Moving a 210

Could two strong men lift an empty 210 off a base and set on dollies by themselves?

Took 6 strong men to move my ex's 225. You will want at least 4 people.

I've owned a construction company for 40+ years, defining strong isn't an art form

It's just hard to get guys on a Sunday morning and that's my time window.

I'll try to ask at least four and hope three make it which would make four with myself.

I was hoping someone would post...sure no problem with two men...but I kinda knew better

Thanks

Lol 😂😂. Understand totally. I own a tree removal service and am amazed at times what walks thru the door looking for a job. Not an art form at all !!

I needed 6 for my 265 but the previous owner siliconed rocks and gravel to the rear glass. I guessed another 250-300 pounds of weight. In between a change of residences I did get it rock free and we did it with 4 easily.

I added a wood box to the top of one of the dollies exactly 1/4" lower than where the tank was setting and simply slid the tank over, ratcheted it down, wheeled it outside and up a 3/4" plywood ramp onto the trailer.

I was worried (scared) but it went smooth.
