Thanks Brian.  The handles make is so easy to transport.  I wish i could get 15 gallon buckets like these 5's.  It took me 5 minutes to get  the 12 gallon  fukushu kumquat/FD up 8 ladder feet.

After an unpleasant struggle using long 2x4s as levers to precariously raise the heating unit up to my greenhouse roof for installation, I bought a block&tackle/pulley.  I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I am looking forward to needing it for something. 

the only reasonably priced large containers I have found (>20gal) are the fiberglass(?) ones that Costco sells for ~$30-40 in spring.
