I used some ratchet straps, and a chain fall attached to some rafters. Amazing how heavy a Stinger 1 is!

I didn't feel warm & fuzzy about lifting my Stinger 1 so I bought some straps from HF and rented an engine lift. Maybe if I was 30 again...
I don't remember what the lift cost but it wasn't very much.

Default Lift

Bruce,

I stuck a 5' piece of gas pipe through the frame(parallel with x axis) at each end. The better half, son, daughter and myself then each grabbed an end of pipe and lifted on to stand. Worked like a charm.

Yeah, I'm a wuss with things like that. I had to do the lift and carry it several feet to the table, just figured I had too much into it to take the risk.

As an added benefit the rental yard let me toss all of the crating material in their dumpster. :)

That is how 4 guys at Camaster loaded my Stinger onto my truck. It wasn't that much of a struggle, but I don't think I would ask my wife to support a corner by herself.

I used 2x6's laid flat with a few legs under them for support and screwed them to table left my stinger on pallet and once I got the edge of pallet on ramps using a 2x4 as pry bar inched the machine up ramp and screwed blocks to ramps to keep from sliding back down when on table using some blocks cut pallet from under machine with reciprocating saw. may sound complicated but worked well with little effort and done with no other help.
