How much does a 200tdi weigh - need to hire engine crane
« on: January 08, 2010, 21:10:06 »
Hi Guys
             I may need to hire a engine crane, HSS do one that will lift 500kg, is that enough to lift a 200tdi clear of a disco ?

Should be OK, total weight of a Discovery is around 2000KG so a quarter of that for the engine should be fine.

Are you taking it over the top or cutting the front panel because the smaller ones dont have the height!

You need a very high lift to get the lump clear of the slam panel,once you have lifted the lump a bit you could remove the front wheels and lower the front down but not on the hoists leg or you will be stuck!

imo its well worth cutting out the slam panel, you could allway put plate on it and rivet it back in?
