Our office bought a 44 inch 8 cartridge plus 2 waste carrier printer, I think it was the 9880 model. I was able to set the unit up by myself until the printing unit had to be put onto the carriage, which I recruited a coworker to help lift the printing unit onto the wheeled carriage.
The overall unit, while in its original shipping box may need a number of people to move around, but the assembled unit is not that bad.
I got the Canon ProPixma 1, and the shipping box said it was 70 pounds. It is still not put together, as my home camera "office" is upstairs in the bonus room. Just can't take it up the stairs. Been maybe over 8 months sitting in a spare bedroom in the main level at home.
Also, I remember when we got out first home in mid-December in 1987, we wanted to get a Christmas tree, and being a "conscientious" family, we wanted to get a live tree. The guy, a burly person, said he had to get his associate to help lift the tree/rootball up our car trunk! I looked at my wife in shock. How the hell were we, 5'4" + 5', get the tree out of the car? And after the season was over, we wanted to put the tree outside in the ground, but the ground was frozen! Sat in the basement (walk out) until the weather warmed up. The tree was used to replace a dead one in the backyard lining the roadside and in less than 10 years, it grew to as high as the rest of the trees in the neighborhood.
