To roll a transmitter, we've used the black Natural Gas pipes that you can buy at Menards. I believe they're 3-4 feet long usually. They're very rigid and shouldn't crush under the weight of that Continental.

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?
