I have a 2T picker with extendable legs, it's a little beefier than normal. I bought a 60's Kondia that is about 2ton, so I had to pick off the upper ram to move it. The smaller bridgeports run only about 1600 lbs, so it should work looking at it from my armchair.

I also picked a early 60's MKL lathe that was easily 2T. I had to jack it up and then push it a foot before it blead down, still did the job.

Nice job on the base though. Looks tough.
