Going to be bringing in a 20x120 Monarch lathe and a smaller Prentice lathe. Am I on the right track for getting a truck and crane staged to unload the equipment?

Just tell the crane guy what you need, he’ll position himself accordingly to do the job. At least if he’s any good.

Think about how you are going to move them in the shop. Do you have machine dollies, or access to them? A crane will the quickest to unload from the truck, but probably will not be able to set it entirely inside, unless he can hook it short enough and extend the boom straight in.

Since you are getting 2 machines at once, maybe plan on getting small one in first, especially if your forklift can move that one, then set the big one in as far as you can.

1. Don’t be in a hurry moving the machines.
2. Be efficient. Clean as much space as possible inside so you have a big area to work in.
3. Have lots of cribbing available, especially if you want it done quickly to save crane time bill.

4. Know the billing time. The cranes I used work with had a 3 hour minimum charge. Part of this is transportation and setup time. But if you are paying for three hours total, don’t be in a hurry to have the crane only be there for 45 minutes actual unloading time.

5. The crane operator might have said machine moving dollies that can make the job go easy. But I’m sure they will charge for them. But time is money, and if you have other help there, it may pay off. Otherwise, you can move a lot by yourself, it just takes a lot more time.

Toughest thing you got going against you is lack of nice cement floor in front of the garage door for ease of rolling the lathes in from setting down with the crane.

I've only talked to one crane company. $180 a hour and 4 hour minimum. Guy said to plan on $1500-$2000 depending on how things went. I'd have to supply my own machine skates. Got two options to get skates. His idea is to set the head stock in through the door untill the rigging is touching the building, set it diwn and lift the tail end while I pull the lathe in with my forklift.

In addition to 4x4 and 4x6 cringing I also have two eight foot long I beams and one stick of two inch by quarter inch wall steel tubing that could be used also.

I do plan to pour a 25x40 apron in front of the shop but I have a fair amount of dirt work to do for that.


Help would be nice but I've learned to just count on myself.

I hope this will happen sometime in December or January at the latest.

Another option is a rolloff/tilt and load deck truck. Done right, they could winch it on, drive to your place, back in and slide them off where you need them, or at least a lot closer.

The lathes are coming out of Brunswick GA, then makimg a pit stop at a friend's place to give me a chance to get a crane scheduled and time off from work. I'd like to move them at the same time from my friends place to here. His place is about 45 min away. Trucking is costing me $350 total. Im doubtful a roll back could move both lathes at one time. I like the idea though. I do indeed have some help on the transport side.
