If you are in the business of collecting arcade games then there is always one particularly painful process you have to go through – moving the cabinet from one location to another. Ever since I bought my first cabinets, a 1942 and a Zaxxon back in 2000, I’ve had multiple “opportunities” to try and figure out how to move the games onto a truck or van, secure them down, drive a nail-biting drive of some distance and then reverse the process at my home or arcade. Some cabinets look like they weigh much less then they actually do and of course you have to be careful so as to not damage the game as you move it. The day that someone comes up with an anti-gravity dolly, they will probably become a trillionaire over night, just because of how incredibly useful such a device would be (and not just in moving arcade cabinets around)
Here’s a story of someone who took on the mighty challenge of moving a 6-player X-Men cabinet – known for it’s bulky size, this is probably one of the worst cabinets to have to move around and up a stairs at that. As cool as dual screen cabinets are (and this has me thinking of the new Darius Burst Another Chronicle – I hope that thing has wheels) their cumbersome size is their Achilles Heel so-to-speak.
