However, It is a long distance from my home and I will  not have access to 
large equipment unless I rent it.  Someone else's  experience would be very 
    I guess I'm wondering why you feel the need to  disassemble it? For 
transport? "Ease" of disassembly? 
    You can slide the sections out once it's  horizontal but once it is 
horizontal, you can use different techniques to move  it; e.g. rent a small 
trackhoe (Kubota, DitchWitch, etc.), hire a bunch of  guys to carry out to the 
for a couple. Access is usually the limiting  factor in what options you have 
    If it's the motorized version, I wouldn't take it  apart at all. Umm, 
also if it's the non-motorized version, I wouldn't take it  apart either. 
    If you can't get it horizontal, that's another  challenge. Then you'll 
need a crane to extract it.
