11154RE: [PPLetterpress] Re: Dismantling a Windmill for moving
- Nov 5, 2009Peter,
I don't know if he is still in the business, but I worked with a man named
John Guteck who was a Heidelberg technician. He installed the Windmill that
you purchased from me, taught me how to use it, and serviced it for me every
He was located outside of Chicago and the contact numbers I have for him are
847-550-1617 (business) and 847-804-1617 (cell). It's been a while since I
last called him, but maybe he is still around.
Hope all is well with you.

A cautionary tale indeed.
Don't use a pallet jack on a ramp.
Glad to hear you and the press survived.
Also glad to hear you've got a German tech nearby. Great resource!!
Anybody know of a Windmill service tech in the Upper Midwest?
