Historic House moved with High Tech Eqpt

First It started with building the cribs under the under the I beams. In the first house moves they used hydraulic cylinders with a hand pump to lift the house. A Crib is cross stacked 6X6 hard wood beams. The cylinders are mounted in the stack and as the reach the top pf the stroke they add more timbers and reset the cylinder to go up higher. If you had to do this with hand pumped cylinders it takes a lot of time. The first picture is of the remote hydraulic controller The second shows the beams that they use in the stack in the background is a crib.


The original cabin has a very unusual power unit/ hydraulic control unit. It needs no additional power unit. and operates by a wireless joystick. With both loads they can control the position of the load. Going down Cedar Point they could raise the front up higher if they want. The first picture is of the one piece unit. and the second picture is of the controller.


On the larger load they mount the main hydraulic unit on a special 5th wheel mount that hooks on the I beams and mount wheels on the back. First picture is of the Power unit with the 5th wheel on it. The second one is of the mounting wheel sets 

Ready to go
