    Kubota crates! You lazy SOBs! Climb on your trailer and put the strap on the parts inside the crate. Don't just stand on the ground and toss straps over the crate.


    Don't forget padding to keep the paint nice...





    ... and you are welcome!

    There are 2 reasons a larger than expected crane is often used.
    (1) The crane hire company only has a larger crane available and rather than let the client go to a rival company supply a larger crane than ordered at smaller crane rate.
    (2) The unit off loaded has to be placed somewhere on site that needs the lifting capacity of a larger crane at reach than a crane simply for off loading could handle.

    I suspect the former here because the crane is set up for minimum lifting.
    It has minimum counter weights and reeves of cable on the hook.
    This is the way they set larger cranes up when hired out as lower capacity units.
    If it was for reach they would have had more counter weight.

    Finally I have a load worthy of posting on here! A hammermill rotor from a scrapyard being sent out to get rebuilt, weighed 48,000. First one of these I've done, so I didn't know what I was doing. Set it on coil racks, and it didn't move, but standard coil racks would have worked better for this I think, since all the weight is sitting in just 4 small spots. It sunk into the blocks pretty bad, I'm glad it was only going 400 miles. A learning experience, but it got there at least.
