on sunday I went and got 2 sheets and had to put them on the trailer by myself. Luckily i'm 6'5 and can handle the height, but the weight was still pretty heavy. I ended up rolling it off the cart and layed it onto the trailer. Bent the corner a bit, but hey.

It isn't that heavy, but unless you carry it on your back or have a cart handy, it's far too cumbersome to carry around. Think of having a 8 foot long 60lb dumbell that you have to carry around.

i bought a 4x8 the other day... it wasnt too hard to pick it up.

i had the home depot guys chop it up to the basic dimensions (a little large on the more important cuts). Then i assemble the box, drill pilot holes and screw it together. After that i run around the edges with a straight flute router bit with a bearing on the end to create perfectly straight cuts :D

Yea the first few sheets arent bad, but I have to carry that **** around all day, MDF Oak 3/4" and 5/8", Particle Board 3/4 and 5/8. Sometimes it ***** ***.

I use to deliver the stuff to construction sites along with all other types of plywood and lumber......it's not the heaviest thing in the world but it's not feathers either.......having plenty of hauling space will make the trip a million times easier......having to "squeeze" it into a vehicle ***** major a$$

I hear that, I can move my ~100lbs sub box with effort, but a 4x8 sheet its hard as hell to hold @ 60lbs

I was gonna correct these guys, lmao, wish it was 60ibs!

It's more like 80+.

And like said b4

100 pound brick and 100 pound slab of 4x8 wood requires different effort to carry.

I'm only 5'11, but 210, built, and it's a fing strain on the hands.

But anyway, the sheets are hard to handle by yourself. Just get a friend.

It is, the real problem is its to ****ing big and no hand hold to pick it from. MDF is just a pita to move.

Well according to this, MDF weighs in at around 100 lbs.....

TRUPAN LIGHT---weighs approximately 80% of a standard mdf or about 80 lbs per sheet of 3/4" 4x8.

well that will explaine why the front of my van is maxed out within a inch of bottoming out lol 600lbs worth of box alone not counting the 10 interstate workaholics and amps...
but yall need practice on movein the mdf, put it on the cart at the store roll it to your car, open the back doors to your panel van lift the sheet up by your self in the middle (something balenced only weighs half as much) tilt it to the side slightly and push it on in, i do it almost everyday and have no problems and im 5'9" 135lbs i can do 2 sheets but thats just carrying and when i get to my destonation i drop them where i stand lol :nutskick:
