I just got this lathe in my garage today. I bought it a few weeks ago, and had to wait to pick it up. Got up last week to pick it up, and kept it on my flatbed through the week with a tarp over it. Today, a rigging company came over and moved it off the flatbed into my garage. This beast weighs about 4000 lbs. It is stout and built like a brick $#!T#OU$E... Trivia: This machine came out of the Hershey factory in Oakville, CA. They closed down in 2008 (4 years ago) when they moved their operations to Mexico. Hershey was going to keep it but then decided after a couple months that they weren't sure what to do with it, so sold it to the company that managed all the moving for them. The seller bought it from them and was planning to keep it for his own use, but being a welder he found that he didn't use it over the past 4 years. This is possibly one of the finest toolroom lathes ever built. No power to it yet, it takes 220v 3-phase, 220v 1-phase, and 110v 1-phase. I believe all is powered off the 3-phase, the main unit is a 5HP motor.
