When my G0513X2 was delivered by UPS freight, the delivery driver refused to enter my driveway. I met him at a nearby gas station and transferred the saw, laying on it’s side in the shipping container, into my mini-van.

At home, my wife and I dragged it out and stood it up. The top of the saw was loaded first into the minivan, so the bottom was tipped down onto the driveway before moving it into the shop.

There is a lifting eye-bolt on the top of my saw that got bent somehow in this process, but it is not important to the use of the saw.

If your saw has cast iron wheels, you could also remove the wheels without too much difficulty, as they are very heavy. I don’t know if that is worth the trouble in your case.

The motor is probably the heaviest part, and might not be too hard to remove.

The upper and lower doors will lift off the hinge post easily to take off a few more pounds.

The trunion itself can be removed – maybe with a single bolt. I have moved the trunion on mine to center the adjustments of the lower guides, but not removed the trunion completely.

That, I realize, does not in any way answer your question, but just in case it was useful, I posted it.
