Too funny....

Unrestored or restored? For retored I take lots of blankets and duct tape. You can build a wood cradle for it to lay in as well. I have also used a dolly from U-haul (don't remember her name.....) Wrap it is blankets and then hook on to it. A guy had build apump hauler out of an old shopping card. You would hook onto it and then when you tipped it back it dat at a 45 degree angle on four wheels. Need to upgrade toa heavier wheel. I could unload and move a pump by myself easily. Good luck

If it is a pump with removable doors, remove the panels and computer face on one side. Bolt short 2x4's across the framerails in two or three places. If necessary build these out past the side panels and screw two long 2x4' to these cross pieces. [these should extend above the top of the pump] You can then tilt the pump into the back of a pickup and slide it in. Once you have it at its location, pull the pump out until the base tilts to the ground and then stand the pump up. [yes you need help] Remove the 2 x4's and re-assemble the pump.
I have transported four or five pumps this way without a scratch.

I only have experience with one, when I picked it up the guy who restored it took a new bedsheet & wrapped it around the whole thing, few pcs of tape at the end to keep it from falling off while he wrapped 1"? bubble wrap around and around top to bottom till it was all covered well, then shrink wrap tight around it the same way.
We laid it in the back of the pickup with stuff to keep it from sliding around and I hauled it a couple hours with no problems. I then did the same thing when I moved it from my office to my new house. You need a pal and a couple beers if you are so inclined. Easy to carry, nice and grippy, right to it's new spot then unwrap. You want to keep it flat loading and unloading instead of leaning on the tailgate unless you incorperate boards/plywood like Rod said.
This was a light gutted restored Tok 39.

Welcome aboard Mike.
I love that Redmond country. When I got out of the Marine Corps I tried for the Post Office up there and Bend but Medford had a position open. Good luck on transporting your pump. My pump came to me laying in the back of a truck. It was not restored so scratches did not matter. If you happen down this way send an e-mail.

Love the Photo Poor Man. When there is a will there is a way.
Mike
