    That looks like an excellent way to transport machinery!

    If I ever had to move my shop again that would be part of the vision :)

    Are you sure its not a C-500 or a C500-50? I think that's a lot more common model number in Clarks.

    At upper left is a C500-30 and I previously owned a C500-40.

    Do you have a picture of the...

    One issue with a traditional curtainside 53' trailer is that the back end has a triangulated brace structure to resist the force of tensioning the curtain (its almost like a load binder deal at the...

    I think that directionally, any psi will work.

    the machining center coolant-thru setups use hundreds of psi to blast the chips out of there via fluid flow and pressure, as the overall goal is...

    Starting with the truck pictured, one could also build the box with a slot in the roof and removable roof panel(s). It sounds like a pain to get them all sealed up so it doesn't leak like mad going...

    Coffing LSB series is the gold standard imo in lever hoists.

    Your bicep will be as big as your thigh if you ever have to pull something out of there via lever chain hoist. Its not the actual...

    I wouldn't worry about it, mock it up with clamps, transfer the hole pattern over and drill (and maybe tap...)

    I don't know if you have a target lower-sheave centerline to go with on your lathe,...

    These people might be able to help, I think my Dad sourced various New Departure bearings from them in the past.

    I'm not sure a change from cushion tires to pneumatics can be done as a bolt-on fix.

    All I have seen is that the tires get significantly larger in diameter when the pneumatics are hooked up, the...

    I think a person would do very well to have the monorail in 2 sections with an external outboard support that's site-assembled.

    So part of the monorail exists permanently inside the trailer. 2...

    Looks like its a D=diesel, C = Clark, Y = Yardloader (aka rough terrain forklift).

    Your steering would eventually have to connect to the orbital motor on the steering shaft somewhere (could be...

    Not that you really want to do this but a 24" part (2' dia) has pi*d = 6.28 feet of surface-feet for every rev.

    Crank that bad boy up to 400 rpms and if you are brave enough to stand there its...

    I moved all of mine loaded. It takes a smaller fork cross-section to get underneath it, the big 2" thick hogs won't go under freely.

    I just spaced the forks as wide as I possibly could mainly to...

    I would hit it all over with LPS2. LPS-3 is also good (better actually long-term) but will build to a waxy film unless you keep wiping it around.

    My take is from working in a vehicle assembly plant for 10 years, so a ~million windshields went by. I didn't put them in but worked regularly on the dispense equipment & robot cell.

    Some info...

    Do you actually drive with the machine still on skates or do you use a pallet jack, floor jack, porta-power, etc to get it back on solid cribbing?

    I would be very leery to transport any machine...

    Id recommend a 14k (4 tire) deckover gooseneck, store it outside in a ministorage or a boat yard, and put a coat of Floods CWF-UV on the deck every other year and a coat of FluidFilm on the steel in...

    Clark Clipper would be ideal but old and not sure what kind of support is out there, they all seem to have a single tall cylinder without any free-lift in the mast. The Clark C500-30 (see orange...

    Your bigger challenge might be getting it off the trailer...

    8k is outside the range of a pallet jack (~5k). Ramps and rollers always disappoint from what I find, the rollers find a hollow spot...

    This is 100% better with no loading dock. Loading a machine out of the parking lot is a choice I'd make 100x over having to load it off a loading dock.

    First glaring reason is the semi trailer...

    Can the rental place Enterprise, etc tell you what the payload capacity is?

    A classic 1 ton 350/3500 dually rear axle is good for about 5k payload. The 450 is another step past but I can't quote...

    This is a 10EE Monarch, smaller obviously but principle applies. I thru-bolted this (1/2-13 HHCS) to some 4x6 timbers, which are ~1" smaller than the ID width of the trailer, there's some screwed...

    I didn't see it listed but the speed is what kills tires, etc. If you self-impose to 65mph you're going to do fine. Your tow vehicle has got plenty of pull and it will not be the limiting factor.
