The engine crane/pickers aren't great for mills, I tried that with mine, I had to assemble the legs to the crane around my mill, then the hook when set on the boom length appropriate for the weight of my mill meant that the ankle of the arm going to the lift eye was so sharp when the arm was high enough to clear the mill, that the arm was going to swing my mill, so I had to use the longer 1 ton hole, which was sketchy in terms of load capacity.

Then once you lift its hard to push with out the mill swinging, so I had to ratchet strap the mill to the body with a block of wood to keep the knee from banging.

Ultimately I just fork lifted it.
