The correct way of lifting Colchester lathes is with a lifting eye screwed in between the ways just in front of the chuck. Think you'll struggle to get an engine crane to reach sufficiently to lift it and get it onto a trailer. An A-frame type hoist would be better. I would go with the 7.5 tonner with tail lift.
