    Yes, I have a rotary hammer.
    get a neighborhood kid and pay him $20 to get under there and strap/chain them...give him a small garden shovel or a small hand pick to dig under them if he can't get under them easily

    Re: Tractor guys - have a question moving granite steps

    So...my memory is horrible. I was working from home today and took a closer look:

    1st step: 8'l x 14"d x 7"h; 875lbs
    2nd step top slab: 8'l x 4'd x 7"h; 2,950lbs
    2nd step supports*: 4'l x 7"d x 7"h; 230lbs (each)

    *The supports under the 2nd step are perpendicular to the top slab. There are at least 2 (one on each side of course). I suspect there has to be at least 1 or 2 more to support the middle of the slab. I cannot see what is actually there without first sliding out the bottom step.

    These steps are only 32" from the edge of the deck and there is 10" of clearance (height) between ground and joists. I can back my full-size PU right up to this location.

    That top slab is going to be a trick and probably change opinions. Have at it. I'd love to be able to use it especially knowing it's that large. Looks like a piece that big is worth $1k+, so I would spend $$ to get it out. My gut tells me these suckers aren't going anywhere though.

    Couple of pictures:

    not that tough if you have an anchor in the direction you want to pull it to, here's a cu. yd. boulder (2000-2500 lbs.) I slid out of my garden when I first started preping it to till about 10 years ago.(you should have seen the production with floor jack getting it out of the hole it was in) I'm using a 3 ton chainfall in the photo
