It's a silly question, and i'm sure everyone will say "lift with your legs, not with your back." but what is the EASIEST way to lift the ego snow blower ALONE. I know there is a rear bar to hold, but what about the front? For someone who will be lifting the blower on and off the truck that's a little higher than waist height, what do you guys recommend? What does ego recommend? I kind of wished they had placed a handle on the front similar to the lawn mower.

This will not answer your question but don't lift it, just roll it up two boards.

@Spark Lawns - I agree, a handle on top in the front in between the LED's would have been brilliant.  It's a total b*tch to lift it right now, and I have to transport it via my SUV to a family member's house.  Right now, I just take my glove off and grab it under the top of the intake chute and hold the middle bar as a handle.  It's precarious, but all we can do really (aside rolling it up two boards like Atom suggests).

I wonder if I'd void the warranty by bolting on my own grab handle at the top there..  Hmmm...
