Default Hardie Lap siding cart

work alone, this summer I'm residing a house. One challenge is moving the thin and brittle siding planks from the stack delivered by forklift to the side of the house I'm currently working on. I can only carry 2 of the 12' long planks at a time. They are concrete so they are heavy and are about 5/16" thick and don't support their own weight with a single lift point in the middle. So carrying one requires grabbing it in two places at least 3' apart and walk gently as each end flaps like an airplane wing in turbulence.
Challenge solved... using some scrap plywood, an old 20' rope, scrap pvc, old casters in the front and a wheel/axle set from a cooler I found in the ditch. This works great!

Necessity, being the mother of invention has shown up again. Good idea.

Good idea Everend. When you`re done siding how about posting any other tips you have about installing those planks plus any issues you had. I may decide to re-side my house one day and if I do that Hardiboard would be my first choice.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Have the siding delivered. A fork lift is a wonderful tool.
Bring shade.
Use Gecko Gauges.
