image.jpeg just today seen this at Black Dog salvage in Roanoke, VA. Some may have seen the show Salvage Dogs on TV.
No tape but my guess is 48"X72"X15" . It's sitting outside.

Did you buy it?

At least it's sitting on a stand. Wonder if it's on three points? Still has the factory tag. Looks like a bad rust stain, KCL will take care of it.

If a guy had a use for it, a place to put it, a way to load it, get it home, and unload it, and was willing to pay the considerable cost to recondition and re-certify it, that surface plate might be a great deal if it was free...
