    Yep.. that's what I use (except it's 4 wheels and I borrow it from a neighbor). I've moved several BP's, my 3500lb lathe, a 4000lb (?) Nardini and many other machines on one. All with pallet jacks under "custom and heavy" pallets bolted to the machines. For a lathe I use two pallet jacks, on under each end.

    In addition to ratchet straps, I use chain binders to lock the machine down to the trailer.

In order to bring a lathe home I need to line up a trailer, have the lathe loaded. When home I need to call a tow truck to have the lathe lifted off the trailer. These things are best done on week days.

    The best option, IMO, for a trailer is a hydraulic drop deck that can be found a Sunbelt Rentals for under $100 per day.

    I'd stick to the original offer or maybe $350. You can try to explain the cost to get it going, it might help persuade the kid out of it. As others have said, it could be a complete wreck inside and this setback could be fate pulling your tail out of a potential fire.

    If nothing else I learned something about wheeling and dealing. Jim

    A friend and I showed up to purchase and move a small Radial Arm Drill, with his semi, a rented carry deck crane, and my pickup truck loaded with rigging tools. The seller gave us a song and dance about the his son wanting the RAD, I told him we had a previous deal that had been made with a hand shake( with witnesses ). So he could either complete the deal or see us in court, we left with the RAD on the trailer about two hours later. Took it to my friends shop unloaded and installed it.
    The whole day had been rain and snow, we got wet but he got his radial arm drill.

    You should have just bailed in at that price.

    It's not under power,it doesn't have a chuck or steadies and no other tooling.I would not offer a dime more than scrap price since there is no way of knowing the history of the machine.For all we know the lathe could have a headstock full of busted gear teeth.
    I would make him understand that it's just a chunk of scrap until proven otherwise.
