I would think so.

Just take your time and make sure your chains/straps are in good shape.

Its nice to have some extra eyes to be sure you dont ding up the side of the truck.

side it to the gate if you can...

Should I put Ballast on the rear? If so roughly how much? I might as well ask another question: would my 1/2 ton 1996 Chev.Ex-Cab be able to transport 4 of them for a total 2000lbs a 100 mile? I'm really wondering!

That is kinda heavy to move around that high up. I would lift it just clear of the bed and then move the truck out from under it and then lower the welder to just clear of the ground before trying to move it.

Akkk My 2001 half ton is only rated to carry 700lbs in the bed. I might put two of them in there but not 4. I also think you would be over the rear axel weight limit. It should be posted on the door jam or in the glove box.

Can you rent or borrow a trailer? Moving the payload off a lower trailer will be much safer and more practical. Either way, I think my insticts would be to slide them into the loader bucket as far as possible and use chains and the center hook to secure the top end of the load. And yes, you will need a 400-500 pounds of ballast at a minimum. Good luck

I would not hesitate for a minute hauling 2000 in a 1/2 ton pickup. A cord of quality seasoned firewood weighs 3500- 4000 and a half cord is no stretch for a 1/2 ton pickup. It never seemed overloaded in the way it handled or braked. I delivered wood for years in college that way, of course I always ran an F150, but they are all basically the same. You may be illegal, but just follow the rule of the road, "don't break more than 1 law at a time" NO drinking or speeding etc.

When you go to lift it to make sure you don't hit your truck or ruane the welder. Use two strapes and put the under the to sides of the welder. then bring the together at the top then lift and that should do.

Your 4110 with 410 loader has a maximum rated lift capacity of 800 lbs. at pivot pin to max. height. You should be able to lift it if connected at the correct position. So, if you were to try lifting it from the front edge of the bucket, it may not lift it. If the hook position you noted which is closer to the pivot pin doesn't work, there is a large pipe that is a cross-member behind the pivot pin closer to the tractor. If you put a steel shaft (1" diameter or bigger) through there and connect to the welder with straps on both sides that will do it for sure.

You should be able to haul 2,000 lbs. with a 1/2 ton truck if you can get some of them pushed way to the front. You will want your tires filled to max. recommended air pressure. Make sure to block the welders in and tie them down somehow. Drive careful and avoid sharp turns and sudden stops. It would be better if you had a 3/4 ton or trailer.

When taking them off of a truck, the best way was mentioned by just slightly lifting them above the bed and then drive the truck forward. Lower them to just above the ground if you have to move the welder with the tractor. A sudden start or stop will get the welder swaying and take out your grille guard or cut a front tire. Have someone there to help stabilize it when you start/stop. Watch the other guys fingers and toes!

The 4100 is very, very light on the rear end... see pic #2.

First you need to ballast for the empty loader at about 600 pounds.... THEN you have to ballast another 500 pounds for the proposed load. Any combo of wheel weights and three point ballast will do.

I lost count of how many times I pulled the rear end of my 4100 off the ground before I finally started leaving at least 1000 pounds on the rear of the tractor.

It will lift 500 pounds but it may not push that much to full height. That will not be a problem if you are lifting out of a 33 inch high pick-up bed.

Go to U-Haul and rent a trailer for 30 bucks.....
