Hi there does anyone know the weight of a elliott 14m shaper. I have purchased it but don't have a manual was thinking a 2 ton engine hoist and lift into a big van or onto a trailer

Many thanks for people's input

Sean I dont have one but having lifted machines onto trailers I am not sure an engine hoist would get it high enough. Last time I lifted a surface grinder onto a trailer I needed a jcb to get the height. So just check how high you can go.

I re-furbished an Alba 14M - same as yours - Arrived at home with it on the back of a Landcruiser LDV - thought I would take it down with my engine hoist...Way to high - the hoist is very unhappy lifting the shaper while on the ground with the hoist arm extended to max, and max would not reach the shaper top while on the LDV...rented a small forklift and driver.

Found one figure of 800kg. You may need to strip bits off to get the weight down so that you can use an engine crane at its max extension (so that you can get the max lifting height). Lathes.co.uk can probably provide a manual that should give you weights, dimensions and the lifting points.
