Default Senior Design Project- Farmall 140

Hi, I am a senior in Construction Engineering. We are given the task to put a Farmall 140 tractor on a 11ft high ledge in the lobby of a building.
We have to describe the method of how we would get it in there and at what point in the construction process we would do this.

I would appreciate any advice.

Does anyone know how long it would take to assemble/disassemble a tractor?

Does anyone know of any equipment besides a crane that can lift a tractor(I think its about 4000lb)

Thank you for any help.

Built a ramp if you have the room drive it up there.
Or some kind of drive on lift and raise it up then floor jack it over.
Many more ideas am sure out there.
In the picture looks like you have it up there already.

The Farmall 140 weighs about 3000 lbs. It might be possible for a construction lift to place it up there. You wouldn't want to have it running or you'd have to drain the fuel tank once it's inside a building. I would do it before the ceiling is in place.

Most forklifts have the capacity to lift over 3,000 lbs no problem

I thought it was your job to figure out how to do it, not ask all us smart guys how we would do it. Besides it looks as if someone has already got it up there.
