I moved a floor model DP220 by myself with just a hand truck and my pickup and I’m not a big guy at all. Take moving blankets with you to lay against the back of the hand truck to stop it from wanting to roll around. When you get to the truck you’ll be tipping it onto the tailgate and pushing it forward. Again, put it on moving blankets so it can’t really roll or get damaged.

If you want to you could probably just lower the table and head unit without disassembling anything to lower the center of gravity.
