I loaded a huge chainsaw on my * and off of it.

I am not sure if there are words for such a thing. I am thinking of a set of bars that can be used to hold heavy objects with mobile bars like arms that are used to manipulate the heavy objects in order to drop or load these objects off and on the set of immobile bars.

  • Are you asking about something like this device that helps with moving around heavy things in a specific area? images.app.goo.gl/8mxeCfDCLmoYnArX9

It isn't a very specific term, but such a thing could be called a "rack". If you have such a thing, you might look at the instructions and see what the manufacturer calls it. If you cna find where one is for sale, online or offline, again see what term the seller uses.

  • Is there such a thing as a portable rack you can wear?

This equipment is called a forklift.

Wikipedia presents the equipment in this article.

  • I did not understand the OP to be describing a forklift. If that was the intent, then I badly misunderstood. I thought this was some sort of un-powered stand or rolling-rack. Commented Mar 20, 2019 at 20:36
  • It wasn't exactly what I was trying to describe.
