I want a powered unit too. Can you use it manually if the power malfunctions? That's nice that it's easy to transport. I bet you were really happy to have it when your husband got stuck. Not to mention how easy it was on him due to the fact he didn't have to be lifted out by several people. That's always a scary situation, hoping no one loses their grip on you.
