I reckon the planter will fall apart. Been asked if I can move 5 of them.

I was thinking winch it over and get something under it and drop it back down and winch on a trolley and winch onto trailer. Ratchet the planter all around about 5 times

I'm estimating 2 tons each. Still think the planter will break though

Would it be worth hiring a hiab. Strop around tree, lift and place on bites, or a pallet then two strops under, cradle lift and away you go.

Telehandler or forklift. But to get one which can lift 2t the transport costs will kill it. Lorry Hiab prob most sensible. Use truck or corners of planter to lift enough to get pallet under. Then slings thru pallet
