Moving a Large BGE

Looking for any advice on this.  The few times I have had to move my egg I always end up at the chiropractor for the next couple weeks.  I have it in the nest with 4 wheels on a deck only 2 steps off the ground.  Is the new nest handler they have come out with worth buying (and anyone know how much)?  Any good idea of something cheap to make at home that will make this easy? Thanks

    Loosen the top bolt on the band, lift the dome out of the band, take the fire ring and fire box out of the base, and then the base of the egg can be lifted out of the nest easily. The base by itself is less than 50 pounds.

    You don't need to buy anything. The egg band takes a 7/16ths or 1/2" deep socket to loosen the band depending on which egg you have. After that you just take the internals out and the base is light. I have taken a couple eggs apart before and there's no need to waste money on contraptions.
