Lickity weighed in at a hefty 1800 pounds and with a small base gave us some pause when it came time to figure out how to transport him safely. Straps over the load would quickly wear through the paint. The answer was to bolt him to a heavy duty, custom made pallet. Once he was bolted to the steel base we welded on a sturdy taller structure which will be used to strap the pallet onto the truck deck. We’ll screw some dunnage to the wooden deck around the load for extra insurance against lateral movement. We’ve learned through experience that too strong is much better than almost strong enough. Tomorrow morning Lickity will be on his way.
