As I'm sure many with their boilers will confirm its heavy. I picked ours up from the haulage company and we lifted it in the back of the car with a forklift. Lifting it back out by hand when I got home was a interesting at 140kg it was a challenge.

Photos of my solution can be found at the bottom of this link.

The agricultural boiler is smaller than that of the road loco and showmans, it weight's in at around 110KG some gloves and two people was no problem to move. Don't blame you for making a ramp rob! Just need my workshop finished now then i may be able to get back on with the build. still being inside is better than being out in this snow.... tongue

Glad you got yours out ok. Unfortunately I had the added complication that it was only me to get it out the car.....I needed all seats for my fathers 60th and there was no helping hands around strong enough to help.

Its now you realise how big the engine will be and at the same time scratch you head tring to find all the parts hidden away round the house.

Just a word of warning, make sure you have got all the swarf out of inside of boiler as have spent approx 2 hours retrieving a lot of it using a telescopic magnet which cost me a whopping pound from tescos .

Still got to do mine. My telescopic magnet is to big for the holes. Now I know where to go for a smaller one.
