I have moved a quite few gensets and motor/engines. If it is skid mounted, just jack it upoff the base and set it on Hillman rollers and away you go! Good luck!

we just did one last week. you say it is cat powered. if it is it will weigh alot more than 3500lbs. the engine on ours was industral V-8. I paid Caterpillar to come to job site and seperate engine from generator they also drained and collected all fluids. they tagged all wiring and lines for reconnect. it cost me $850.00 for this work but i turned around and sold it for $7000.00

You can jack it up and use steel pipes or round stock and roll it out the door. If you can find machinery dollies ,put one at each corner they work best.sunbelt rentals use to rent them. You should be able to drag it out if it is on skids.

I possibly have a job that they basically built the bldg around a genset. It is a very large Caterpillar diesel. I need to get it out of the building. It is in its own room w an i beam frame. It will fit out the doors, and the exit to the building is a loading dock height dble door. It will fit out there as well. I just want to know if anyone has done something like this before? I want to try and salvage the generator and not damage it. My biggest issue is getting it off the base and onto something that i can roll it around on. Skids?? im guessing it weighs less that 3500 lbs. Any ideas would be appreciated.
