Heavy tools, machines, and equipment can be very dangerous to move. Whether moving the heavy object within the same building or across the country to an entirely new location, the video shows extreme caution is required to prevent damage or injuries to workers. The primary considerations when moving heavy tools and other equipment include the size, weight, and distance to cover. Once you know those, you can create an effective plan that moves your heavy and bulky items quickly and without injuring one or more workers.
Many machine moving companies use a variety of hand trucks, hoists, and lifts. Those kinds of items often have electrical or hydraulic systems that make easy work of heavy and bulky items that are dangerous for workers to move by hand.
A hoist is a good example of an item that enables you to affix a heavy or bulky item and move it from one location to another without running a high risk of worker injury. Pry bars and other heavy-lifting tools help workers to maneuver and place heavy tools and equipment on appropriate platforms for safe movement. Hydraulic hoists, forklifts, and power pallet jacks help to get heavy objects where you need them.
