I’m thinking of pulling the trigger on a new Grizzly G0654 jointer. The problem is that my workspace is down in the basement of my small rowhome, and I’m not sure about how feasible it will be to take delivery of this thing and try and get it down there.
Basically I’m thinking that initially I’ll need to pay the extra $35 for lift gate service to get the delivery to ground level safely. Then I’ll need to find some way to get everything up about 4 steps through the front door and back down about 15 very narrow stairs (27” wide) into the basement. Is this possible? Does the jointer come in two packages (jointer itself + mobile stand) so I’ll be able to get each box down to the basement in turn and then assemble it down there? Anyone know what kind of weights/dimensions each package is likely to be and whether a couple of able-bodied people should be able to shift them comfortably?
Thanks for any help/guidance,
