I have been dreading getting my two drawer renaissance machine out of the basement to take to St. Charles. DAVE bought it off of me and I have been putting it off getting it out to the garage. So tonight I asked my nephew to stop by and help me carry it. When we got to the basement he instructed me to watch out. He picked up the register by himself and carried it upstairs and out to the garage. Man do I owe him. Now it is ready for its trip home. It is safe DAVE.
I have heard stories of guys carrying floor models. Wow

YEARS ago Joan & I used to take a 500 floor cabinet register to the ST Charles coin op show. I put it on a refrigerator hand truck & let the extra set of wheels out & double straped it on. It took both of us to pull it back on both wheels. We carefully wheeled it out into the driveway. I would back my truck up to the drive where my rear wheels were in the gutter which put my tailgate down a bit. We got the handles into the truck as close as we could & then each got a leg & picked it up. It tries to come back at you so you have to be prepared. When we got it in to the flip down wheels I would release them & push it into the truck all the way. When we got to the show we would pull it out far enough to release the extra wheels & standing on the sides, inch it out till the weight shifted & it came down. I guess we did this twice & figured out it wasn't worth it as it didn't sell. I have sold a few of them from the house & loaded them the same way. (also brought them home) The last show we did we only took a floor cabinet without the machine (not on the hand truck). I wasn't in great health & most of the guys helped me get it out but at the end of the show they had all gone home. It was all I could do to get it back in the truck. They are really heavy with or without the machine.
