I have no problem of loading/unloading a van at a mate’s yard - he has a teleporter.
Is there a local farmer who could help? Then it would just be the lesser problem of getting it on a pallet?
800kg.Is it a concrete floor?
Can you borrow/hire some machine skates?
Can you hire/borrow/make some smooth ramps?
600kg isn't heavy for a lathe!
When you say "nowhere strong enough in the sprinter to hold 600kg" - that's fine, you're not lifting it vertically up... only holding it from running backwards at worst, and winching it up slowly at best. With the right ramp set, you'd be fine with a strap around a seat base, or even a U bolt through the bulkhead IMO.
Or borrow a plant trailer and winch off that. Even easier.
You absolute muppet! Or maybe I'm the one?Camberley Surrey.
Sadly it wasn't ready and not sure if he is open Saturdays.You absolute muppet! Or maybe I'm the one?
I mentioned I was passing you on Saturday to go and collect the cherry picker. Between Bob and I I'm sure that we could have got it onto the 18ft triple axle trailer I had with me. Camberley would have been a very small diversion.
Looking at the photos loads of space. Could have easily shoved the picker back (up to probably about 9ft) to accommodate it at the front. Fairly sure it would have fitted on as it was but the trailer was a fraction nose heavy as it was, towed absolutely fine.Would there have been room with that monster you brought back
