    i have a job were we have to move a 10x12 shed all wood over about 15' i was going to use a walkbehind bobcat cause its all that will fit back into the area. But was wondering on the best way to slide it over.

    lag screw 4x4 or 4x6 skids under it and drag it.

    I did it by getting a set of forks for a dingo, and lifting up the rear and dragging it backwards. In order to keep the forks under the skid, I had to use 2, 4inch wide ratchet straps going around the entire shed. Luckily I just a broke a small section on the trim when the strap pulled tight. As soon as a backed myself into a corner, I unhooked the forks, moved the machine out, then pulled the forks out by hand.

    Then I just lifted on the corners or just pushed it into place.

    this took us about 3 hrs to move the shed about 4 miles, my dad, brother-in-law, my nephew and my grandson. in spite of all that family, we got something done without damage or injuries. :laugh:
