Unloading and Moving - Mountain Series
1. Lifting Oven with ForkliftBe sure to use a forklift rated to lift at least the specified required weight. (See Chart Below). Fork length must be at least 5 feet, otherwise, fork extensions should be used.
The oven stand is equipped with forklift pockets just above the angle iron base.
The oven should be lifted by a forklift from the sides only.
Do not lift the oven from the front or rear (please see images).
Important: The oven is very top-heavy so spread the forks as far apart as possible.
|Model #||Oven||Approx. Weight||Minimum Fork Length Required||Required Forklift|
|WS-MS-4||Mt. Chuckanut||2,400 lbs||4'||5,000 lbs.|
|WS-MS-5||Mt. Adams||3,600 lbs.||5'||6,000 lbs.|
|WS-MS-6||Mt. Baker||4,600 lbs.||6'||6,000 lbs.|
|WS-MS-7||Mt. Rainier||6,000 lbs.||7'||9,000 lbs.|
2. Lifting Oven with CraneThe oven arrives with four lifting eyes attached. When craning a Wood Stone 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.
A crane can be used only with flat-bed truck deliveries.
NOTE: Once lifting eyes are no longer needed, remove the lifting eyes one at a time AND BE SURE TO REPLACE THE BOLTS THAT ATTACH THE OVEN TO THE STAND.
3. Using A Pallet Jack To Move A Mountain Series OvenOnce the oven has been removed from the delivery vehicle, it can easily be moved on flat surfaces using a pallet jack.
To lift the oven with a pallet jack, remove the front and rear angle iron stabilizers from the base of the oven stand and place two or three stout 4x4s through the fork pockets. Important: to ensure stability during moving, please raise the oven only high enough to clear the ground.
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 (1-800-988-8103).

DELIVERY NOTE: 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.
THE OVEN IS VERY TOP-HEAVY. MOVING THE OVEN UP OR DOWN A RAMP ON A PALLET JACK IS NOT SAFE!
DO NOT TURN THE OVEN ON ITS SIDE UNLESS YOU HAVE A ROLL OVER CAGE!
