Delta/rockwell/powermatic lathes

>I am sure some of you must use one of the older Delta/Rockwell lathes. I am giving serious consideration to one of these. I thought I found a Powermatic unit but it was a better deal than I realized and is gone. I have a lead on another but seeing as how I have never used one, I would like some input on them.

With an Outboard turning spindle this appears it would do most anything I would want capacity wise. My main interest is in bowls and hollow work. I get conflicting weights on them. One big question is can 2 people load it on a low trailer or is this a 4 man job?
