Stick it on a pallet.

Sounds like we'll go with pipes for the inside-the-building action. Now I'm debating renting/borrowing a skidsteer or going with a pallet jack and ramps up to a trailer. Leaning towards rolling it up to the trailer, but I'm thinking palletizing it first might be valuable so I can move it later easier. 

Thanks for bearing with my external processing, guys! I appreciate the wisdom!

I recommend pipes as well. I've never moved a transmitter, but I've moved a very large Harris printing press. Depending on how far you've got to go it can be pretty handy to have a couple of guys to move the pipes. Saves your back from the up and down and speeds things up substantially.

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?
