Need some help to build a machine for lifting and pulling of weight 1000 kg approx.
Think like ancient Egyptian, Roman or Grecian. If I can get a 2500lb bandsaw on my tilt bed trailer, (two separate machines and occasions, I like bandsaws) by myself anybody can. Used two speed manual boat trailer winch loaded with tow strap, wooden peeler cores as rollers. Built a winch mount on receiver hitch for my little 4wd truck. Detach trailer, chock trailer wheels, move vehicle forward about 8 feet, park in neutral and chock it as well. This benefits catenary effect (lowers pull effort parallel to ground). Pay out winch strap and attach. Pry machine up for first roller, [nice with an assistant to keep the rollers fed from the front], start cranking and watch reaction of onlookers.
