Get a heavy boom truck that has a long set of heavy nylon straps. I cannot get the pic up on my computer but it shouldn"t be no more than 2,200 lbs.
My grandfather built a mobile lobster stand which was 8 x 10' and it only weighed 1,970 lbs. If it's just around your yard the truck shouldn't no more than an hr.

What size is your tractor? What is the estimated weight of the structure?

Tractor isn't big enough - only about 1000lb lift on the FEL. But I think I found a neighbor with a big skid steer that will be available in about a month.

I think that will get the job done. Even if you have to hook a pickup to the back of the skidsteer with a short chain to hold it down. I hope it has forks.

Not done yet. I wrecked my elbow this summer and it slowed me down. I think I found an off road forklift I can rent. I’m hoping to get to it soon but life is busy.

Delayed until the spring/summer. Just had my tricep re-attached a month ago and I have an appt. scheduled for my knee(s) replacement after Christmas. Once I get myself rebuilt then I will tackle this beast.
