I have a 12x24 Klene Pipe mobile shelter that I'd like to move to my back field, now that it's fenced. Allegedly, it can be moved by simply chaining the round steel skids to the right tractor/truck and hauling it off. I'd obviously do some prep work, like removing inside kickboards and whatnot. But is this something I can do with my V8/4wd pickup? Or my 37 HP tractor?? Am I better off hiring someone? Has anyone moved a Klene pipe before?
Here's their website, btw: http://www.klenepipe.com/store.asp?pid=30885
I would use the tractor. Lower gearing and it's made to pull.
Make sure any anchors are removed. Use a pry bar to break the ground connection between the runners and ground. (like opening a paint can lid) This will insure the shed is moved before being pulled apart.
Don't just connect a chain between the two runners. Use a timber as a spreader bar. Otherwise the chain will collapse the runners together.
Slow is good... to correct anything before damage happens.
