I have physical issues. Trying to lift boxes up to trunk height.
I need something that can lift a medium-large cardboard box weighing between 40 to 65 pounds from ground to waist level. It needs to be portable or as much as feasible. So a light weight device is really helpful (think 20 pounds or less).
Bonus if it can lift it up to chest or even shoulder height.
It doesn't have to move the box around. It just has to make the box go vertically upwards.

The best I've found is a high lift jack but I don't know if that would work for a box. I imagine the problem would be fitting it on to the narrow base.

Would do what you want, though more than 20 lbs. Cherry picker or engine hoist lift. Sometimes called a shop crane.

A couple of examples.

Or something like these dirt bike scissor lifts if starting a few inches off the floor is good enough and 38 inches high is high enough.

A home made tripod with a come-along or similar pulley arrangement might be good enough.

something like this.

Hiten this is wonderful as it lifts up to shoulder height and rolls! I badly need to find out how to buy it or the name of this type of device. Can you or anybody help me? I live in the US and I'll do what it takes!

I've no idea what the top word means, but the next two clearly describe the thing as a "mini stacker" (transliterated from English). Not very helpful.

Thank you, but unfortunately they are heavier than the boxes I would need to lift. But it's good to know there are options.

I searched and I think it is Korean company called CasterNet. You can contact by email and see if they have distributor to USA.

Do deal with some prudence.

Or you can DIY at local fabricator (make it sturdy and light weight) as shipping and cost will probably be same.

Best Regards
