Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 2, 2008
Galloway Interests, LLC is pleased to announce its BigSlider™ utility mover has been chosen by Popular Mechanics magazine as one of the Top 13 New Tools for 2008.
BigSlider proudly received the Editor's Choice Award from Popular Mechanics in recognition of outstanding achievement in new product design and innovation at this year's National Hardware Show. "If the Bigslider had been around 5,000 years ago, the wheel might have never been invented," quipped Jim Meigs, Editor-in-Chief as he introduced BigSlider at the awards ceremony.
BigSlider has also received accolades from Garden Center Products & Supplies (GCP&S) as one of their Editor's Choice items. And Matt Weber, Editor-in-Chief of Extreme How-To, says it's "better than a wheelbarrow." Most importantly, customers give BigSlider the "I wish I'd thought of that" award or the "It's a lifesaver" award!
What's all the buzz about? A simple 3 lb tool empowers one person to move just about anything, including up to 500 lbs on concrete. It's 2 ft by 5 ft of tough plastic with a big comfortable handle on one end and rope holes at the other. Women working alone use it to move heavy potted plants or chests of drawers, and men use it to move a chain barrel or car engines and transmissions alone.
Finally, BigSlider is a great garden cleanup tool. Whether cleaning up from a hurricane loads too big for the wheelbarrow or scooping and bagging fall leaves, BigSlider is lightweight and versatile. It even makes fall leaf cleanup a snap. It reinforces and holds the lawn and leaf bag open, then gets your bags to the curb without ripping.

Indoors or out, BigSlider moves easily over concrete, grass, brick, mud, rocky surfaces, and snow (for firewood), as well as carpet, tile and wood floors. If you can tilt your load 1/16 of an inch, you can probably move it - without waiting for help.
