You may also be able to borrow a motor puller from a small
garage. Some have about a 4000 cylinder, but only about 2000
lift rating. That is with the boom all the way IN. As you go
out to the max on them it may only lift about 400 or 500 # so be
careful about overloading it at full extension. Also, be sure
the legs are extended past the point of attachment on the boom!
This prevents tipping over forward.
Another possibility might be attaching a chain fall or
come-a-long to the ceiling and then removing it when finished.
3) If you're not too far from a business with a fork lift you
might be able to get someone to run by and just sit it on the
bench with a fork lift -- since you did say it was going in the
garage, I'm assuming there'd be no trouble getting a fork lift in
