Unloading & Moving
1. Lifting Oven with a Forklift
Be sure to use a forklift rated to lift at least 5,000 lbs. (See Chart Below). The oven stand is equipped with fork pockets near the bottom of the base of the stand. The oven is very top-heavy so use extreme caution when lifting the oven.
|Model #||Approx Ship Weight||Req’d Forklift||Min. Fork Length|
|WS-BH-3030||1,100 lbs.||2,000 lbs.||4′|
|WS-BH-4343||2,100 lbs.||3,200 lbs.||5′|
|WS-BH-4355||2,500 lbs.||3,500 lbs.||5′|
|WS-BH-4836||1,800 lbs.||3,200 lbs.||5′|
2. Using A Pallet Jack To Move A Bistro Oven
Once the oven has been removed from the delivery vehicle, it can easily be moved on flat surfaces using a pallet jack.
THE OVEN IS VERY TOP-HEAVY, MOVING THE OVEN UP OR DOWN A RAMP ON A PALLET JACK IS NOT SAFE!
Moving a Wood Stone oven can present interesting challenges to even the most experienced riggers. Take your time, use your head, secure the proper equipment and make safety your first priority. Please don’t hesitate to call the factory for technical support (1-800-578-6836). Please visit our Installation Solutions Page for more information or contact our factory directly.
The customer will receive an Oven Shipping Notification when the oven leaves the Wood Stone factory. This will include a PRO# and a trucking company contact number. Wood Stone recommends that you confirm the delivery date/time with the trucking company before committing to heavy equipment and/or labor. Our goal is smooth and safe delivery. Thank you.
Optional: Lifting Oven With a Crane
The oven arrives with lifting eyes attached. When craning a Bistro Home oven, use a spreader bar with a two-legged sling rigged on each end.
The spreader bar should be of a sufficient length to keep the sling from contacting the oven.
Note: A crane can be used only with flat-bed truck deliveries.
