    Has anyone come up with an innovative way to lay a large floor grinder down to change the plates?  We have an HTC 800.

    The manufacturer recommends pulling off all weights, lifting your leg, putting your foot on the top of the inverter box frame, and pulling back.  Due to the height and weight of the machine, this can be difficult/impossible for shorter or lighter workers. 

    We thought of using a hoist, but have a limited number throughout the facility.

    If you could attach some kind of a handle extension to it, reaching backwards, tipping leverage would be improved. I assume that once it has been tipped part way, it gets easier.
