You're not wrong Phil. It was a nervous moment when the telehandler lifted it on the plate I'd made.It is one of those jobs that no matter how good your gear is, or how well organised you are, or how many times you have done it, you still breath a huge sigh of relief when it is finally on the deck and in position!!
We had backup straps incase something went and a ratchet strap under the headstock end to keep it lore level. I think the position of the plate suits a non gap bed machine. Mines got a gap so could only go so near the chuck.
I was more worried about it bouncing a lot on the tractor trailer tbh, but it was rock solid. I even had it up to 40kph at one point..
