    Lightbulb Table Saw Removalist

    So if you want to buy a larger table saw second hand, how do you get it from A to B? The larger cabinet saws are up to 200kg and most people don't want you in their workshop dismantling it to pieces.

    Assuming the current owner has reasonable access you might use a bunch of guys (or a few jacks) and a typical piano trolley to roll it to the truck with tail gate loader.

    However my driveway will be a bigger issue, backing the truck in and unloading the tail gate only gets you halfway up the driveway. The first few metres are steep before a gentle rise. It's only about 5m from tail gate to rollerdoor. So I was thinking a manual winch or ratchet strap is probably going to work fine. No piece of cake though!

    Any thoughts on how it's done inexpensively and recommendations for Sydney area for companies that can do it?

    Small tilt deck trucks are a viable option, plus there are trailers available (for hire in some areas) that lower the the deck to the ground. Try the larger Hire Companies.

    Boat winch and some pieces of water pipe as rollers for the sloped driveway, and just the pipes once inside the shed.

    My son gave me a Warn winch powered by your battery drill for Xmas a few years back.
    500 kg pull on level from memory.
    It wasnít up to pulling a 16Ē jointer (800kg) up al planks onto my ute so had to use my cumalong.
    Similar moving the disc and Bobbin (1000 kg) put some steel under each side, greased same and used the ute to drag 10m it on the conc.
    Lifted same with a chain block from a hardwood filled Ďuí section on the roof supported by acro props.
    200kg an engine crane and ute or trailer would be easy enough.

    Iíve moved two Wadkin Bursgreen AGS tablesaws by putting them upside down in vehicles.
    First was into a light ace van from Tamworth.
    The second was into my wifeís Mazda Metro from Goulburn.
    Roll em onto a milk crate and then into the vehicle.
    Tie with rope to towbar or rear seat anchor points with rats hit straps.
    Weighs about the same as two or three passengers.

    $74 p day from Kennards - TRAILER - TILT TRAY 2.4M X 1.5M 8FT X 5FT for Rent - Kennards Hire

    Be mindful, if using a winch / come along that you require a decent anchor point in your shed - stud walls & bottom plates DO NOT make for very good anchor points. How do I know - my Dad was a Reg Builder in Cairns up to mid 1980s - we had to repair a wall in a house in the hilly suburb of Edge Hill where the home owner tried to winch a car - engine up a steepish driveway. FAIL!

    Hi,
    I haven't been a regular on this site for many years, but I can give you a lead on some one who has been in machinery relocation business for a very long time. I just found a card for the the company Two Tonne Transport - Mobile 0419 025 546 or 02 9760 1800. I dealt with the father Michael Ghaleb, but I think he would be retired now , like me. But his son now operates the business. He is based at Granville.
    I gave their details to a guy in August year who wanted a machine moved and he did call me back to tell me they were still in business.

    You can give him a try to see if he can assist.

    If you know anyone with a four wheel drive with a winch, reverse it into the garage/workshop and run the cable down to the saw and put the saw on pipe rollers, slow and steady, and only one person in charge calling the shots. Otherwise a hand operated Tirfor winch, attached to someplace solid inside, like around a pier or post, or a couple of dynabolts into the concrete, will do it easily. If youíre not too far away, I can help you do this, PM me if you like.

    Fabricate a log arch for the back of your trailer. Pulls up with a winch and unloads by running the cable from the winch under the trailer to the arch head. Any type of winch will do, so long as it is rated for the load. I use mine for logs up to 4ton, cars, motor bikes quad bikes, shooting buggies, fridges, freezers, stoves, machinery, etc,etc. One man, one lift and you are good to go. Handiest thing I ever made.

    Thanks PEN, I did try them, but they're out of business now. They gave me the number of another similar guy, but in the end I didn't use him.

    Hired a ute, work has a tilt trailer, neighbour has a come-here and pallet jack, work has pallets. Cheap SCM SC4W panel saw up the driveway.. all 450kg of it.

    It was a bit scary reversing it up my twisting driveway at speed. I know when we first moved in the removalist van tail-light bumpers smashed into the pavers. Apparently the jockey wheel did an assist on the way up but I got it up in one go, so unloading was actually easy. The middle photo with my helper blacked out is for perspective. The front bush is I guess 7-9'.

    Thanks for your advice gents.
