Default Pumped about a Stumps!

Well, if all goes well, come Monday I'll be the proud papa of a new-to-me Stumps Baby! I'm really pumped about this.

Quick question to the Brethren: How easy/difficult would it be to load the Baby into a pickup truck? I know it has some heft but could a couple guys hoist it in safely?

Cheers,
R.

That Baby weighs close to 400 pounds. It would take a couple of very strong guys to hoist it up into the bed of a pickup. I would try to find a third victim [er--helper].

I think you could use a 1/2' sheet of plywood leaned onto the tailgatevand use it to lay the baby on the back and slid it into the pickup tailgate and into the bed. Use cardboard and blankets to protect Stump's beautiful paint job. I have a xl baby and it's a beast! I used this method to get it up 4 steps onto my deck. If you take out all the grates and ball valve it might reduce some weight. At this point every reduced pound maters.

Thanks guys. Will definitely protect the Baby to make sure she doesn't get all scratched up in the process. Looking forward to posting some pics and getting it all fired up next week!

Lawn mower ramps worked for me when I transported my Stumps Baby.

We do something like this with our backwoods. I have back braces for them and tilt them into the back of my truck. Though the Stumps weighs more. Be careful and get a 3rd or 4th guy

WOOT! Just got her home and time to setup. Everything looked perfect and will post some pics as soon as she's out of the truck. It feels like Christmas morning! :)
