Without violating OPSEC, could you give the uninitiated some specifications? Weight, dimensions, etc.?

How far do you need to move them, over what terrain, and are there many turns?

Do you have any of the following equipment:
pallet jacks
hydrological jacks (and what weight rating?)
telephone poles or other uniform round lumber
large pry bars
pulleys
winches

for specific information I will have to get back with you but its a 20 ft connex pretty much. It needs to be moved in the motor pool to another location in the motor pool. we have need a bigger forklift to move them because they were dropped off after pbo ordered them. they dont get used because we can move them (no pls or forklifts). They have them on our MTOE but no equipment to transport them.

Roughly 20x8x8 and 6500 lbs empty. by my research.

Could move one across a motor pool with 6-10 tanker bars (or comparable levers), adjustable fulcrums, 4-6 telephone posts, some rope and pulleys, and a platoon size element.

I'd dedicate at least half a day per.

Do you have an M88? Do you have an PLS with 20 foot long flatrack? There not too many options if you don't have any of these equipment. If you have an PLS use the hook tie a chain to the conex lift one end and with another PLS push the flatrack under the conex little by little. if you have an M88 you could lift the conex straight off the ground about 3 feet, and just push the flatrack under the conex.

If you had an M88 and picked it up, wouldn't you just go ahead and carry it to where you are going? Just asking.
