Hmmm, how to get the Yang Ming 40ft high cube shipping container off the back of the truck? Well it turns out you can pay thousands of dollars for the crane or do something rather more interesting with a chainsaw, some telegraph poles, a tractor, a winch and a jack. Mr Mandikonza who handled the whole procedure did a great job as you can see below.
Start by winching up the end
Then slip some poles underneath:
“Leo” thinks he can hide under the truck to avoid doggie dip day:
Attach to 125HP 4wd tractor :
and just pull:
Until this happens:
Then some brave person checks again that the brakes are on and crawls under with the jack:
Place the cut-to-fit p0les underneath:
Then just let down the jack and drive the truck away!
Now just pull it where you want it (using the same poles as rollers) with the tractor:

Incredible job – congratulations. Thought this wouldn’t be possible!
