Does anyone out there have any hints or advice on moving a Probat L12 coffee roaster? I know I need to take off the cooling tray and the handles on the side to fit it through the door, but how much more should I take it apart? At over 1200 pounds, I think a pallet jack and a truck with a lift gate might work, but how do I get a pallet under the machine?

how do you get it on a pallet? Very carefully. We moved out 60 kilo and afterburner down to our new location. We used a forklift and a wee bit of muscle..not a fun task I will tell you that. I remember my heart stopping a few times as the crane picked up my afterburner and set it on the truck..sigh not fun! Good luck!

The Probat L12 is flush to the floor and doesn''t have feet like an Ambex. There is no room to slide a forklifts forks under it. You will have to use elbow grease to get it on a pallet to ship. Unless someone else knows a way... anyone..? Bueller?
