    too heavy to move? too heavy to be moved/

    Hi, which sentence is correct: This chair is too heavy to move.
    This chair is too heavy to be moved.

    What I mean is : This chair is too heavy, so I can't move it.

    Many thanks.

    Hi, I'm not a teacher nor a native speaker. I'm English learner like you.

    I'd say the second.
    If I have made any mistakes, please tell me about them. I need to improve my English anyway and I hope you'll help me.

    They are both possible.

    They are, but in most situations I would use too heavy to move.
