Transporting a giant robot — Part 1

Recently I picked up an old Fanuc Arcmate SR robot on eBay for very cheap. Only hitch was that it was in Melbourne, about 1000km away.

The seller kindly helped us load it up, and remove the old steel base.

Some straps and tying later: Tied down robot

And copious wrapping in case it started raining (it did):
