    solution and ideas how to move the Rogue Monster Lat pull down into garage from curb?

    I wanted to tap into this forum's experience moving heavy fully assembled units into their homes. I want to purchase the rogue monster lat pulldown, but unfortunately, they only ship the unit fully assembled. Below photo is that of my driveway and my garage door, my garage is 9 feet from floor to ceiling. I have a 1000 lb rated dolly, and a 5500 lb standard pallet jack, but the pallet the lat pulldown will come with is 110 inches, or slightly over 9 feet. They said they will be shipping the rogue monster lat pulldown lying down horizontally. Is there any other tools or some trick you guys know of to get this thing into my garage and set up where I want it?

    The item in question: https://www.roguefitness.com/lat-pul...ow-stand-alone

    Where's the old thread with the guy who couldn't figure out how to stand his Rogue pulldown up off the pallet?

    Remove the stack. It should take 30 minutes or less. It won't be hard to move from there.

    Lol, I remember the Thread, now that guy really needed help.

    No bad idea, some drivers are really helpful and will truck the pallet where you want it, others won't move from the kerbside, it's always worth offering an incentive.

    Yes, stand the unit up, remove the stack, then it's a relatively easy move with a furniture dolly or two.

    I emailed Rogue about a partial disassembly and they're adamantly against this idea for some reason. How difficult is it to remove and put together? I assume the mechanism can't be that complex.

    Wtf at shipping it fully assembled? What if you had to take that thing up or down a flight of stairs like that?

    Rogue shouldn't even be shipping it with the stack on. If it's laid down and the stack isn't supported at any point, you run the risk of the guide rods bending.

    Lat pulldowns are among the easiest machines to disassemble/reassemble. Looking at the photos of the Rogue, it looks similar to how the old Hoist and Life Fitness machines secure the rods. Remove the bolts that hold the top plate on (usually 2 bolts). Then remove the plate or slide the plate down the rods if the cable runs through the center of the plate. If the rods are bolted at the bottom, unbolt there also. Have a partner tip the stack and remove the top plate. You can either leave it attached to the cable and bungee it to the uprights to keep it out of the way or you can simply unbolt that also. If you are going to unbolt it, mark it's position on the threads (paint marker, Sharpie, White Out, whatever) so you're not fiddling with it during reassembly trying to get the tension right. Then you just need to remove the rest of the stack. I usually hug the stack, then have a partner tip it and remove some plates. Then I have him pull the guide rods out once the stack is low enough to be stable. Finally, I have him grab several plates at a time, which goes quickly once the guide rods are out. You can just leave the rods in until you remove each and every plate, but it gets tedious to do it that way.

    I tried to break down the steps, so it may look like a bigger job than it is, but it really should only take 2 guys 30 minutes to get the stack off and another 30 to get it back on.

    I'd get a different one in the first place since Rogue's isn't really that highly reviewed. Regardless, the only way to move machines like that is to remove the stack and go from there. With my functional trainer, even with the stacks removed it was incredibly heavy and took further disassembly and some good moving dollies. Definitely throw the delivery guy a $20 to get it as close as possible too.

    Looks easy as hell, just time consuming. Just like a big erector set. Ratchet set and some sockets and you could take it into tiny pieces and then rebuild it. Just take pictures and label stuff if you are not mechanically inclined so that you can reassemble it correctly.

    I recommend buying a mechanic ratchet and socket set, it is handy for this sort of thing. I got a 300 piece one from Sears ages ago and it has added value to many things I do, not just automotive projects. Sears/Craftsmen is more or less a dead brand but you can buy that type of kit from Lowes, Home Depot, etc.
