We had to unload, bring in and set up in place an Amada punch press. It weighs 28,000 lbs. The manufacturer specified that it is to be unloaded with a crane only, with the angle between the slings no more than 60 degrees. So, no problem, we brought in a crane. Pulled it up, the trailer pulled out, set it down. Then we hooked it up to two forklifts with booms, the 30,000 lbs and the 18,000 lbs. Drove it up the ramps, turned the forklifts to pick it up sideways, and set it in the exact place that the customer wanted. We are Chicago Riggers and our job is to make the customer happy.
Here's a video of us removing their old punch press:
