A big concern is getting into some ruff stuff dropping the AT and not being able to pick it up.
Hi Fster, as suggested try to pick it up at home first, 250kg+ its almost impossible unless your name is Arnold.. I know i've tried out on the trail myself, being 59 and 85kg there was no way i was picking it up by myself, so I did some researsh, maybe your interested maybe you not? Check this out, I'll be getting one for my long solo trips. Dustriders Hoist.

Hope this helps.
