What is the most economical / simple way to move a 5000 lb generator across 100' of grassy, somewhat flat terrain?

Crane truck? Telehandler?

Can you get it on a trailer?

Getting it onto a trailer would be no problem as there are a multitude of forklifts on site. And, I do have a 7,000 trailer.

Getting it off the trailer and onto the pad might be an issue as none of the forklifts are rough terrain capable.

I would, but I still haven't got my last two hernias fixed.

When I try to do a situp, something that looks vaguely like a football starts to rise out of my abdomen. :laughing:

Do you use it to get out of cleaning around the house? :brows:

Wait! I haven't told you about the one lower down yet!

That's right! Enough about moving generators, LET'S TALK ABOUT MY HERNIAS!


I jumped down out of a scissor lift a few years and when I hit the concrete, it felt kind of like somebody had kicked me in the nuts. It isn't too bad most the time, but some times (like this week) it gives me a fair amount of grief.

These threads never stay on topic. Best thing is to just roll with it. :thumbup:

I've gone through a few hernia repairs and now I have to do it again. No damn fun at all:no:

It's on my list of things to do - someday.
I recommend getting it done. The pain and discomfort from the surgery lasts about 3 weeks or so and then you feel wonderful.............until the next one.
