How do I get it off the trailer when it arrives?
Crane, forklift, a couple of forklifts, a bunch of bobcats or whatever works. This machine comes completely assembled and welded together. It can be picked up by lift points on top or from under the chamber with care. If you pick it with a forklift use bolsters to spread across the frame of the chamber to prevent damage to the exterior sheetmetal.
Is this kiln difficult to run?
Can you press a button? Then no.
