I am just planning on how to get my KA-6 down my bilco door. I have 2 wash line poles concreted in at the top of the steps. I want to attach a come along to the poles and winch the boiler down the steps. Does anybody know if this come along from Northern Tool goes in reverse or is it just made for pulling?

Thanks!

I believe they'll all reverse. It's a manual deal of holding tension on the handle, releasing the pall and the allowing the cable to un-spool. Then repeat.

I'd rent a chain fall instead. And you better make sure those clothes poles are in the ground good. Might be better to attach it to your car or trucks bumper.

Yeah maybe I will just back my truck up the bilco door and ite it off to the receiver. I will have to see if I can rent a chain fall. The 1 rental place I checked did not have one for rent.

And it is a pain in the butt when lowering something. Go to your local discount tool store and grab a 3000# winch for $40-50 and you can run it off a car battery. You will have plenty of reasons to keep it around after use it, trust me. The come along gets creepy, I never liked using them to lower serious weight. Use the truck, if you can. If you bend those poles, your going to be looking at them for a long time. :D

If you can get your truck up to the bilco door why not just chain the stove to the truck and have someone inch the truck forward while you guide the stove down the steps?

I bought this at Harbor Freight and used it to take the AA 130 out of the back of my pickup, then lower it down through the bilco doors onto boards, i used it once, its for sale currently.

two of us lowerd my 600lb+ Harman VF down the basement steps on 2x6s screwed onto the treads.The friction of the boiler on the wood took a good 300 pounds off the rope we were holding on to.Slid right down onto a pair of old tires we placed at the bottom of the steps.The edges of the boiler box planed the 2x6s a good bit .I used deck screws to mount the 2x6s and sank them well below flush. The whole thing was almost to easy as from the pickup truck accross the floors and down the steps took only 20 minutes.

Picked up my new Kaa2 at Keystokers factory. They used a forklift to put it in my pickup. We (me and three guys) slid it down some 2x10s onto the driveway. i have a walk-out basement but we had to carry it around the house and through a gate over the soft grass. We strapped two 2x4s on the side and carried it like the ark of the covenant!! When we got it by the door our dolly finally showed up, and then we just wheeled it through the basement into its home next to the old oiler boiler. I then hoisted it up via chains and a chain pull onto the blocks, made a nice lift hook by bolting an anchor shackle to the floor joist above. Went to the chiropractor for the next month!!

I picked the furnace up with a tilt snowmobile trailer. After I got it home, I removed the doors and fire brick to lighten the load, slid the furnace off of the skid, put the cardboard box back on and laid the furnace down on its back side on the trailer. I am lucky to have an outside door leading down my basement. I attached a hand winch to the front of the trailer and to a strap that I had wrapped around the top and bottom of furnace. I backed the trailer up to the door and tilted the trailer and let gravity take over. Of course I had help from my son. Once I got it down the basement, I used dowels under the feet to move it into position.

billw I thought about just using the truck to lowering the boiler but the wash line poles are in the way. they are only about 15 feet from the bilco door so i would have to position the truck on the other side of the poles which would require more chain than I own. Guess I could pick some chain up. I'll also look into a winch but I think that will end up costing more.

Lots of good info in this thread.

How one guy gets a 485lb stove off his truck. Took about two hours, but it made the 7ft. journey OK.
