I have this panel carrier. I also have an orange plastic Stanley panel carrier that cost about 6 bucks. The Gator carrier hasn't seen the light of day in several years. I just find the bottom-style carrier better for maneuverability and reduced fatigue when carrying a bunch of sheets.

I've had the orange ones for a least a decade. Don't use them often, but they do work. You'd need to be about 10 feet tall (I'm only 6'2") to use the Gator ones without throwing a permanent cramp in your shoulder trying to lift your arm high enough to keep a panel off the floor.

You might be right in that the bottom lift is more maneuverable during the task at hand, but you're probably deferring the immediate ease toward long term back/joint pain.

The gator lift is better for posture, but I'd recommend getting a drywall lift with some tall wheels if you're hanging it frequently.

Yes, the bottom carry is much easier to deal with.

Yep... I have this as well, like others are saying- get the bottom carriers.

I have one on these. Works well when you have to solo carry drywall or plywood sheets.

But like others mention it had its limitations.
1. You need to be reasonable strong and able to carry the weight with your arm bent at shoulder level
2. You need to be tall enough to make this work
3. It doesn't really work when trying to carry up/down stairs or steep inclines.

I have both as well, and they both work well in different ways. I had to move about 20 3/4 4x8 subfloor panels solo about 6 months back. Neither was perfect but I used the gator for all but 2 of them due to not having to crouch to get them up. In 5'6" and don't find the gator difficult to use, you just have to learn where to consistently position it so that your drywall is parallel to the ground, and keep the handle on bottom part of your palm so you don't pinch your wrist. This was a great deal at $25 the last few times, so for $15 to me it's a no brainer

I have this and used it for OSB which wasn't too bad. I'd wear boots next time as the sheets hang at a slight angle toward you. Got a few scrapes around the ankles. Double sheets of drywall are usually heavier and I agree with others here. Least amount of arm fatigue with it hoisted at the shoulder. Going down stairs was difficult without banging up the corners as you're less than a foot off the ground depending on how tall you are.
