    Default K&t5k

    Anyone have a ball park idea on the weight of one of these? About the only model I cant find much info on.

    Maybe 8k pounds?

    1941 4K Plain was about 12,500. Universal 13,200, so 5K will be more - but not as much as the later TF twin knee screw jobs that went on up to 17,500

    Dang, heavier than it looks in pictures.

    Around 15k pounds?

    You better be able to safely lift 16,000# if you wish to unload. I will vouch for the 4K horizontal over 13,000#, and the #5 is larger. Load center works against you as well.

    There is a 20k pound lift across the street. I am curious for shipping at this point.

    A 5CK Universal shows a weight of 15,600 lbs, you would need to add some for the swivel head and bracket. Should be in good shape with a 20k lift.

    Must be a lot bigger in person than they look in pictures, or they have 3" thick castings. Lol.

    Years back we purchased a 5K from a guy retiring from the business. I don't know how he got it in there in the first place, But we used a Caterpillar 966 loader with forks due to room restraints.it was all that loader could do to get it up and on our low bed.
    We did unload it with our 30,000 pound Caterpillar fork lift without any problems, although you could sure tell it was on there.

    Always look for the serial number and go here: Kearney & Trecker Co. - Publication Reprints - SERIAL NUMBER REFERENCE - Lot 1500 - 3835 | VintageMachinery.org

    Bear in mind that I scanned this lot book in four sections as it is so large....You can many times identify attachments for machines here as well.. Cheers; Ramsay 1

    I thought the machine in the photograph looked too small for what was supposed to be a size 5 machine.
