Had my lathe delivered to my shop doorway a few weeks ago, I have a fork lift so unloading off the truck was easy. Dropped both the pallets it was shipped on down onto my welding table which has a 1" plate top and is on heavy duty solid castors
Stripped it down, cleaned it up, oiled it, contacted Grizzly for the missing tools and damaged control panel plate, then I strapped it up and used my trusty Harbor Freight cherry picker to take it into my shops 'clean room' and lift it onto the bench.
Dear old wifey steered while I pushed/pulled, then she delicately lowered it onto straight onto the mounting bolts. Pretty good control of the lowering valve on the cherry picker too, a slow decent that was barely perceivable
