If all is good, I'll see if I can borrow some muscle and pick it up this weekend. The seller needs it gone by next week.
if there is no warping in the fire box you'll be able to lift the grates and center bar right out. unless the fire brick are original and pasted in you'll be able to take them out too. that's about all you can do to lighten these stoves.
i load them in P/U's by getting the narrow side opposite the doors just close enough to the tail gate for the top to rest on it when tilted over, then lift at the bottom and shove it in. just try not to crunch the bi metal regulator.
don't forget we can lift content from here over to the "railroad" thread to save band width here.
i'll be waiting to hear how it goes,
