Greg was planning to come and pick it up when I realized my Robotics Competition in Cleveland last week would bring me pretty close to Michigan, so I got the bright idea to rent a cargo van for the trip and bring the boiler (the blue Dodge needed a rest and besides forecast showed some nasty weather coming).
Long story short Dave and I discovered that the boiler wouldn't fit standing up on the pallet..... so after laying on it's side it was neatly stowed into the back of the van on it's Pallet, thanks for the tractor services and the pallet Dave! I now had the required weight over the rear wheels to negotiate the impending snow storm forecast for my planned travel to Cleveland on Wednesday afternoon and evening.
Greg and I made the transfer on Saturday in the parking lot of the Cleveland State University Arena.... we figured a way to get the two vehicles at the same height and were just about to make the transfer when the university police showed up and wanted to know why we were attempting such an unsafe act!
Well after a little discussion and chocking the front wheels to make them happy they left us to the business at hand. Here are a couple pics, batteries went dead in the camera.
