It's always good to get feedback, and suggestions for improvement. As comments come in I'll post them here.


Andrew from Monmouth. (2017) Hi Rob, Just to say thanks for your prompt service. Your plate lifter is really well made and does the job excellently. Just what I need and I wish I had come across your website a long time ago.
Steve from Suffolk.
I purchased your lifter several years ago (Nov 2013) when I had broken a couple of ribs. I use it daily for work it's brilliant.
Andrew from Suffolk. (June 2016)
Dear Rob, Have just carried out service on my Aga and used your Hot Plate Lifter. It worked brilliantly and was very simple to use. My back and I are very grateful!
John from Isle of Man. (March 2016)
Hello Rob, Many thanks or the Aga Barrel Lifter parcel, which arrived this morning.
It is clearly a very well made high quality product, and I send you my congratulations on that.
Stuart from Dorset. Dec 2015. Hello Rob. I used the AGA barrel lift yesterday and the stove is now serviced and back in use.
Your AGA barrel lift MK 3 was a delight to use. The quality and design of the various components being first class. The kit was easy to assemble and clearly marked for the assembly and use.
I would like to complement you on producing such a well designed item - and of a very reasonable cost.
Simon from Chelmsford. (Aug 2015)
Hi Rob. Just put the Aga back together and so impressed with your device!!!
Simple to assemble and operate. No more taking several minutes to pluck up courage to lift the beast and just hoping that the back would hold out and same again putting it back. Wish you much success with this very ingenious and well manufactured piece of equipment
Matthew from Suffolk.
Dear Rob. The lifter arrived, I have tried it and it's excellent.

Henk from Surrey.
Dear Rob, Lifter arrived Saturday. I used it today. Excellent piece of kit. Saved my back!
Katherine from Kent
. Kit arrived today as promised. Already assembled and works very well. I can’t thank you enough for developing this. We always had a professional service our AGA but only because we couldn’t manage the lift. There will be no stopping us from here on in!

Adam from
A B Engineering Thank you so much it's a brilliant well made tool (May 2015)
Andy from North Yorkshire.
I had a call out to a sooted Aga from one of my customers this morning. Gave me a chance to use the lifter, and all worked just as it should do.
Great idea, and well put together. Just need to make a shelf in the back of the van for it to sit, then it's all sorted.
Brendan in Republic of Ireland (Dec 2014)
Hi Rob. Received the kit and I am very impressed with design and construction. Thanks
Anne from Republic of Ireland (Dec 2014)
Hi Rob. My Aga Lifter arrived yesterday evening. My husband was here and he was like a child getting an early Christmas present.
He opened it all up and all I could hear was, (well fair play to him he knows what he is doing) he actually thinks it is the best thing since sliced bread.
Many thanks again, it was a pleasure to do business with you.

Ryder from Warwickshire (Dec 2014)
Hello Rob
The kit arrived this afternoon, and was put to use immediately. It is everything you said it would be - simple, sturdy, easy to assemble and use, plus it is very nicely finished and looks a long way from 'home-made.
Having struggled for forty years to extract the wretched pot using exactly the same method but my own Heath Robinson equipment, I am delighted to tell you that your lifter has transformed the servicing of the Aga and made it (almost) a pleasure!
Thank you also for your prompt and courteous service. My wife adds heartfelt thanks; now that the kitchen is warm she has moved back in, and I'm looking forward to decent meals again
Roslyn from North Yorkshire (Sept 2014)
Thank you for sending the hoist so promptly. It is beautifully constructed and it made our Aga servicing a thousand times easier! We wish we had spotted your product years ago! Many thanks.
Norman from Belfast (March 2014)
Hi Rob, I just serviced the AGA yesterday. What a difference – superb product ! Well engineered and fit for purpose. It made the whole servicing job much easier and less stressful. Thanks again and Well Done !
Brian from Devon (Jan 2014)
Many thanks for the lifter - the best tool I've found in 30 years of servicing our Aga! Makes the whole job so much easier and safer. Well done - I hop you have a patent on it! Best wishes. Brian

Darren in Essex (Dec 2013)
The design, construction and finish are all first class and it's a doddle to use - why I left so long before I got one I'll never know. Thanks also for the fast service - much appreciated.
Martin in Newcastle upon Tyne (Nov 2013)
I can report that I am delighted with it and it worked like a dream. It was also a breeze to set up. Why every Aga service engineer doesn’t have one of these, goodness knows. Overall a first class product, Rob, so many thanks indeed.
From Brian in Scotland;
Any way, congratulations on a splendidly engineered piece of machinery. The finish is great too!
I may not need to use it until the end of Summer but I no longer have the dread of lifting that core. (See also below)
From Felix in Republic Ireland;
The lifter arrived at lunchtime today. Many thanks for your courteous and expeditious handling of the order.
Delivery is just in time for my ageing 'Aga man' to work his magic.
Brian in Scotland; (Oct 2013)
This message is a tribute to your engineering skills and the design of the lifting device. The machine is expertly engineered and so simple in use. It enabled me to effortlessly lift the Aga barrel and to complete the annual maintenance in under an hour with complete ease.
Steve in Monmouthshire; (Sept 2013)
"Received the Aga barrel lifter and have used it for the first time today. Removing (and replacing) the barrel was effortless.
I suffer from a damaged back and cannot lift heavy weights, but I had no problems with removing the barrel.
Even my wife, who wanted 'a go' found it easy. Thank you for a well made and extremely effective tool. Well worth the money!"
Richard in Suffolk;
Lifter arrived Friday, I've only just unpacked it and had a go at assembling, seems pretty straightforward and will be a great help nowadays.
Mark, also in Suffolk;
Many thanks, the lifter arrived yesterday and I had a play with it last night. It looks great and I can see will work well.
Peter in Hampshire;
Many thanks Rob. It arrived safely and works a treat. I lifted it myself first and then let my wife (8 stone) do it with ease. Kind regards Peter.
Will in Hertfordshire;
Have now set it up and had a go - brilliant bit of kit!
Richard in Sussex (www.sussexoilboilerservices.co.uk)
Hi Rob. Many thanks for the barrel lifter which I received today. It works brilliantly and is so well made!

John in Gloucestershire; (Oct 2013)
I received the Mk3 crane yesterday and tried it out today. It is very well made and the best thing since sliced bread for getting the AGA barrel out for servicing! Many thanks for the prompt service. Well worth the money.
