A long rope handle is used to drag the sled without toppling the sprayer or the bucket.
I made a sled for my airless sprayer that makes it easier to move the sprayer and the 5-gal. paint bucket that holds the paint. I screwed a bucket holder (made from an old 5-gal. paint bucket) to 3/4-in. plywood. A keyhole cutout on the bucket holder makes it easier to pull out the paint bucket. 2-in. by 2-in. cleats keep the sprayer’s base on the plywood, and a long rope handle allows me to drag the sled without toppling the sprayer or the bucket.
