    If you crib a trailer solid, off axles and springs.. then it is likely you can pinch or roller a fair size machine..perhaps 3000 lbs or so.

    Zips box idea seems good ..just stacking up would be tippisy...

    Once you get past one side of the cribbing square, it’s stable enough. Of course the closer the cribbing is to the center of the weight, the more stable it will be.

    When building your “pig pin”, just make sure it stays level and shim if needed. Also, the cribbing is only as strong as as what is under it, make sure it’s built on a solid footing.
    You've got it, that's exactly what I was asking. Thank you!

    That's a ridiculous deal, holy crap!

    Thanks for all the photos, that really helps.
