Tak 230 question

Getting bricks delivered on a B-train, heaviest pallet will be 2900 pounds, will the tak handle those from atop the trailer,stacked two high?
I just need to get them off the truck and I know it will handle them low down.

are you saying the load would be 5800lb coming off the trailer? then no- tipping load is ~4600 with rated operating capacity of ~1600...maybe if you only have to handle 2900lb at a time...but that will be pushing it, at least on paper...haven't ever tried tho.

2900 is no problem. I have video of 4200 pounds from a few years back.

I would be pleasantly surprised if you could lift the top pallet. Especially since it will probably 7' off the ground.

That is the question, Getting a b train delivery is much cheaper than a crane truck, need two loads so over 700 in savings if it will lift it...

those machines will handle a 275 gallon tote filled with water without difficulty on level ground. Figure they weigh around 2300 pounds.

I think the 7' high is a non-issue - I stack the totes all the time.

Well it handled it no problem, can easily lift 2900 to full height without straining, thought I would pass it on
