I like your answer, not BQ340s. We have a 12,000 fork truck to unload.
I already own this lathe. My guess is we can get this broke one for
$1. But looks like $1500 to deliver. My son and I discussed it and
decided not to use my 24,000 lb. rated trailer. The truck weighs 8,
the trailer 5, the lathe 12 = 25,000. The wheels would take it and I'd
do it for a short haul. But this is a six plus hour run IF you went
60. More likely I'd do 35 on the way back. And be FUBAR if something
Remember to take into account the CG rating of the forklift. I believe
most are rated for CG 24" out on the forks and most big machines will
have the CG well past that even if they meet the total weight rating.
This is of course a tipping hazard unless you can hang more
counterweight on the back of the forklift.
Another trick that helps if its right on the edge is to JUST use the lift
for lifting. Pull the trailer out from underneath, and lower the load after
the trailer is out of the way. Still if its not where you want it you have
to go from there. I've loaded and unloaded scissor lifts with dead
batteries that way.

What truck do you have? If a 3/4 pickup, with trans cooler, you can probably

In the arithmetic below, by "truck" do you mean a 12000-pound-capacity
fork lift, which you are going to take along on the trip for loading and
unloading? If that's the case, it might be better to rent a fork lift
at the other end, probably under $100 for a half-day rental. Renting
would get rid of the trailer capacity problem. Gas cost savings might
be noticeable too.
"M4" and "M4 weight" come up empty in the search, so you might call
and ask them, Karl.
