The Brute Squad

I’m a little anxious about a particular house-related task coming soon to a weekend near me…

This Saturday morning, my buddies Jake, Dave, and Chris are coming over to help me remove all the radiators from the house…

I’ve been borrowing a reciprocating saw (a genuine Milwaukee Sawzall, at that!) from my friend James, and just about all the radiators are cut free from their connections, ready to be hauled slowly and gingerly down stairs and out of the house.

Oh yeah, these beasts are cast iron, too. FREAKING HEAVY. I’m expecting even the smallest to way near 200 pounds. I’m planning to first purchase some moving straps or something similar to help get a hold of the awkwardly shaped/sized radiator, and then we’ll haul everything out of the house and off to a scrap yard.

It’s gonna be a long, hard Saturday morning, and I pray my back survives…
