    Moving a Polar 78 on the second. It's in a building that can't fit a forklift. Does anyone here have any experience moving a mid sized Polar with a gantry crane? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Polar 78 has it own lifting point on the top of the machine under the screw on top cover
    It just rolls up and you can use a gantry with a block and tackle to lift internally if needs.
    It will lay backwards a little when lifted so you need to lift up at the back till you get a little height.
    When you drop it down lift the back up at the end of the rear table and the weight will counterbalance and level machine if you don’t lift it will fall backwards
    And you don’t want that happening
    Rear legs should be tightened and locked up after.
