How about a trip to Harbor Freight Tools for inspiration.  ;o)))

The first image that comes to mind is rolling it on pipes.

So I'm about to remove a Continental 816R-2C. Rumor has it these transmitters can be pretty heavy. I know it can be removed because it was at one point installed, but I'm trying to "work smarter not throw my back out" as a wise man once said. The previous engineer informs me they muscled it through the doorway with crowbars and it was a pretty tight fit. 

 

Any wisdom on making my life easier that doesn't involve cutting a bigger hole in the wall? 

 

What's worked for you in the past? Ramps and rollers, simple-machines style? Pallet jacks? Magnetic levitation?
