    Very impressive Rusty.

    I had to lay some 3x2’s back down the other week on my own. Used the now patented edge pivot, lower and drag into place technique! :D

    The biggest slabs were ~1100x700 and 60-70mm thick Must have weighed knocking on 100kg each. Most were a fair bit smaller thankfully.
