My husband manages movers and shakers. This video is taken by him. Learned how to hoist a body (a ships propeller) having a weight of 56 ton, on a Friday. Actually a crane of capacity 150 ton is needed for that. But when you don’t have the resource, you can do it with the help of two cranes with 75 ton capacity guided by three well experienced operators. The safety personals may not agree, but the work can be done safely.
First lift the body, bring the low bed of the trailer beneath it, then lower it on to the trailer slowly. Take it to the desired place. To unload, hoist the body slightly from the trailer and then, drive away the trailer and carefully place the body in the required place.
