I need to move a few Jersey barriers.

Will a Bobcat 863 with Forks pick them up? They weigh ~4000lbs a piece.

How far do you have to move them? Do they have to be loaded on a truck or trailer? I have moved them short distances with a s250

I have lifted 3800-4000 pound rock pallets with an 863 with metal tracks. We had a JD 310 backhoe on site and it couldn't unload the rock pallets off the semi trailer. I used my forks and though it groaned and creaked, I lifted the pallets and didn't tip. If your machine is in good condition, it should do it but I imagine you will start tipping. The lift arm geometry isn't suited to that extra weight as well as a vertical lift machine.

I only need to move them about 15ft to pavement then I can move them with a forklift.

worst case, wet the ground around them and push them... but you should be able to lift them somewhat.
