I have one of those and yes I use it for lotsa tasks. I also just acquired a bunch of pallet racking for storing stuff (in an effort to reduce my "trails around stuff/have to climb over stuff to get around in the shop" habits)
I have NO idea how I ever got along without it. Load stuff into/out of pickup, stack stuff, move stuff, pick up the garden tractor to service the blades, put new compressor pump onto the tank, etc.
Mine has a 5,000# capacity, and I paid $300.00 for it from a liquidation sale when a warehouse was closing
