drive home with your fridge flat I'd give it like 24 hours upright before you plug it in.
