Thread-topic: [CRTech] RE: Moving Heavy Objects
We had to move a transformer a few years ago ... Removing the old one from the transmitter and installing a new one.
I used a portable car engine hoist. It worked great and no crushed fingers or broken backs.
So, yes two guys can move the transformer.

Umpteen years ago, me and one other guy used a similar method to dispose of "Ol' Bessie" at WFIF. (Donated to a college electronics class.) Removing that heavy iron first, makes the "box" weigh about the same as a refrigerator, easily manhandled by two guys. ;)

FWIW: We moved about 15 or so tube type transmitters easily by removing the plate transformers and rolling them and the transmitters on pieces of 2" iron pipe (individually of course).  Three guys can make short work of the task this way.

Blessings!
