Thanks, yeah, my wife likes the chimney, and wants me to do the same stone work around the coal stove. Maybe next year ;)

Sky Manor used to have a real old timer, giving the flight lessons. I'm not sure who was teaching the parachuting.

Send me a PM of where you are in Warren (Warren county? Warren Twnshp?)
I'm interested to find out where you found your stove. THATS AMAZING! someone just throwing it away? Kewl....

Picked it up at the dealer with my pickup truck, used (4) 3" wide ratchet ties downs on it. Drove it to the side entrance of the house and unloaded it with the tractor and a set of pallet forks to get it in the door. My HVAC guys (4) of them slid it about 2 feet into place.

I backed my van up to the back door. Slid my Hitzer 503 at 600lb. ( well about 500lb. stripped) onto a 3' by 3' 3/4 " plywood and then slid the stove and plywood down a 2"by12" plank into the house . At the stove shop they said I would never get in the house alone. I placed 6 lengths of 2 1/2" pvc pipe under the plank and ply. and rolled the stove to the hearth. When I got close I had just two pipes under the stove and I was able to pivot the stove. Lined it up in place and dropped it onto a piece of 1/4" ply. and Walked it into place using a wonder bar.Then I installed the stack and slid it in the rest of the way. Then I used the wonder bar and shims to remove the 1/4" ply. I had taken a picture on my cell phone to show the woman at the stove shop that I got it in.

Here is how we got the Beast VF3000 down to the basement with 3 people. Talk about heavy! Assembled is around 900#'s+ ( Of course, disassembled everything!), I think the top vessel part had to be 500+lbs. Didn't get any pics, but here's the diagram. It was actually heavy enough, we had to drag it down the 2x4's down the steps. I don;t think I could have gotten any bigger boiler down the narrow steps and low door height at the bottom.

I will use and engine hoist to lift the vessel back onto the base once it gets into place. Currently on a pallet with caster wheels, so I can move it around the basement.

It worked good and no one got hurt or threw their backs out!! :) Only took about 45 mins.

I have a little gym in my basement that I and a few burly guys lift weights in. The Hitzer was my heaviest stove so far weighing in at almost 400#.
It was a two man job for me and my buddy who is about 6' 4".
We took it one step at a time down 10 cement steps then slid it across the cement floor about 20 feet.
Getting it off the pickup truck was the hard part.

Make sure you know exactly where its going before you lug it in.

My friend and I picked the Chubby up out of the garage I was in and we put in the pickup. Then when I got it home my neighbor helped me unload it. Then when I was done cleaning it and refinishing I picked it up, put it on a Dolly and wheeled it into the house where I then wheeled it in front of my fireplace and I picked it up and place it on the floor. It only weighs 250 pounds.

After driving over 12 hours round trip to get a steal of a deal on a Keystoker (I live in Southern VA and the stoker was in Duncannon Pa) I backed my U-Haul trailer up to the ground level basement door. Rigged the rented heavy duty dolly w/ strap around stove and rolled it into house. Then parked the lifted side onto the mantle. I then used the old back muscle to heave it onto the mantle. Used car ramps to steady it while I got my stove pipe all hooked up. Then just slide into place. Only had one little hickup when it tried to pull a brick up from my mantle.

Hardest part about getting stove installed, rigging round stove pipe into a rectangle fireplace flue. :bang:

No pictures but I guess you can imagine how crazy this may have looked. Backed my little Dodge Dakota up to my front steps. Was about 4' from the end of the tailgate to the front door. Went into the house, pulled my son's door off of it's hinges (we were taking it off anyway) that is made out of 3/4" tongue and groove pine and laid it from the tailgate to the front door. Then me and three of my friends picked up the DS-1600 and put it on a furniture dolly made out of 2x4's and attached some straps to it and pushed/dragged it up the door and into the living room. Then we had to pick the stove and the dolly up one more time to get it over another 1" step from my foyer to the actual living room.

well, it was easy to get the boiler to it's new home. 2 come-alongs tied to the lintel beam of my garage door, it took 10 min to lower it from my truck to the garage floor. from that point. a overly stressed fridge dolly and some beer fueled grunt work moved it the last 10 ft.

the hard part, getting it in my truck! The older couple I got it from said they had equipment to get it into my truck, but couldn't help us since there were recovering from sugary. They said their son had a green house and all sorts of equipment. (I envisioned a ft end loader or a skid loader) OK, great, I didn't bring much equipment, being trusting that they knew what they said. well they had this battery powered hand truck thing that couldn't lift squat. %^*! ended up making a ramps out of 2x6 s they had flying around and dissembling the boiler and using 2 come-alongs to drag it inside my truck. btw, the boiler didn't slide up the ramps, the ramps slid on the ground till they were vertical and the boiler ended up pivoting into my truck on the bumper due to sheer force and the fact I have a 5th wheel to tie the 2 come-alongs to. thank goodness the boiler has lifting hooks!

We got my koker off the truck and into the house with an appliance dolly then hooked a heavy duty climbing rope to the dolly and ran it through a set of friction (rock climbing) pulleys hooked to my truck and guided it down into the basement with my neighbors friend controlling the rope with two fingers!!!

I believe I used a ramp to get my Russo up the front steps. I then used a Skateboard with monster wheels to roll it across the house.

I used a furniture dolly. Took of everything I could then strapped the stove in. taking it off the tacoma wasn't too bad but up the steps myself was a one step at a time deal. Then, the dolly was wider than the door too the most direct route where I needed to get the stove :mad: so i had to go round the long way. It's up on a brick (on end) high platform made of bricks and flagstones. Getting it up there was not a problem but onto the base, I needed help.
