Just bought this to save my back when a client spec’d a project that required 20 sheets of 3/4” MDF. The Troll is an awesome back saver that makes it very easy to move sheet goods around the shop. My storage is roughly 75 feet away from my tablesaw so I needed a simple and inexpensive way to move the 20 sheets around with a minimum of lifting.
Basically, to use, you lay the Troll against the sheet at about midpoint. Then you lift/tilt the panel until the lip on the bottom of the Troll slips under the sheet (about 5 inches). Once the Troll slips under you set the sheet down on to the Troll. The weight of the sheet is what secures the Troll to the sheet. Once all of the weight is on the Troll you can easily steer the sheet around the shop. The wheels are a nice soft rubber and are big enough that they easily roll over small obstacles. Because the pivot point is in the center of the sheet, maneuverability is pretty good.
Overall I am very happy with my purchase…and my back is even more happy!
