Default Shipping container size

Hey folks i just ordered a stinger II with recoil prep and did not ask how large the shipping container is - can you give me some rough dimensions that i can work with in terms of delivery as I was thinking for getting a hydraulic drop trailer to bring it home - just not sure how wide it would need to be.

I have been wearing grant out with questions so thought i would ask this one here

Thanks in advance

Use a car flatbed wrecker. They can tilt to unload. Slides right down the bed with a little dish soap.

Thank you both!!

I was thinking of a hydraulic trailer but not sure of the distance between the wheel wells so will find out. If that is not going to work i will need to find a wrecker

Did you have the recoil or the recoil prep added ?

No but there's plenty of room around it so they likely use the same size crate. Anything bigger wouldn't for into a regular semi truck box.
I'm just uncrated mine now.

Also found that most trailers we measured were only like 1" under 7ft between the wheel wells... Had to do this.

Thanks - i dont have a skidloader of any type. But i think my idea of the trailer wont work at that wide. I need to see what i can rent. Perhaps i just need a trailer and loader. I think the machine with the crating is under 2k lbs so should be doable. Or get a tow company to slide it off
