We move radiators!

A building downtown is undergoing remodelling and removing their radiators.  We had a chance to save them from the scap heap and so we moved 7 radiators this afternoon.

All were large tube type radiators from the 1930s.  Of the 37" tall variety, we moved 2 that were 6 tubes x 18 sections (540 lbs each), 2 that were 6 tubes by 7 sections, 1 that was 4 tubes x 14 sections, and in the shorty style 20" tall, we moved 1 that was 7 tubes x 20 sections and another that was 7 tubes x 22 sections.

What a Blast!  We really know how to have a good time!

    Pumping a little iron?

    That's what I call heavy metal.
