I'm replacing a single built-in oven weighing approximately 275lbs, with a double built-in weighing approx. 450lbs - the new one is currently in my garage on a pallet (w/non-std fork holes in the pallet).

I don't want to hurt my back or anyone else's and cannot damage either oven. Any ideas for handling would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

** Any ideas for handling would be greatly appreciated. **

Well, if you were in the business, there are special dollies which could possibly help but they are very expensive and not likely worth buying for a one-time use.

Maybe build a platform to hold it until it can be pushed into place? The up and down would likely still have to be manual.

Can you direct me to where I could see these dollys, price, etc.? I am curious to see how much they do cost, contractors are hard to come by right now.

Thanks for your help.

Local rental houses might have them.

Thanks for your good suggestions. I have an installer coming in the morning to place in the cabinet - already prepped for the size & he should be cheaper than buying a lift.

Do you know, the j-box is flush w/the wall all right, but the j-box is about 1 ft. from the top of the unit. Preferred installation by manuf. is lower right hand corner, w/option to be above or in an adjacent cabinet. I can go up, but can't go down unless I splice in more wire - surely not to code. Should I move this j-box?
