Re: More info would be nice

I moved my PM 3520 by myself. I got a GOOD set of wheels and installed them on a pallet. When I got to Woodcraft they loaded the lath and the shipping pallet onto my pallet.

With the help of the store guys I loaded the whole thing on my flat bed trailer and strapped it down. Secured with heave web straps.

When I got home there was no one around to help. After some thought I came up with an idea. I dropped the gate on the trailer hooked a block and tackle to the front of the trailer and the other end to lathe. Then I let out the rope and pushed at the same time. The lathe came off the trailer with no problem.

Then I just jacked up one end at a time and took the wheels off. Presto, I was in business.
