    Lifting Hook on older HTP MIG 240 ?

    Has anybody put a lifting hook on an HTP MIG 240. I am always putting my welders on and off my truck. My engine driven welders are easy. I use my bucket loader to get them on the truck. I want to make a lifting hook for my HTP 240. Got any ideas. Right now I put it in the bucket and strap it. Then get it on the truck and roll it out of the bucket. Takes too long.

    Just make an angle iron tray for it sit in and bolt on a bail that can be removed so the access door can be opened.

    With all that moving around maybe you should make a cage for it to protect it. Add all the lifting rings and tie downs you want to the cage.

    Honestly It wasnt all that marvelous, but basically what others suggested.

    I suggested an (quick removal) Exoskeleton of angle and/or square stock with an eye on top....

    me, I'd prolly just throw a heavy duty strap around it and hoist it up....
