Steel coils

Recommended Posts

Hey Nick ... when those heavy, heavy steel coils are lying flat on the pavement, what technique do you used to get an edge lifted to be able to get chain or a strap threaded through the center-hole ... something to avoid smashed fingers.     R.

Those coils weighed 250lbs each.   Simple crow bar with skate and 2x4 got the job done.  

 With larger coils we use a cable choker or loop choker to lift edge and then crib around coil.   In some cases we use the choker to continue to lift and set coil up.
