    Default Lift point for a gorton 375

    Hi all

    Has anyone here moved a gorton 375 single lip grinder? It's sitting on my trailer at the moment, but there's not really a handy point to lift from that I can see. If anyone has any suggestions, much appreciated.

    The one pictured is not mine - mine isn't on a pallet, and is top heavy enough that I'd really prefer to lift from above.

    Thanks

    Lee

    Yes, the grinder proper and the cast base were seperate castings. The grinder itself was picked up with a nylon sling around the spindle housing. Take the water pot off first, it simply lifts clear.

    The base casting as I recall had a opening in the top and we grabbed that with bridge clamps and wooden blocks with a nylon sling on each of the bridge clamps

    Thanks very much!

    I didn't realize the base was a separate casting... That will make it a whole lot more manageable

    Thanks!
